Travis Scott

It's safe to say that Travis Scott (II) is undeniably one of the best rappers working today. Any type of music he releases is done with immense creativity, quality verses and symbolism that warps the mind into new dimensions. Moreover, all three of his studio albums have gone platinum, with his latest effort, "Astroworld", being so successful it was nominated for a Grammy.

As he is known for his unusual style that gets people immersed, his songs are definitely anticipated by a lot of people and are greatly praised by music critics. Take his newest single "Highest in the Room" as an example. With the production remaining stellar and the hooks standing out, the song has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart with 59 million U.S. streams.

The stream marked the best premiere since Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" burst in earlier this year with 85.3 million. It additionally claims the strongest start among male musicians since Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover's "This Is America" began with 65.3 million. "Highest in the Room" earns Travis his second No. 1 single after Drake-featured "Sicko Mode", which became the first hip-hop song in history to spend at least 30 weeks on the chart's top ten region.

Not only Travis is a good rapper, but he is also a great live performer. Anyone who have attended his concert might not be able to deny that his shows are easily one of the greatest concert they have ever witnessed. His "Wish You Were Here" tour, for instance, proved how great of a performance Travis is as he transformed a concert into an amusement park. "It was one of the greatest live experiences I've ever seen from a performer, I'm not even remotely exaggerating," wrote one reviewer of the concert, which featured a roller coaster and a ferris wheel among others.
