Houston rapper Travis Scott released his third studio album, Astroworld, and it is Scott’s best album to date. The title, Astroworld, refers to the now closed Six Flags Astroworld theme park, in Houston. He chose this theme to refer to his childhood and to pay tribute to his hometown.

This is Scott’s best album because of everything it has to offer for a fan. First of all, it has many different moods so you can listen to it in almost every situation. From the chill vibes in “STOP TRYING TO BE GOD” to the upbeat songs like “SICKO MODE.” This album also has the best features out of any of his other albums such as, popular mainstream rappers Drake, Swae Lee, Kid Cudi, Juice Wrld, Sheck Wes, 21 Savage, Gunna, Nav, Don Toliver, Quavo and Takeoff. The album also features more well known artists such as Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams, The Weeknd and the surprising Stevie Wonder on the harmonica.

People have been anticipating this album ever since Scott started teasing the album a couple of years back. After waiting about two years for this album, there was definitely a lot of hype surrounding this project. Astroworld backed up all of the hype by hitting number one album on the Billboard 200 on August 18 and staying there for two weeks before dropping to number two.

The album has 17 songs with one single being “BUTTERFLY EFFECT.”

The best songs on the album include “STARGAZING,” “SICKO MODE”, “STOP TRYING TO BE GOD” and “YOSEMITE”. This album provides a new sound that Travis fans have not experienced before. The best way to describe listening to this album is that it is like a roller coaster. Astroworld 8/10.
