HIGHEST IN THE ROOM - Travis Scott

The Experience: Hope I make it outta here... Addiction.
The Vibe: Despairing.
The Topic: Addiction. Drugs.
The Value: Freedom. Happiness.
The Tension: Everything I do is exciting (The high) VS. Hope I make it outta here (I'm trapped).

Music video: Marijuana smoke fills the visuals just like it fills the lyrics. After treating us to an awkward ride down his esophagus, Travis Scott wafts through scenes linking weed to standing out from the crowd, to fame (he's kidnapped), to sex (the smoke figures in the clouds and the red room) and to raw physical power (the boxing mismatch). In the end there's always the doubt: he stands head in the clouds... but only inches from a deadly fall and surrounded by "love" literally going up in smoke.

The Meaning of HIGHEST IN THE ROOM: Travis Scott tries to explain the hopes and fears and and addiction of the high. His metaphor is a girl - got her in my room - who's seductive - gorgeous, baby keep me hard as steel - and exciting - when I'm with you I feel alive. But she's also controlling and possessive - "I'm doing a show, I be back soon" (Soon) That ain't what she wanna hear - and poisons his mind - she fill my mind up with ideas (Straight up!) I'm the highest in the room (It's lit!). It's exhilarating:  I'm excited, everything I do is exciting, now play with giants, little bit too extravagant. But that high is still a prison: hope I make it outta here.

Ask yourself: Are you trapped inside what you settled for?

LYRICS:


Got her in my room
In my feelings (Yeah!)
She fill my mind up with ideas
I'm the highest in the room (It's lit!)
Hope I make it outta here (Let's go)

She saw my eyes, she know I'm gone
I see some things that you might fear
"I'm doing a show, I be back soon" (Soon)
That ain't what she wanna hear (No)
Now I got her in my room (Uh)
Legs wrapped around my beard
Got the fastest car, it zoom
Hope we make it outta here
When I'm with you I feel alive
You say you love me, don't you lie (Yeah!)
Won't cross my heart, don't wanna die
Keep the pistol on my side

'Case it's fumes (Smoke)
She fill my mind up with ideas (Straight up!)
I'm the highest in the room (It's lit!)
Hope I make it outta here (Let's go)

We ain't stressing 'bout the loot
My block made that caserío
This not the Molly this the boof
Ain't no coming back from here
Live the life of La Familia
It's so much gang that I can't see ya
Turn it up till they can't hear (They can't)
Running, running 'round for the thrill
Yeah, dog, dog 'round my real (Damn!)
Raw, raw, I've been pouring to the rim (Drank)
Naw, naw, naw, they not back of the VIP (In the VIP)
Gorgeous, baby keep me hard as steel
Ah, this my life I did not choose
Huh, been on this since we was kids
We gon' stay on top and break the rules
Uh, fill my mind up with ideas

'Case it's fumes
She fill my mind up with ideas (Straight up!)
I'm the highest in the room (I'm the highest, it's lit!)
Hope I make it outta here (Outta here)

I'm the highest, you might got the Midas touch
The brightest and my b-tch the vibiest
I'm excited, everything I do is exciting, now
Play with giants, little bit too extravagant
