Travis Scott has created some of the biggest hits of the last few years. Here's a look at the rapper's most popular songs to date.

Since his studio debut Rodeo in 2015, Travis Scott has become one of the most popular rappers in the world. The Houston native's ethereal trap sound has led to critical acclaim and some of the biggest hit songs over the last few years. Scott has recently teased a fourth album, Utopia, which the rapper is scheduled to release in June of this year. Here's a look at some of Travis Scott's biggest songs to date.

6. "90210" (2015)

Scott's "90210" was not featured as a single on Rodeo. However, the song is one of the album's standouts and is Scott's self-professed favorite song from the project. Despite "90210" not being a single, it has the second-highest streams on the album behind "Antidote," according to Streaming Masters. The song features background vocals from Kacy Hill and details Scott's move from Houston to Los Angeles, as well as Travis's experiences with family, women, and drugs after achieving fame. A year after the release of "90210," Scott released a music video for the song that depicts the rapper as an action figure. Many fans regard "90210" and its visuals as Scott's best of all time.

5. "Pick Up The Phone" (2016)

"Pick up the phone" is the second single from Scott's sophomore album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. The song features Young Thug and Quavo. Much like "Antidote," Scott released "pick up the phone" months before the album. Travis initially leaked the song on his Soundcloud because both he and Thug's labels would not agree to release it. Regardless, the song ended up being a hit as it peaked at No. 43 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was certified double platinum. At the time, "pick up the phone" was Quavo's highest-charting solo effort and also one of the highest-charting songs for both Scott and Thug. The music video for "pick up the phone" was also released in 2016 at the same time as the video for "90210."

4. "Antidote" (2015)

By 2015, Travis Scott was well-known in the Hip-Hop community for his producer abilities and mixtapes Days Before Rodeo and Owl Pharaoh. However, it was not until the release of the single "Antidote" that Scott gained mainstream attention. "Antidote" was the second single on Rodeo, yet Scott did not originally intend for the song to be on the album. He released the song months before Rodeo; however, its popularity led to its placement on the album. "Antidote" has an atmospheric production and drug-induced lyrics that captivated fans and helped establish Scott's unique sound. "The song peaked at No. 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 list and is certified quadruple platinum.

3. "HIGHEST IN THE ROOM"(2019)

In 2019, Travis Scott released the single "HIGHEST IN THE ROOM" to great fanfare. Scott debuted the song during his set at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami. After its release, it became Scott's second No. 1 hit single after "SICKO MODE." The rapper released a remix of the song in December 2019 that featured Rosalia and Lil Baby. The song's remix is featured on the Cactus Jack label's compilation album Jackboys. Scott also released a music video for "HIGHEST IN THE ROOM" which currently has over 500 million views on YouTube. The video reflects the song's drug-induced lyrics with psychedelic visuals and depicts Scott on the top of a building in a futuristic city.

2. "Goosebumps" (2016)

Travis Scott released "goosebumps" as the third single from Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, and the song has since amassed over two billion streams, according to Streaming Masters. "Goosebumps" was the most successful single from Scott's sophomore effort, and much of that is due to Kendrick Lamar's feature. The Scott and Lamar combination may have seemed strange to many fans at the time, as the two rappers operate in two different lanes of Hip-Hop. However, their styles blended perfectly on the track. "Goosebumps" peaked at No. 32 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and as of 2018, the song is certified 4x platinum. Travis also broke the Guinness World Record for most consecutive song performances during a show with "goosebumps" after playing it 15 times in a row in 2017.

1. "SICKO MODE" (2018)

Perhaps Travis Scott's most famous song is the third single from his album Astroworld, "SICKO MODE." The track features Drake and has amassed over 2 billion streams, according to Streaming Masters. "SICKO MODE" features three beat switches as the song begins with Drake before the beat drops for Travis' verse. Then, the two go back and forth at the end of the track. Rolling Stone Magazine declared the song to be the highlight of Astroworld, and many critics have held the track to high acclaim. "SICKO MODE" was also Scott's first No. 1 hit and received nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the Grammy. Scott also performed the song at the Superbowl LIII halftime show.
