Despite being a busy man in 2017 — thanks to his surplus of features — Travis Scott still manages to make time for his own music. On Thursday (July 13), Scott returned with the eccentric video for his solo track “Butterfly Effect.”
Directed by BRTHR, Scott makes his viewers go through psychedelic hurdles while trying to capture every mind-bending image being tossed their way. While ghost-riding a gold Porsche in a trippy swirl, the “Way Back” MC zips along a highway reciting his verse as butterflies appear to fly out of his mouth.
“You in the mob soon as you rock the chain/ She caught the waves just thumbin’ through my braids,” he raps out of the car window. Besides conveying his affinity for fast cars and motorcycles, mobs of butterflies also float and swirl throughout the unconventional video, often emerging from the mouths of the long-haired models splashing around on the watery set. “Butterfly Effect” was one of the three tracks released by Scott last May. It was produced by his oft-collaborator, Murda Beatz.
At the moment, Scott is serving as an opener for Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN. Tour. On the music front, Scott recently made appearances on French Montana’s Jungle Rules, DJ Khaled’s Grateful, SZA’s CTRL, and 2 Chainz’s Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.
