Travis Scott is featured on a new track from Southside called “Hold That Heat,” marking his first official single since the Astroworld tragedy in November.
The song, which also features Future, was released on Friday, along with its music video.
“It’s what the game’s missing right now,” Southside tells Billboard. “It’s a breath of fresh air. If you couldn’t breathe and this was the last resort, this is it. It’s a fun record though and very full of energy.”
He says he and Travis made the song about eight months ago and it was Travis’ idea to get Future on the track.
“He ended up going around Future and getting it done and sent it to me like, ‘This [is] your single.’ Trav’s my real friend,” the Atlanta native says.
“Hold That Heat” follows Scott’s feature on the Kanye West song “Pablo” from his February album Donda 2, which was not widely released and only available for streaming on Ye’s Stem Player.
On November 5, 2021, 10 people were killed in a crowd surge at Travis’ Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas.
