Travi$ Scott’s Rodeo album listening party cum release bash was graced by Justin Bieber last night, when the superstar joined the rapper onstage at the Up & Down hot spot in New York City.
The 21-year-old is one of the artists featured on Scott’s debut album, which officially dropped on iTunes at midnight (September 4). Bieber and Young Thug guest on the turn up oddity “Maria I’m Drunk,” but it was the Canadian’s blistering-rap-delivered-but-sung verse that dominated hip hop music headlines and had the web talking when Rodeo leaked last week.

Illroots, who were at the NYC throwdown, said the audience went crazy when Travi$ took to the stage. As expected, the Texas rapper brought out Bieber as a special guest to perform “Maria I’m Drunk.” A flood of videos and pictures posted by party attendees at Up & Down reveal the duo also threw down on the Biebs’ fantastic new single “What Do You Mean?” and his Jack U collaboration, “Where Are U Now?”
Other famous names at the bash were Bieber’s pal, model Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, actor Jamie Foxx, and more.

After Rodeo leaked last Friday (August 28), the internet raved over Bieber’s verse, which has all added to the hype for the whole record. “Drunk” isn’t available to buy as a single and can only be bought with the regular album version or deluxe.
Online chatter reveals Bieber and Scott’s onstage hot team-up at the listening party went down a treat with the crowd.

For his part, Scott has a lot of good talk from peers supporting his debut album, amid high interest for his upcoming tour and guest dates on The Weeknd’s fall tour. Travi$ posted an Instagram of himself and the Biebs, which he captioned, “Mari[a]h I’m drunk,” and tagged to the singer.
Meanwhile, after his sit-down and performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and drop-in on Scott, the Biebs was snapped exiting Up & Down and later spotted taking selfies at LaGuardia Airport in New York City, New York, with the Mount Saint Mary College Women’s Soccer team.
