Last Updated On:

Travis Scott is relatively new in the hip hop world, but he’s grown into a global icon. Four number-one hit songs on the Billboard Hot 100, 80 charted songs, and nine Grammy nominations are the basis for what should be a long and storied career for the rapper. His concerts are absolutely crazy, featuring mosh pits, crowd rushes, and incredibly energetic performances.

In this article, we’ll take a look at the 25 best Travis Scott songs released so far. Listen and learn about the songs from this relatively new global icon, Travis Scott. This list covers 25 of his best work.

1. SICKO MODE

Travis Scott - SICKO MODE ft. Drake

SICKO MODE is easily one of Travis Scott’s most recognizable songs and takes this top spot because it earned him his first number-one on the Billboard Hot 100. It also happened to be the first hip hop song to spend at least 30 weeks in the Top 10 of that chart and received Grammy nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards. If you’re looking for a Travis Scott song that shows him at the peak of his powers, then this is the song for you.

2. Oh My Dis Side

Quavo might not have a verse on this song, but his ad-libs add so much style to it that he more than deserves the feature credit. It’s an instant hit song from Scott, the story of his own life and the transition from that old life into the Travis Scott we know. From beautiful and calm music to raging gothic guitars, the sign has a bit of everything for everyone to enjoy.

3. Antidote

Travis Scott - Antidote

Antidote wasn’t written for the Rodeo album, but it still ended up being one of Scott’s best songs. It would eventually be the second single released from his debut album, peaking at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and being certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.

It’s perfect for ragers, the kind of song that’s quintessential Travis Scott. One of his most popular YouTube songs, it’s gained over 200 million views on the platform.

4. Goosebumps

Travis Scott - goosebumps ft. Kendrick Lamar

Goosebumps is the Travis Scott song that saw him break a Guinness world record in 2017 when he performed it 15 times in a row during a concert. The song was later remixed for an official release in 2021, where it debuted at number 85 and peaked at 32 on the Billboard Hot 100

5. 5% Tint

Travis Scott - 5% TINT (Audio)

Another song off Travis Scott’s best album, Astroworld, 5% Tint, is one of the best of the album. It mixes repetitive pianos with the low bass and trap beat, referencing several famous rappers (thankfully not in a diss-track style) before dissolving into the angelic voice of a woman singing the outro. It’s weird, it’s warped, it’s wonderful, and it’s Travis Scott.

6. THE SCOTTS

THE SCOTTS, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi - THE SCOTTS (Audio)

Dropping in 2020, THE SCOTTS debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, making it Kid Cudi’s first number-one and Travis Scott’s third. If you follow any gaming news, this was the song that snippets of got played during a Fortnite event called Astronomical that year in a virtual concert, seen by over 12 million players. 

7. Don’t Play

Travi$ Scott - Don't Play (Official Music Video) ft. Big Sean, The 1975

Big Sean and Travis Scott lay down some heater verses in this song, and the smooth sample from M.O.N.E.Y. fits in just fine. It’s got all the snappy energy you want from a Travis Scott song and then some, sounding better and better as you turn up the volume. 

8. Butterfly Effect

Travis Scott - BUTTERFLY EFFECT

The butterfly effect is based on a butterfly shifting its wings, creating a storm on the other side of the world. The principle of the theory is that tiny things can have a massive impact on the world, even if it goes unseen. That concept is the basis for this song, pairing the themes with a hazy music quality to create one of Scott’s most chill songs.

9. Pick Up The Phone

Ever tried calling your girl, but she just won’t answer, causing you to question the entire relationship? That’s pretty much the basis for Pick Up The Phone. It’s a perfect summertime banger, fittingly released in the middle of June 2016, questioning whether their loyalty to their girl is even worth it at that point.

10. 90210

Travis Scott - 90210 ft. Kacy Hill

90210 is one of Scott’s most creative songs. Flowing through electric guitars and distorted vocals for the first half, it explodes into a faster-paced track. The unique way it’s sung makes it a fan favorite, and the accompanying music video is absolute excellence in stop motion. Kacy Hill’s soothing vocals add another layer to the song and perfect the style they were going for too. 

11. Drugs You Should Try It

Travis Scott - Drugs You Should Try It (Music Video)

If you’re curious about trying drugs but don’t want to, stay away from this song. It’s a chill, laid-back, and open track from Scott that will make you want to try drugs more than you ever have in your life. It also serves as a reminder of how versatile Scott can be with his music, as it’s a far cry from the raging hype songs he might be best known for.

12. 3500

3500 was the first single released from Scott’s debut album, Rodeo. The title could refer to a few things, but generally, it’s the $3500 coat Kim Kardashian bought for her daughter, as confirmed by Scott on Instagram. Initially, the song was meant for a Kanye West album, but its beat didn’t fit in and ended up being reworked by Scott for his debut album instead.

13. Maria I’m Drunk

Maria I'm Drunk

Whoever said Justin Bieber can’t rap hasn’t listened to this track—featuring three of the biggest names at the time of release: Scott, Bieber, and Young Thug. Maria I’m Drunk is one of Travis Scott’s chiller songs.

