IT'S HIS WORLD

Travis Scott's ASTROWORLD (Cactus Jack/Grand Hustle/Epic) not only achieved the second-biggest debut of the year so far, but has broken the first-week streaming record for any Sony release to date, garnering nearly 350m streams worldwide. 

The artist launched the album with listening parties at Six Flags locations around the country, to underscore the theme-park concept of the album.

ASTROWORLD is vying for a second week at #1 on our chart, though it faces stiff competition from debuting Nicki Minaj.

Keeping his fanbase well-fed, Scott has unveiled another round of fresh merch at his website while bundling a digital album with most purchases. He's even offered to give $100k of his own cash to loyal fans for their support over the last two weeks. 

Scott will kick off the Astroworld Festival at NRG Park in his hometown of Houston on 11/17; he'll be the headliner, naturally, with support acts TBA.

In other theme-park news, HITS World is a dazzling fantasy landscape where you can see magic all around you, simply by breathing in the funny smoke.
