"The Idol" Premiere Afterparty - The 76th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Houston-born rapper Travis Scott continues to tease his upcoming album, Utopia. Yesterday, Scott made an appearance at France's Cannes Film Festival to attend the premiere of The Weeknd's new HBO series with Lily-Rose Depp, The Idol. Scott walked the red carpet, and his security guard had the rapper's famous Utopia briefcase in tow. Some reports even claim that Scott was seen opening the mysterious briefcase at the premiere. Utopia should arrive soon, with Epic Records' CEO Sylvia Rhone stating earlier this year, "We have a new Travis Scott record, expected to come in June." Scott also wore a previously-unseen pair of Nike sneakers to the event, leading to speculation that they could be a new Cactus Jack x Jordan product.

Scott has been taking an unconventional approach to promoting his latest album. He's gone so far as to handcuff a briefcase labeled "Utopia" to a member of his security team. As of late, he's continuously made appearances alongside the coveted briefcase. Earlier this month, Scott shared Utopia with the Houston Astros ahead of their game against the Chicago Cubs. In a video that circulated the internet, Scott told fans to expect the album soon. Early this month, as hype surrounding Utopia grew unmanageable for fans, one track reportedly from the album titled "Gold Blackberry" leaked on the internet.

Scott also recently joined athlete Tom Brady in attending a luncheon hosted by Michael Rubin for a group of young players making their transition from college football to the NFL. Scott reportedly told the athletes how important it is for them to maintain a solid inner-circle and hold them accountable. Brady gave the players advice, sharing, "I had to keep working. I didn’t go, ‘Hey, I’m good, I won three Super Bowls.'”

Scott also teamed up with fellow rapper Offset recently, to preview new music together at Rolling Loud Thailand. The rappers also reportedly brought a fan onstage during their set.
