Travis Scott & Epic Records CEO Share Promising Update On “Utopia” Release Date
Among the several albums expected to drop this year, fans are anxious to hear Travis Scott’s Utopia. It’s been five years since Astroworld and Scott’s gone through the highs-and-lows of stardom within that period. He’s become one of the biggest brands in America with collaborations alongside McDonald’s, Jordan, and Fortnite to show for it. At the same time, his long-awaited “comeback” was impeded by the tragic events that transpired at Astroworld Festival in 2021.
Since the deadly crowd crush, Scott’s remained rather lowkey in the public eye. He hasn’t dropped much music since then, so it’s still unclear what we should expect from him o Utopia. Though he previously hinted at a project titled, Dystopia, the predecessor to Utopia, it appears that those plans may have been trashed and he’s gearing up to directly unleash his his fourth studio album.
Epic Records CEO Shares Update On Travis Scott’s “Utopia” Release Date
Travis Scott’s boss quietly revealed when we should expect the project last month. In a resurfaced excerpt from Sylvia Rhone’s cover story for Billboard’s Women In Music 2023’s Executive Of The Year, she outlined what to expect from the label, including a timeframe for Scott’s forthcoming effort. “We have a new Travis Scott record, expected to come in June,” Rhone’s said before giving a shout out to Future. “Last year, Future delivered the biggest album of his 10-year career at the company. How many hip-hop artists can do that and still be relevant?”
The resurfaced excerpt comes shortly after Travis Scott announced that his upcoming album would arrive after the rest of the Cactus Jack roster releases their respective projects. It seems that the campaign began this morning when Don Toliver released Love Sick. “We got Faygo about to put a little EP out. That’s on the way. And right after that, Utopia,” he said during a concert. So, it seems like Utopia will be coming out just in time for the summer, if all goes to plan. Just before that, he informed fans that Utopia was coming soon during a celebrity softball game. Check out Scott’s announcement above.
