"Antidote" is a song by American rapper Travis Scott. It was released on July 28, 2015, as the second single from his debut studio album, Rodeo (2015). The song was produced by WondaGurl and Eestbound. The song peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Since then it has been certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Background[edit]

The song was first heard when Travis Scott performed it live at JMBLYA.[1] It was later released on June 21, 2015. "Antidote" was not initially intended to appear on Rodeo, as confirmed on Scott's SoundCloud on June 23, 2015: "This is for the real fans; the real ragers! This is some vibes for the summer. This isn’t on Rodeo… it’s coming soon." However, due to the song's popularity, Scott included the track on his debut album. On July 29, 2015, "Antidote" was released via digital distribution as the album's second single. The song samples "All I Need" by Lee Fields and The Expressions.

Music video[edit]

On September 3, 2015, a teaser for the "Antidote" music video was uploaded on Scott's Vevo channel.[2] The video premiered on September 18, 2015.[3] The music video features Dominican models Yaris Sanchez and Ayisha Diaz.
