Travis Scott’s “Highest in the Room” Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100
On Monday (Oct. 14), Billboard confirmed that the rapper's new single came out atop their Hot 100 chart in its first week out. The OZ and Nik D-produced track features uncredited vocals by his "The London" collaborator Young Thug and appears to speak toward the recent issues he went through with his now-ex, Kylie Jenner.
"She saw my eyes, she know I'm gone/I've seen some things that you might fear," Travis raps. "I’m doing a show, I'll be back soon/That ain't what she wanna hear!"
"Highest in the Room" is now Travis' second No. 1 record. His first was "Sicko Mode," which topped the charts in its 17th week in December of 2018.
As it stands now, the song does not appear on a specific project, but Travis was anxious to get it to the masses after fans were receptive to it during recent shows.
"To be honest it was sort of just something I wanted to perform at the tie," Travis told Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 earlier this month. "I was just performing it this is at a point where I’ve done it at so many shows and it’s been so fun doing it I was like man I gotta just drop this and I’m gearing up for something more special to come following that."
"I’m in no rush frankly but I’m taking my time to come up with the next album but I’m always down to drop music and serve some packs to the fans," he added. "It’s time for the fans to eat."
