Pharrell Williams and Travis Scott have joined forces for the new song ‘Down in Atlanta’. Check it out below.
“When you make it and then you listen to it in the whip, that’s when you know,” Pharrell told Apple Music 1 about the song. “At stoplights, stoplights on the highway, that’s when you just know. And this is just one of the ones. It’s because it’s also hearing Travis in rare form. It’s a 6/8 dance record, mid tempo. Just hearing him in that zone, just it’s great. It’s just one of those ones, bro. You can just listen to that s**t over and over again.”
This isn’t the first time the pair have linked up. Pharrell contributed to Scott’s 2015 track ‘Flying High’ featuring Toro y Moi, and they teamed up alongside Tame Impala for the Astroworld track ‘Skeletons’.
It’s not clear if ‘Down In Atlanta’ will appear on Pharrell’s upcoming album Phriends. Speaking about the project in Rolling Stone’s “Musicians on Musicians” series, he confirmed the album will feature BTS. “It’s [under] my name, and the title of the album is Phriends. It’s the volume one,” Pharrell said. “And I’m actually talking about this way more than I’m supposed to, but it’s a song from my album that [BTS] sang and it’s amazing, and I’m super grateful.”
Travis Scott also has an album on the way, Utopia, which has been in the works since 2019. In addition to releasing the tracks ‘Escape Plan’ and ‘Mafia’ last November, he’s recently guested on songs by Southside, Nav, DJ Khaled, and Drake & 21 Savage.
