After previewing the track at shows Travi$ Scott finally drops “Pick Up The Phone” with Young Thug and Quavo from Migos. According to Trav, the song is a bit of a protest and he chose now to randomly drop it because labels were “(making) this more complicated than it actually need to be.” He also said his album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is coming “soon.”
THIS SONG WAS SUPPOSE TO GO TO ITUNES BUT LABELS ARE MAKEING THIS MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT ACTUALLY NEED TO BE THIS WAS GONA BE MY SINGLE BUT NOW IM GIVING A WAY FOR THE KIDS [sic]
P.S. THEY MIGHT TAKE THIS DOWN CAUSE THEY DONT WANT KIDS TO EAT
FUCK IT GOOD NIGHT
BIRDS IN THE TRAP SING MCKNIGHT SOON
Then he went to Twitter to continue his message, saying “leaks ruin alot of things.”
LABELS. MAKEING THIS PROCESS TO COMPLICATED. I JUST WANNA MAKE MUSIC. AND SUPPLY WITH OUT COMPLICATION. LEAKS RUIN ALOT OF THINGS. GOTTA STAY POSITIVE [sic]
Travi$ recently said his album would drop “in a couple of f***in’ days,” but didn’t quite follow through. His concern that the label might take “Pick Up The Phone” down from his SoundCloud probably means the track is either on the album or was meant for it at some point. Either way it’s here now so enjoy.
