Sei mesi dopo aver perso la testa dopo la tragedia dell’Astroworld, Travis Scott ha finalmente fatto un vero ritorno ai Billboard Music Awards 2022, ma i fan non sono troppo contenti.

Negli ultimi mesi, il rapper “Sicko Mode” ha lentamente cercato di tornare sul palco esibendosi in una serie di eventi, tra cui un after-party al Coachella e un weekend del Grand Prix di Miami. I BBMA segnano la prima volta che appare sulla televisione nazionale e deve ringraziare P. Diddy. “Per i Billboard Music Awards questa domenica ho fatto una richiesta, ho fatto una richiesta. Ho detto ‘Mio fratello Travis Scott deve esibirsi. Sono produttore esecutivo, lui deve esibirsi'”, ha detto in un video di Instagram. In un’intervista con REVOLT Black News, ha espresso il desiderio che i fan accettino di nuovo Scott. “Sto annullando la cancellazione”, ha detto. “L’amore riguarda il perdono… ecco perché per me era importante che Travis Scott si esibisse. Sarà una grande serata”.

Many fans expressed excitement that Scott is making a proper comeback after an indefinite hiatus, but come performance time, they also shared how they felt it was anticlimactic.

Fans expressed disappointment over Travis Scott's Billboard performance

Expectations were high for Travis Scott's first televised performance in what seemed like forever (at least for fans), but suffice to say, not everyone was happy with what they had witnessed. The rapper performed his new track, "Mafia," complete with an elaborate stage and backup dancers. But, following the performance, fans took to Twitter to share their dissatisfaction.

"Girl that performance was godawful...Travis need to go back into exile immediately lmaoooooo," one fan tweeted. "I don't know what that Travis Scott performance was. ?? The song didn't hit like I thought it would smh," noted another. Others also pointed out how the performance didn't appear as though it was performed live. "Why is Travis' performance looking pre recorded? This is dumb," a fan questioned. "Was he there? Seemed like a taped performance," observed another.

It may be too early to say if this performance signals Scott's official return to the spotlight, but in terms of making up for what happened at Astroworld, he launched the Project HEAL initiative in March. "Over the past few months I've been taking the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community," he wrote on Instagram. "Most importantly, I want to use my resources and platform moving forward towards actionable change." He added that the project was for creating "real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be." He also noted that he will "always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever."
