On “YOSEMITE,” Travis Scott collaborates with Gunna and NAV for a slow-moving track. On the song, Gunna delivers an effortlessly smooth chorus over signature guitar-driven production by Gunna’s frequent producer Turbo. Travis matches Gunna’s free flowing cadence on the verse as they both create an ode to their extravagant lives full of jewelry, private jets and designer clothes.
The track’s title is in reference to Yosemite National Park, a scenic nature park located in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Additionally, this track seems to be somewhat of a spiritual successor to Gunna’s April 2018 hit single “Sold Out Dates”. At the beginning of the verse, Travis seems to be mimicking the flow on Gunna’s verse in “Sold Out Dates“, and Gunna’s chorus seems to be a homage to his cadence on that song.
The song also gained attention due to NAV’s outro, which was originally much quieter than Travis' or Gunna’s vocals. On August 11, 2018, a better mix, where NAV’s vocals were turned up, were added to streaming sites, replacing the old version. Many memes and jokes were made, based around his vocal mix, with NAV acknowledging the meme itself in a now-deleted post.
The music video for this track, starring Travis and Gunna, as well as Travis as a child, debuted on November 30, 2018. This video showed the the adult Travis and Gunna in a plane that says ASTROWORLD, watching the child Travis exploring a jungle, looking for ASTROWORLD. NAV, however, wasn’t featured in the video.
