Travis Scott has been previewing a track titled “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” for months now, even pre-releasing three different artworks for the single earlier this week. Now, the official version of the song is finally here in addition to a trippy new music video to accompany the song’s anticipated premiere.
So many different elements come into play within this three-minute clip brought to life by legendary music video director Dave Meyers. It starts off pretty grim, showing the ASTROWORLD emcee standing under dark skies while sparking up a few clouds of his own. As the narrative progresses, we see Trav get snatched up by a crew of colorfully-masked crooks in suits, then stripped by a few, well, strippers before finally getting his Mortal Kombat on against a purple figure. It all ends with his head high in the clouds — the “highest in the room,” get it? — gazing at a curvy figure that very much looks like his very recent ex-wifey Kylie Jenner. Coincidence maybe, but the timing is very interesting to say the least.
