Travis Scott made a triumphant return to the iconic stage of Saturday Night Live after nearly six years. The 32-year-old rapper graced the March 30 episode as the musical guest, alongside host Ramy Youssef, 33. During his electrifying performance, Scott treated fans to two tracks from his highly anticipated 2023 album, UTOPIA.

The first song, "My Eyes," showcased Scott's dynamic stage presence as he began the performance lying on his back within a sleek black structure. The atmosphere shifted dramatically as he rose to his feet, engulfed in flashing lights with a mesmerizing video backdrop.

For his second performance, Scott brought the heat with "FE!N," joined on stage by fellow rapper Playboi Carti (Jordan Terrell Carter), who also appeared in the track's official video released the same night. Dressed in a sleek black leather ensemble with a white T-shirt, Scott commanded the stage solo before Carti joined him, igniting the audience with their energetic collaboration.

SNL Comeback and Musical Milestones

Scott's appearance on SNL marked a highly anticipated moment for fans, especially following the success of his latest album, UTOPIA. Released on July 28, 2023, the album debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, with all 19 songs securing spots on the Billboard Hot 100.

This remarkable achievement solidifies Scott as only the 15th artist in history to accomplish such a feat. Prior to his SNL performance, Scott dazzled audiences at the Grammys on Feb. 4 with a memorable medley of tracks from UTOPIA.

His last SNL appearance dates back to Oct. 6, 2018, shortly after the release of his critically acclaimed album ASTROWORLD. During that performance, Scott delivered a medley featuring "SKELETONS" and "ASTROTHUNDER," accompanied by special guests John Mayer and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala.

Travis Scott's return to SNL not only reaffirms his status as a powerhouse in the music industry but also leaves fans eagerly anticipating what's next from the visionary artist.
