During a special two-hour episode of his Beats 1 radio show, .WAV RADIO, Scott debuted a trio of new, non-album tracks: “Part Time”, “Zoom” featuring Gunna, and the Playboi Carti-assisted “Houdini”. The first song includes lyrics about the loyalty and exclusivity of his crew (“Gang just like fam/ No new ones, can’t take no chance”), while the second offering sees Scott sending out a warning shot to his haters (“If you try one of us you get put on the news”). As for the last tune, Scott brags about the impending success of Astroworld, his third-full length (“The gang go for a three-peat!”).
Elsewhere on the show, Scott also talked about the recording process behind Astroworld and highlighted some of the guest collaborators he’s worked with over the years, such as Justin Vernon and Drake. Speaking about Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who appears on Astroworld’s “Skeletons” alongside The Weeknd and Pharrell, Scott described him as “ill,” adding, “I think he’s a genius.”
