Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Travis Scott:


Length: 4:03

Release: 2017

Opening Lyrics:

7:30 in the night, yeah
Ooh-ooh, ooh
I get those goosebumps every time, yeah, you come around, yeah
You ease my mind, you make everything feel fine
Worried ’bout those comments, I’m way too numb, yeah
It’s way too dumb, yeah
I get those goosebumps every time, I need the Heimlich
Throw that to the side, yeah
I get those goosebumps every time, yeah, when you’re not around (straight up)
When you throw that to the side, yeah (it’s lit)
I get those goosebumps every time, yeah
713 through the 281, yeah I’m ridin’
Why they on me?
Why they on me? I’m flyin’, sippin’ low-key
I be sippin’ low-key in Onyx, rider, rider
When I’m pullin’ up right beside ya
Pop star, lil’ Mariah
