MY FIRST NUMBER 1 ALBUM THIS MEANS ALOT TO ME ! U KIDS AND FANS ARE THE REALIST. I OWE YALL MORE THAN LIFE,” tweeted Travis to his 880,000 followers moments after the news broke. Out now on iTunes, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight will remain an Apple exclusive for one more week before being available on all streaming platforms and in stores.
