After performing the woozy banger during his summer festival run, Travis Scott released his first single of 2019 with “Highest in the Room” on Friday (Oct. 4). The tune was initially teased in a Kylie Jenner Kybrow cosmetics ad back in April.
“She fill my mind up with ideas/ I’m the highest in the room/ Hope I make it out of here,” Trav rhymes presumably about Kylie Jenner on the chorus. Jenner spoke out for the first time on Thursday (Oct. 3) amid breakup rumors saying the she was in a good place with Scott and priority number one would be taking care of their daughter.
La Flame also hopped on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe on Thursday (Oct. 3) to chat about his latest single and what’s possibly to come with it. “I’m at the point where I’m just trying to cook up some dope shit and drop ‘Highest in the Room,’ and maybe put something around it,” he said. “Yeah, I mean I’m in no rush frankly, but I’m taking my time to come up with the next album. I’m always down to drop music and serve some packs to the fans. It’s time for the fans to eat.”
Trav released a couple merchandise alongside “Highest in the Room.” Head to Scott’s website to pick up a limited-edition picture disc or tie-dye t-shirt commemorating the single, which will be available only through the end of Friday (Oct. 4).
The new song is accompanied by an action-packed music video, directed by Dave Meyers and Travis Scott.
