On “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM,” Travis discusses his relationship with his now ex-girlfriend and mother of his child – Kylie Jenner – and his self-proclaimed title as the most intoxicated person in the place he is in.
This song was first teased by Kylie on April 22, 2019, when it featured in an advertisement for her Kybrows cosmetic product. Following this, on May 3, 2019, Travis performed a portion of the song during his headlining set at JMBLYA 2019, and then again a week later, during his set at Rolling Loud Miami.
In late June 2019, Travis performed a large portion of the track, during his Morocco performance and on August 31, 2019, he previewed Lil Baby’s verse during a live show.
On September 30, 2019, Travis revealed the single’s final release date and cover art in an Instagram post. Coincidentally, two days before the scheduled release of “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” Travis and Kylie reportedly called it quits on their relationship.
The song was officially released on October 4th, 2019, along with accompanying visuals. However, the final version did not include the teased Lil Baby feature, leading many to believe that he was taken off prior to its release.
