Earlier this month, Lil Uzi Vert teased the news that he was cooking up a collaborative track with Houston’s Travis Scott. Over the weekend, the “XO Tour Life” rapper let a fan hear a bit of the collaboration, but if you’re looking for a drawn out clip from the track, don’t get your hopes up.
Shortly after letting the fan, Sean Sharkey of Queens, New York, hear what we believe to be the song’s introduction, Uzi ran off into the night. This isn’t atypical for the 26-year-old rapper, who has a history of sometimes keeping his new music under wraps. Uzi’s most recent releases include his long-awaited second studio album, Eternal Atake (2020), which debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and Pluto x Baby Pluto, a joint album with Future. He’s grabbed headlines lately for getting an expensive pink diamond implanted into his forehead.
Towards the end of 2020, Uzi discussed sharing a project called Forever Young, which will follow in the footsteps of his Luv Is Rage albums. He has also bounced around the idea of an album that will be exclusively be available via streaming service SoundCloud. We’ll see if he opts to post official release dates for either one.
Travis Scott has been relatively quiet about his upcoming offerings. All he has shared so far is that his fourth studio album, Utopia, is set to debut in 2021. His last album, Astroworld, dropped in August 2018. He is featured on the official remix of the viral song, “Buss It,” which arrived in February 2021.
