Travis Scott performed his songs at the Billboard Music Award on Sunday.

Its Billboard appearance this year marks the first awards show performance to be televised after the Astroworld festival tragedy last November.

The artist sang the songs of Mafia and Lost Forever accompanied by an icy landscape as a backdrop. She wore a fuzzy-looking outfit for her performance, while her backup dancers wore something similar.

The rapper sang the song Mafia to a woman wearing a white bikini with a fur coat.

The stage was turned into a black and white set for Scott’s Lost Forever performance. The star did not touch on the tragedy that took place on stage, but at the end of her performance she pushed the camera to face the roaring crowd.

The ceremony was hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs and French Montana.

According to an Instagram post shared by Diddy on Monday, she’s limiting her take on gigs for Scott.

On Billboard’s red carpet, the rapper was accompanied by his on and off girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their 4-year-old daughter Stormi. The couple became parents once again in February, this time for a baby boy.

Meanwhile, Morgan Wallen has made his first appearance after receiving backlash for a clip showing him shouting the N-word in 2021.

Astroworld music festival tragedy

A crowd crush broke out during Travis Scott’s set at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, where ten concertgoers allegedly died and hundreds more injured.

Some attendees claim that Scott continued to perform despite warnings from the audience. On the other hand, the rapper claims that he could not hear any screams.

Scott kept a relatively low profile after the Astroworld tragedy. He also offered to pay for the victims’ funeral expenses.

Regardless, Scott has been canceled from multiple gigs. He was also kicked out of his frequent collaboration with luxury brand Dior.

The rapper is preparing to release his long-delayed album ‘Utopia’ in the coming weeks.

This will be Scott’s fourth studio album after Rodeo (2015), Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight (2016), and Astroworld (2018). The singer also released a compilation album called Jackboys in 2019.
