Travis Scott is set to release a new single titled “Kpop” on July 21, featuring Bad Bunny and the Weeknd. The song’s announcement came through Scott’s social media, creating excitement among fans. This release follows his earlier tracks “Escape Plan,” “Mafia,” “Down in Atlanta” (featuring Pharrell Williams), and “Ring Ring” (with Chase B).
Travis Scott and the Weeknd have a history of successful collaborations, including tracks like “Power Is Power,” “Pray 4 Love,” “Wake Up,” and “Skeletons.” Scott also previously remixed Bad Bunny‘s “Krippy Kush” in 2017.

While fans eagerly anticipate the release of “Kpop,” they are also looking forward to Scott’s upcoming album, Utopia. The album is available for pre-order, but its official release date remains undisclosed. Utopia will mark Travis Scott’s first album since the tragic “mass casualty incident” at his 2021 Astroworld music festival in Houston, where eight people lost their lives and many others were injured. (Two additional deaths occurred in the following days, and a Texas grand jury recently decided not to indict the rapper on criminal charges related to the incident.)
The anticipation for Utopia has been building for over a year, with billboards promoting the album appearing in California ahead of last year’s Coachella festival.
Despite some controversy surrounding a planned livestream event in Egypt to celebrate “the world of Utopia” with a performance in front of the Pyramids of Giza, promoter Live Nation has confirmed that there are “no changes to Travis Scott’s show in Egypt; any reports to the contrary are false,” after Egypt’s Musicians’ Syndicate initially claimed they would revoke the permit for the July 28 concert due to concerns about its impact on Egyptian culture.
