Travis Scott has teamed up with Latin superstar Rosalía for their second collaboration, “TKN.”
On Thursday (May 28), Billboard premiered the song and its accompanying visual, directed by CANADA. Scott slips in a few bars in Spanish at the beginning of his verse before transitioning back to his usual sounds. He also performs in the visual amongst a small group of children dancing a choreographed routine.
In a statement, Rosalía explained her admiration for the Astroworld rapper and why she chose to work with him on this song.
“Travis is an artist who I’ve admired a lot since the beginning of his career and I can’t imagine a better artist to collaborate with on this song,” she said. “I feel that now is the moment to release this song, after so many months of staying indoors, missing freedom or being with people we love.
“I hope ‘TKN’ gives you energy, makes you dance, and gives you strength if you’re going through difficult times. With all my love.”
The pair worked together once prior in 2019, when Rosalía hopped on the remix to “Highest In The Room.” In addition to Scott (and by default Lil Baby, who also appeared on “Highest”), the Grammy Award-winning singer has worked with Pharrell Williams, Ozuna, A. Chal and more.
The singer’s last full length project El Mal Querer dropped in 2018.
