PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT

ASTROWORLD is rapper Travis Scott’s third full length studio album and undoubtedly is his most successful. In the first week of sales, ASTROWORLD sold 553, 408 copies. To date, the album has been streamed over 165 million times. ASTROWORLD debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 album list and stayed there until this week, where it still sits at number two. The album contains a 58 minute run time and a total of 17 tracks in all. Not all the songs are done by Travis Scott himself, though. ASTROWORLD contains some big star names in the feature department including, Drake on “SICKO MODE,” Frank Ocean on “CAROUSEL,” Juice WRLD on “NO BYSTANDERS,” 21 Savage on “NC-17,” and 2/3 of Migos (Quavo and Takeoff) on “WHO? WHAT!”

If you’re wanting to listen to full album, I’d recommend you start from the first track “STARGAZING” and listen all the way through to the last track, “COFFEE BEAN.” If you’re one of those people who only want to listen to the best songs off the album instead of the whole thing, there are a few songs that I can say are the best on the album, although there’s not a bad song on this album. The three songs that I can recommend you listen to are “HOUSTONFORNICATION,” which has some similarities to some classic Travis Scott songs like “Antidote” and “goosebumps.” The next song that I recommend is “NC-17.” This song also shares similarities to “Antidote” and “goosebumps,” sounding more like the unique style of songs that Travis has created. The song also features 21 Savage, a solid musician on his own, who only adds to the song rather than takes away. The last song on ASTROWORLD that I recommend is “YOSEMITE.” This song is one of the more laid back songs on the album, sounding more like an R&B song rather than a rap song. In my opinion, that is what makes the song one of the best on the album.
