Houston’s biggest stars, Beyoncé and Travis Scott, are keeping fans entertained with ambitious new projects.
Scott has reteamed with Kanye West for a new song and video called “Wash Us in the Blood.”
It’s the first taste of West’s upcoming “God’s Country” album. The song was mixed by Dr. Dre, and the video was directed by Arthur Jafa.
The gospel-rap song recalls the sound of West’s “Yeezus” album. The fast-paced clip features images of police brutality, people in masks and Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed Louisville police in her home.
“Let it off, set it off/ Executes in thirty states/ Thirty states still execute/ Thou shall not kill/ I shall not spill/ Nextels at the rendezvous”
The single is available for preorder at shop.kanyewest.com as a 12-inch picture disc, 7-inch red vinyl, red cassette, CD and digital single.
West released his “Jesus Is King” album in 2019 and promoted it with an appearance at Lakewood Church, where he called himself “the greatest artist that God has ever created.”
“Wash Us in the Blood” is one of many projects Scott has been part of this year. He teamed up with the video game “Fortnite” for a virtual concert and premiered a new song, “The Scotts,” with Kid Cudi that topped the Billboard Hot 100. He also collaborated with Spanish singer Rosalia for the song “TKN.”
We all know Beyoncé loves a surprise. And she’s just dropped another one.
The Houston superstar will release “Black Is King,” a visual album, July 31 on the Disney+ streaming service. It’s based on last year’s “The Lion King: The Gift” album, released alongside Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated classic.
“Black Is King,” was written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé and reimagines the lessons of the film for “today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns,” according to a statement. The film was in production for one year with a cast and crew that “represent diversity and connectivity.”
Beyoncé voiced Nala in the 2019 film, which earned more than $1.6 billion…
