On the heels of announcing his forthcoming tour, Travis Scott released his new short film Birds in the Trap via Apple Music (March 14).
The 14-minute video features songs from Scott's Billboard 200 No. 1 album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. Directed by Fleur Fortune, the "Beibs in the Trap" rapper ruminates about life and death. After being engaged in a heated skirmish at a club, Scott clashes with his girlfriend in his car. Because of his belligerent behavior, his girlfriend asks to leave the car, allowing him to then roam through the city.
Once Scott secures some food, he ends up in a horrible car accident. The video turns edgier after he's hospitalized. Following the traumatic experience, Scott walks into an apocalyptic kind of atmosphere, where buildings are crumbling and cars are crashing into each other.
The film comes after Scott accomplished his latest feat of nearly reaching a billion streams with BITTSM. "With close to a billion album streams and a top ten most streaming album of all-time with Apple, we feedin' the streets again TONIGHT!," he wrote on his Instagram post.
On Monday (March 13), Scott reached another milestone when he landed the cover for the latest issue of British GQ Style. For his feature, he touched on his onstage tumble while performing with Drake during his Boy Meets World Tour last month. According to Scott, his flub was a thing of magic.
"I didn't fall, dude, I flew," he said. "I was floating. I don't fall. S--t, nothing happened. Floating is amazing. It's like getting in a plane. I just flew, man. I'm a magician, like David Blaine. I could never fall. Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He's a big brother, super-talent, he's cool."
