Travis Scott and Pharrell Williams have shared a new song titled “Down In Atlanta.” The track is performed completely by Scott with Pharrell leading the production.
“Down In Atlanta” marks the duo’s third collaboration following Pharrell producing “Flying High” from Scott’s 2015 debut album Rodeo. Pharrell later joined The Weekend on Scott’s “SKELETON” which is on his 2018 LP Astroworld.
The new offering from Scott and Pharrell is the Houston native’s latest guest appearance since the 2021 Astroworld tragedy. Earlier this year he was featured on Southside’s “Hold That Heat,” Nav’s “Never Sleep,” and DJ Khaled’s “Let’s Pray,” as well as Kanye West’s Donda 2 track “Pablo.”
As for Pharrell, the superstar producer revealed that his Something in the Water festival will return to his hometown of Virginia Beach in 2023.
“The demand for the festival in Virginia Beach and The 757 – among the people – has never wavered. If anything it has only intensified,” Williams said in a statement.
“College Beach Weekend continues every year and the city of Virginia Beach leaders have been eager to reconcile and move forward. The environment is finally optimized for return and the announcement will delight everyone – from HBCU students across the eastern USA to the hundreds of small businesses who will play a role in the festival to the cities within the region and neighborhoods that will serve as hosts. I need to come back home. There is a pervasive feeling by almost everyone that the festival belongs in Virginia Beach, and the time is right to bring it back.”
The lineup hasn’t been announced as of yet but last year it was held in Washington D.C. and featured performances from Chloe x Halle, Lil Baby, and more.