A simple trap beat combined with piano and organ music sets the vibe for the layered talent of the three artists on this one. Watching all three artists play off of each other shows just how good all of them were in the mid-2010s and makes you want to see future collaborations between them all.

14. Mamacita

Travis Scott - Mamacita ft. Rich Homie Quan, Young Thug

Mamacita stands as yet another example that a team-up between Travis Scott and Young Thug brings nothing but great tracks. The song spans the whole party scene; sex, drugs, rock and roll, and partying are fully displayed. The addition of Rich Homie Quan adds an extra layer to the verses, and watching them go back and forth is a true treat. 

15. NO BYSTANDERS

Travis Scott - NO BYSTANDERS (Audio)

NO BYSTANDERS might be one of Scott’s best hype songs. When he performs, he doesn’t want the crowd to just stand around and listen, he wants them to rage in the audience. It’s one of his most exhilarating tracks that’s meant to make you get up and move, telling those who don’t want to just go ahead and go home.

16. Upper Echelon

Travi$ Scott - Upper Echelon (Official Music Video) ft. T.I., 2 Chainz

If you’re looking for a hook that goes hard in the signature style of Travis Scott, there is no need to look any further than Upper Echelon. Hearing “we so high, upper echelon (straight up)” is a perfect hype hook, and it gets ad-libbed by Scott during the well-done verses by T.I. and 2 Chainz in the track. It’s one of his earlier tracks and many people’s first impression of Travis Scott, and for that, well done. 

17. Way Back

Way Back is a great example of Travis Scott’s ability to create two-part songs that make sense. The trap vibe flows smoothly throughout the song, and the vocals by Kid Cudi fit right into the overall vibe. It’s not often you find a rapper successfully name-dropping as many celebrities as they’re able to pull off in this one without it being a massive diss track or a troll song, but it’s done in this song brilliantly. 

18. Skyfall

Travis Scott - Skyfall ft. Young Thug (Music Video)

Skyfall might be seen as a “get high” anthem, but it wasn’t meant to be in the beginning. It’s actually about older artists falling off because they can’t connect with younger generations, with the sky falling in the song being the biggest stars in music and the drugs calling being their inevitable collapse into obscurity rather than a call to actually do drugs (he’s done that before so makes sense to be confused). 

19. Through The Late Night

through the late night

If you’ve heard the song Day N’ Night, you’d probably assume this song is meant to be a sequel to that track. Through The Late Night features Scott’s signature lyrical style and Kid Cudi’s classic hum as the main instrument of the song, with Scott playing the supporting role of one of the greats.

20. GATTI 

JACKBOYS, Pop Smoke, Travis Scott - GATTI (Official Music Video)

You probably wouldn’t expect to be met with a wall of violin music in a Travis Scott song, but then you’re probably undervaluing the creativity behind his music. GATTI is a massive hype song, sampling the building violins of orchestral tracks to add something special to a typical trap beat. Plus, it’s got all the braggadocious elements you would want from a hype song. 

21. Yosemite

Travis Scott - YOSEMITE

Travis Scott is known to layer elements into his songs that aren’t just typical trap beats, creating something unique and more creative than a lot of what you hear on the market. Yosemite is an excellent example of this, creating a specific airy vibe with flutes and twangs that could come right out of a country western song to make something that should be the background music for a nature documentary. It’s a chill break in his repertoire and shows his versatility. 

22. Wake Up

Travis Scott - WAKE UP

This incredible mixture of rap and R&B became many people’s favorite tracks on the Astroworld album, going outside Travis Scott and The Weekend’s typical sound. Unsurprisingly, it’s a rather explicit description of the two rapper’s previous relationships, but it’s handled in a masterful manner that compliments the acoustic guitar riffs throughout. 

23. Uptown

Travi$ Scott - "Uptown" LIVE at Billboard | The Juice

Uptown is one of Travis Scott’s best-raging songs. In fact, watching concert videos, it’s probably the song playing when he starts climbing stuff all over the stage. It hits hard and just never lets up with the beat, perfect for the mosh pits at his concerts or when you’re driving the highway “way, way, wayyy” too fast. 

24. Sloppy Toppy

Travi$ Scott - Sloppy Toppy (Ft. Migos & Pewee Longway) [Days Before Rodeo]

Sloppy Toppy is kind of hilarious when you go through the lyrics. It’s almost like that feeling in middle school when your friends hype you up to talk to a girl or try to go farther on your next date while also including one of the funniest descriptions of blowjobs I’ve heard in a while. In the end, the song is a good time, and worth a listen to, despite not being particularly deep.

25. First Take

First Take might be one of the few songs that seem out of character for Scott. Both he and Bryson Tiller drop verses about women they love but can’t be with and the hardship that comes from getting played by someone you care about. It’s a sentimental and vulnerable look into the mindset of the artists that also shows that love can be hard, even if you are a rap star with the world at your fingertips.
