As soon as I heard this was coming, I clearly saw that Travis was not playing about kicking his new era off with a hit. Now fans are debating if the collab lives up to the expectations or it just sounds like a hit chasing record.
Travis Scott has been teasing Utopia for months at this point. Although the album release date has not been 100 percent confirmed, it would appear as though July 28th is the day. Overall, fans are very excited about this project, and rightfully so. It promises to be one of the biggest releases of the entire year. Moreover, Travis is promising a whole new sound with this one, and gave the first taste of what to expect today.
This morning, Travis Scott dropped the first Utopia single “K-Pop.” This song features the likes of The Weeknd and Bad Bunny. Overall, it is a song that was made with streaming numbers in mind. Moreover, it has a dance quality to it that makes it the perfect track for the summer. However, this was not the sound people were expecting for Utopia. While appearing on iHeartRadio, Scott made it clear that this song is just the opening of the gates for a “raw” experience.
Of course, with such a big release comes some even bigger reactions. As you can see in the tweets, fans had a lot to say about the new song. For the most part, many are saying that Travis, The Weeknd, and Bad Bunny make an amazing trio. Additionally, there are those who are calling it the perfect song for the summer. However, others are saying this is a very obvious money grab that will boost Travis’ numbers once Utopia officially drops.
Personally, I think it’s fine.. I’m not gagging or anything but I’m willing to bet that it’ll do well. Take a listen and a look at some of the reactions to the track and let us know your verdict. ISSA BOP OR ISSA FLOP?
