Travis Scott ft. Kendrick Lamar - "goosebumps"
Release date: September 2, 2016
Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott often find themselves on opposite sides of greatness when their respective styles of music come up. Kendrick's dense lyricism clashes against Scott's production and rabid energy, but the two shut naysayers up in 2016. “Goosebumps,” from Scott’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight album, is the best of both worlds.
Kendrick Lamar’s Gemini traits show up very often within his music as he constantly transitions between various voices and personas with swiftness. On “Goosebumps,” he uses these unique voice inflections to put further emphasis on a rather unconventional love song. Whether the affection displayed in the single is being aimed towards a person, drugs, or anything else that provides a euphoric feeling is irrelevant. Kendrick uses the varying tones in his voice as a mesmerizing factor to lure listeners deeper into the nearly obsessive sentiments he’s trying to explain.
