Travis Scott joins Future and Southside on first song since Astroworld


Travis Scott appeared on his first song since the Astroworld music festival tragedy last November.

Scott is featured on rapper Future and producer Southside’s track, “Hold That Heat.”

The three artists also released a video for the song Saturday.

In the track, the 30-year-old rapper sings, “Hold that, hold that heater.”

It is unknown when the track and music video were recorded. A representative for Scott did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Last month, Scott spoke about the tragedy in Houston. Scott was performing at the festival when a wave of crowds left 10 dead and hundreds injured.

In March, the rapper shared with his instagram followers a link to his philanthropic campaign, Project HEAL.

“Over the past few months I have taken the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community,” Scott began. “Most importantly, I want to use my resources and my platform to move forward towards real change. This will be a journey of a lifetime for me and my family.

“Although it is easy for companies and institutions to remain in the shadows, I believe that as a leader in my community, I must step in when needed,” he continued. “My team and I created Project HEAL to take much-needed action to support real solutions that make all events the safest spaces possible. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who will forever remain in my heart.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper concluded, “Giving back and creating opportunities for young people is something I have always done and will continue to do for as long as I have the opportunity. This program will be a catalyst for real change and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the technology and ideas we’ve been working on. See you soon.

The statement marked the third time Scott has spoken about the tragedy since his first apology video and one subsequent maintenance.

When Scott, real name Jacques Bermon Webster, took the stage to close the 2021 Astroworld Music Festival, the crowd was already densely packed with fans looking to catch a glimpse of the headlining performer.

Many of them snuck into the place during the day. Authorities said 50,000 people attended the event in Houston. More than 300 people were treated at an on-site field hospital in NRG Park, with at least 13 hospitalized after the crowd would have increased before.

Scott was criticized for not stopping the show, but he repeatedly claimed he was unaware of the seriousness of the situation in the crowd from his perspective on the stage and only learned how bad things got after his set ended.

The youngest victim of the tragedy was 9-year-old Ezra Blount. The other people who died were between 14 and 27 years old, many of whom were named in lawsuits filed in the days following the tragedy.
