Travis Scott delivered a thrilling and genre-defying performance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend, which has everyone talking.


Live renditions of choice tracks from Astroworld came to life on stage with a little help from the rapper’s friends, John Mayer and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. An engaging medley of “Skeletons” and “Astrothunder” stunned the studio audience and those watching from home. Plus, fan-favorite track “Sicko Mode” took form with a delightfully weird visual presentation to match.

Travis Scott’s Astroworld has made an unmistakable impact on music in 2018. Upon the album’s release, all 17 tracks charted on Billboard‘s signature Hot 100 list.

The album, packed full of star-studded collaborations, boasted tracks with Drake, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Young Thug, 21 Savage, and more. That being so, bringing Mayer and Tame Impala on SNL to perform over those artists was an interesting choice, but an amazing move nonetheless.

A week after Kanye West stirred up political controversy following the show, this is exactly what SNL needed. Watch official uploads of the performance below and be sure to listen to Astroworld in full if you haven’t already.
