Travi$ Scott Recruits the Weeknd for New Track 'Wonderful'

Travi$ Scott has posted two new tracks – "Wonderful" and "A-Team" – on Soundcloud. The former features guest vocals by touring mate the Weeknd, with production by T-Minus, Boi-1da, Scott and Mike Dean. The latter was produced by Allen Ritter. 

"Wonderful," with its brooding synth-bass and skittering trap beat, is a perfect showcase for the Weeknd's soulful chorus hook. Scott contributes auto-tuned singing throughout, as the pair boast about strippers, weed and alcohol.     

"A-Team" finds Scott bragging about his first-string lifestyle over a hypnotic trumpet sample. "A-Team, got that A1 steak sauce; aw, can't take loss," he rap-sings. "A-Team, join my FIFA; roll my weed up, keep my D up."

Last week, Scott pled guilty to disorderly conduct connected to his August Lollapalooza set, which ended after five minutes as the rapper taunted security and encouraged fans to jump the barricade and join him onstage. He is now under one year of court supervision.
