At times like these, lots of people resort to music or video games to take their mind off the stress of everyday life. Combining music and video games, Travis Scott and Fortnite collaborated and broke the record of Fortnite players on at once – over 12.3 million.
Travis Scott, an American rapper most known for his songs like Goosebumps, Sicko Mode, and Antidote, performed a virtual concert on Fortnite on Thursday, April 23. The performance was nothing like I have ever seen before. The performance began with a ginormous figure of Scott in front of a stage, at least 10x bigger than any other player. The players were doing things like headbanging and moshing during the performance. The graphics were insane, bright colors filled my screen and backdrops changed right before my eyes. It was a very captivating performance.
After the performance, Scott Tweeted, “HONESTLY TODAY WAS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING DAYS. LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF U GUYS. AND I KNOW TIMES ARE WEIRD FOR US. BUT FOR ONE MOMENT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE RAGERS TO RAGE WHERE EVER YOU ARE IS AMAZING. LOVE U GUYS WITH ALL MY BODY. !!!!! GANG.”
Comments on his event included users saying that it was the best part of their day and that Scott is the GOAT, greatest of all time. One user even commented that this performance made his quarantine so much better.
