How Much Did Travis Scott Make From His Fortnite Concert?
While we'll never know what deals went down between Travis Scott and Epic Games, we can see that the collaboration was huge for both parties.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, Spotify listens for Scott rose by 25%, with some tracks rising by 50% ahead of the virtual concert.
The concert also premiered Scott's latest single, "The Scotts," with a feature from Kid Cudi. The Fortnite promotion seemed to have worked, as "The Scotts" took Spotifiy's biggest streaming debut of the year from Billie Eilish's "No Time to Die."
Fortnite took a massive boost, too. Over 12.3 million players logged on to see Astronomical, beating the Marshmello concert's previous 10 million concurrent players.
The success both parties experience is a testament to how Fortnite is still a major force in the gaming industry. There's even a special edition action figure of Travis Scott himself as he appears in the game to commemorate the event.
