Travis Scott has been in the game for many years, and while he may still feel like a "newer" artist in many ways, his breakout Owl Pharoah tape arrived eight years ago. And while that project boasted a fair number of bangers, many really started taking notice upon the release of Rodeo -- an album that landed five years. Boasting ambitious and experimental production galore, not to mention a slew of high profile guest appearances, Rodeo also spawned one of the best songs in Scott's arsenal thus far -- the slow-burning and hazy "Maria I'm Drunk."
Featuring some absolutely raucous appearances from Young Thug and none other than Bugatti Biebs himself, Justin Bieber in full Bieberveli mode, "Maria I'm Drunk" makes the most of its near-six minute runtime. With all three artists laying their cards on the table, the song quickly establishes itself as a lusty anthem, one that speaks to particularly to the inebriated hookup, consensual of course, during which inhibitions tend to disappear. Beyond that, however, "Maria I'm Drunk" is a layered piece of music that rewards those who take the time to throw the headphones on, pour themselves a glass, and get lost in the hedonistic odyssey. Do you feel this one stands among Travis' finest hours?
Never ever do I wanna leave my little lady
Patrón down, back down, they got a plan for that boy wake
Told God if I get an iced out watch I won't be later
Every time I try to stick it in all the way
Baby girl be like, "ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy"
