Travis Scott To Debut New Song, Go "On Tour" In Fortnite Video Game
If Travis Scott's love for video games wasn't apparent when it was revealed he exclusively produced the NBA 2K19 soundtrack, now he's taking it to the next level with a virtual tour and song release on Fortnite.
The rapper is teaming up with the multi-player battler royale video game April 23–25 for Astronomical, a "musical journey" "inspired by Cactus Jack’s creations, built from the ground up in Fortnite," according to a statement.
Fans can hear the new song and experience the event different times depending on their location. Players are encouraged to grab their spot 30 minutes before the performance begins.
The schedule is as follows:
- 4/23 - The Americas - 7PM EDT
- 4/24 - EU & ME - 10AM EDT
- 4/25 - Asia & Oceania - 12AM EDT
- 4/25 - EU & ME - 11AM EDT
- 4/25 - The Americas - 6PM EDT
The new project follows Scott's third LP, 2018's Astroworld, which earned the Houston-born artist his first No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200, along with a GRAMMY-nomination for Best Rap Album.
