I'm very happy Lil Baby didn't make it onto the song because Travis absolutely destroyed this song. In a good way. He has such a chill laid back flow with a very catchy hook. The beat is really trippy and has a pretty neat little ghostly synth sample as well as some cool acoustic guitars. But the biggest highlight is the very dramatic outro filled with a really thick synth and layered vocals.
And the award for best Outro of 2019 goes to..

Digging this more psychedelic direction Travis has been going lately, really neat seeing these elements coming more prominently into mainstream hip hop with songs like A$AP Rocky’s “Sundress” also coming to mind.

Also: r we not gonna talk about Kylie 👀
The entire track up to the last thirty seconds is just OK but then there is this spacious and gorgeous outro with a piano and expensive sounding production that is actually really impressive and awe inspiring, I just wish it could have lasted longer.
Absolutely loving this one, Travis has done it again! Flow is brilliant, catchy as all fuck hook, lyrics are fine, and it has a great outro. Also loving the synths, and his vocal delivery all round as I usually do. A very good track, ethereal and atmospheric, and definitely one that will grow on me all the more I listen.
That outro though! This single is in the middle for me. When I first heard it I thought it sounded like an Astroworld throwaway but after hearing it some more times it’s sounding much better and it’s clicking with me more.
