Travis Scott has spent the past month promoting his new McDonald’s collaboration, but before that he had a new song, “The Plan,” which was featured in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, one of the only new movies to come out in theaters this summer.
Tenet is still in theaters in the parts of the world that have movie theaters open, and on Thursday night, in select IMAX theaters showing Tenet, Scott debuted a self-directed music video for a new song called “FRANCHISE.” That video and song has now made its way to the World Wide Web — it features Young Thug and M.I.A., and you can check it out below.
Christopher Nolan approves:
In an interview with Apple Music, Scott talked about working with M.I.A.:
I actually, she reached out to me for something for her album and we tracked it like in London, you know. She’s just one of my favorite artists as humans. So it was just amazing and you know, just chopping it up and spend some time. When I finished the song, I couldn’t think of nobody else that I could probably just maybe like, body this sh-t. You know what I’m saying? Body this sh-t like as hard as like anyone else, any other rapper, any other artists. And just that presence, man. We ain’t felt this presence in a long time. I’m just trying to get this gig sh-t like right man. We got to get better, right? You know what I’m saying? Like all of this, the energy man, music, beats, raps, God! Everything, she’s the illest of all time.
“FRANCHISE” is out now.
