It’s been over two years since the rapper’s last full-length solo album. Making this his third studio album following 2016’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. The highly anticipated Astroworld project launched with a trippy galaxy-space-feel album trailer.
WHERE DID ASTROWORLD COME FROM?
The album name is a reference to Scott’s favourite Six Flags theme park in Houston, Texas, that he always visited as a kid; the park closed down in 2005. Scott was inspired by the park’s creativeness, creating a fantasy vision.

Huge names including, The Weeknd, Migos and Frank Ocean are among some of the guests featured on the album. Pharrell Williams also helps out on a track called ‘Skeletons’.
