Travis Scott Opens Up About His Music: 'It's Different Pieces Of My Brain'

Travis Scott goes shirtless on the cover of the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar Men, available now.

The 28-year-old rapper joined fellow musicians and cover stars Maluma, J Balvin and Orville Peck in the issue. Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Travis on labeling his music as a certain genre: “I would just describe it as different pieces of my brain—a mix of genres that I listen to on the daily.”

Maluma on his heritage: “Latin artists didn’t have all these opportunities in the past. I want to show the world the heritage of my country and the beautiful things we have that nobody knows about.”

J Balvin on encouraging others to embrace their individuality: “We need to be inclusive and respectful and accept everyone as they are. That’s the message I want to share with my fans through all of my platforms, either music or fashion.”

Orville on “the man behind the curtain”: “It’s not a persona of mine. I mean, I am Orville Peck. Yes, I wear a mask. I wear outfits that could be construed as costumes. I play on very heightened dramatic camp tropes, but that’s because I love country music and it embodies all those things. But I think I also produce quite a genuine current of sincerity throughout everything I do.”
