Travis Scott is back with a brand new single that delivers exactly what you would expect from the Houston-based rapper. “Highest In The Room” features the elite level of hip-hop production that the “Astroworld” rapper has become known for: a beat that is equal parts eerie and ferocious, with a consistent flow drowning in his signature, autotuned drawl. The last forty seconds or so flip the song on its head a bit, transforming the track into a beautiful, piano-and-synth-driven outro. While the track sounds a little bit like every other Travis Scott song and doesn’t stand out as a particularly noteworthy or important addition to Scott’s repertoire, it’s still worth listening to if you’re a fan of his other work.
