“UTOPIA” by Travis Scott

A 2023 hip-hop album

Travis Scott’s “Utopia” was released on July 28th, 2023. This grammy-nominee album was anticipated by many people to come out. The album showcases his versatility as an artist by blending genres like trap, hip hop, and pop. Songs like “FE!N” or “TOPIA TWINS” are really great hype songs that get people amped up. While some lyrical songs like “MY EYES” or “TELEKINESIS” display his signature auto tuned vocals. However, some tracks on this album lacked lyrical depth such as “FE!N” or “HYAENA” While Scott’s lyrics often delve into themes of ambition and fame, some listeners may find them lacking in depth as compared to other artists in the genre. Another thing to add is that some tracks may feel slightly repetitive such as “MY EYES” or “PARASAIL.” This can bore some listeners, especially with the lengths of some of these songs being too short or too long. Overall, “Utopia” is a captivating exploration of Scott’s creative vision and truly helped solidify his status as one of the most innovative figures in hip-hop. I would definitely consider listening to “Utopia.”
