The 6 Best Travis Scott Remixes
As a new generation of rappers emerges, new personalities rise to the top of the game. Some MCs come and go after a couple of hits. Some rappers prove slow and steady on a rise to greatness. Travis Scott is one face that won't soon fade into obscurity. His most recent album, Astroworld, caught music critics by pleasant surprise. It dropped in early August 2018 and rocketed to the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Still, these aren't Scott's first hits. He first came to Hot 100 prominence in 2015 with fan-favorite "Antidote." He's had 40 hits on the chart to date, boasting features with and for some of the biggest names in the modern music from R&B to rap and electronic dance. His own tracks are hugely popular among DJs, and producers love to give his biggest songs energetic remixes. Here are six of our favorite Travis Scott songs remixed. Which is yours?
