Kevin Durant is one of many fans waiting patiently for Travis Scott’s next album, the highly anticipated UTOPIA. Moreover, he recently revealed during the latest episode of podcast The ETCs with Kevin Durant that Travis actually spoke to him about it. According to La Flame, UTOPIA might rank as one of his best projects yet, although we know very little about it. In fact, Travis moved with such secrecy and mystery regarding UTOPIA that even a star basketball player is finding access a bit difficult. Regardless, Durant said that he’s still trying to hear some snippets ahead of its launch.
“I didn’t hear it, and I want to ask for some songs,” the 34-year-old expressed. “But I know for a fact he won’t send them, so I might have to catch him in the studio one of these days before it comes out, but he’s telling me that it’s f***ing insane.” Of course, the “Road to UTOPIA” has been long, arduous, convoluted, and rarely updated until recent reports. Still, it remains one of the most anticipated projects of the year.
Kevin Durant On Travis Scott’s UTOPIA: “He’s Telling Me That It’s F***ing Insane”
Unfortunately, the rollout for this new album was cut short when ten people tragically lost their lives at the Astroworld Festival in 2021. Before that, the “goosebumps” rapper teased the project only through mentioning its name, whose futuristic allure got fans excited. Back in August of 2022, after many months of restraint, the artist announced a one-week residency at a Vegas nightclub. However, now things look much clearer, as Travis and other sources hinted towards the album’s soon-to-come drop.
“We have a new Travis Scott record, expected to come in June,” Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone said during an acceptance speech at Billboard‘s Women In Music event this year. Meanwhile, Scott outlined upcoming releases from his Cactus Jack camp, which could actually push UTOPIA back depending on how those prior releases go. “Sheck Wes, You Know The Scouts is on the way, we got Faygo about to put out a lil EP that’s on the way,” he said during an NBA All-Star Weekend event this year. “And right after that, UTOPIA. So we came here with that message and I can’t wait for these motherf***ers to drop this s**t.” Let us know if you’re looking forward to UTOPIA in the comments and come back to HNHH for the latest on Travis Scott and Kevin Durant.
