Exploring the Songs on Travis Scott's Astroworld Tour Setlist

Since its kick off on November 8th in Baltimore, Travis Scott's Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour has been making headlines with its aerial tactics, amusement park-theme (yes, there's an actual ferris wheel that one lucky fan gets to ride during the show) and explosive stage effects.
It's lit!
The tour is in support of his third studio album, Astroworld, which dropped back in August. The amusement-park-inspired album features a ton of guest spots, some of which make an appearance on stage. Scott invited Gunna, Sheck Wes and Trippie Redd along for the ride, with Drake and Kanye scheduled to make their debuts at select dates.

Singles "Butterfly Effect," "Yosemite" and "Sicko Mode" preceded Astroworld's release, and the record's since received critical acclaim, earning a spot atop the US Billboard 200.
It's certainly been a whirlwind for the rapper, who's just as excited to share his music as people are to hear it.
"If you locked into Rodeo, you definitely locked into Astroworld," Scott said.
"I'm just finishing the saga I started on my first album. This is supposed to be my second album. I had to go quick, because like I said, I had all these ideas, I just had to get off real quick, but now I'm finally back home with Astroworld."
Fans in attendance are treated to a roughly two-and-a-half hour show, hearing songs from all of Scott's previous albums– 2015's Rodeo, 2016's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight as well as some of his collabs.

This psychedelic trap song will get you rollin', rollin', rollin'.
Travis has always shown an interest in astrological exploration; after all, NASA's Mission Control Center is located in his hometown of Houston. Scott's also thinking of making a new brand for his merch aptly called S.P.A.C.E.
But "this right here is astronomical." One of the most popular songs off of Astroworld, Scott first debuted "Stargazing" on Snapchat in April 2018 before teasing the song at Rolling Loud back in May.
Check out the icy snap that started it all:

"Butterfly Effect"
"Butterfly Effect" was the first single for Astroworld released in May 2017 on SoundCloud, along with two other songs: "A Man" and "Green & Purple," featuring Playboi Carti.
Scott debuted this song in St. Louis last year– check out this fan video:

Off his debut album, Rodeo, this track features 2 Chainz and Future on vocals and samples Nicki Minaj's "Want Some More."
In an Instagram post, Scott suggests the title stems from a $3,500 jacket Kim Kardashian bought for her toddler daughter, North West. It was also originally supposed to be a Kanye track.

"[The song] was something that was supposed to be on the ‘Ye album, Scott said in an interview.
"Something I did in Malibu. And that beat sounded completely different. That hook came cause ‘Ye put my verse in the ASR and chopped it up. That was going to be his single, but he was working on his album so long and my album was coming up, so I was like ‘Yo, I wanna f*ck with this.'”

"Love Galore"
"Love, love, love, love/ 'Long as we got love, love, love, love..."
This duet off of SZA's debut album, Ctrl, earned the pair a Grammy nod in 2017. "I’m definitely a huge fan of Travis," SZA said about teaming up with the rapper.
"I think he merges that super-fine line between melody and syncopation and pocket. And I love his pockets, and I love his note choice. He’s just gnarly. He’s perfect."
It's the pair's second collaboration after Rodeo's "Ok Alright."

An ode to a lavish lifestyle, "Yosemite" features vocals from NAV and Gunna. Scott mimics Gunna's flow from his song, "Sold Out Dates," as Gunna himself delivers the smooth hook, "I went to school where they teach you to finesse/ Five hundred shoes for the drip I invest/ I'm the boss man, I keep cash in the desk/ Know the coupe fast when it end with a S."
Check out the similarity between the rappers' sounds on "Yosemite" and "Sold Out Dates."

Scott's second single from Birds in the Trap, "Goosebumps" has become one of the artists' staples. The eerie love song features a guest spot by Kendrick Lamar.
"I met [Kendrick] at the MTV Music Awards one year and he came up to me and was just like, 'Yo, man, I f*ck with your music. It’s super dope and inspirational.' I was like, whoa, this is the best rapper in the globe– he f*cks with my music!"
The rest is history. The song is just as popular now as it was upon its initial release, and it's even broken records! Scott set the record for the playing a song consecutively the most amount of times in Oklahoma City during his Birds Eye Tour in 2017, performing "Goosebumps" a whopping 14 times in a row.
Yes, that's right. 14 times. In a row. Check out the debauchery below.

"Sicko Mode"
Like his setlist, I had to save Scott's best song for last. "Sicko Mode" features Drake and Swae Lee on vocals and recently climbed to No. 1 on the Hot 100 in its 17th week on the charts.
Young La Flame was definitely in sicko mode while writing this song– the three-part odyssey transcends from a hype-man intro by Drake into a rhythmic roller coaster of three distinct sections with mentions of a certain smoothie retailer ("I just landed in, Chase B mix up this pop like Jamba Juice"), a few samples Biggie Smalls and Big Hawk ("Gimme the loot!/ Playin' for keeps, don't play us for weak") and an outward admiration for the success of his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner ("Baby mama cover Forbes, got these other b*tches shook, yeah").
The song has made a name for itself in pop culture, and EDM guru Skrillex just released his own remixed version.
