East meets west on Travis Scott and Kris Wu's new collaboration.
Kris Wu has established himself as a well rounded entertainer. While on this side of the hemisphere, he may be a new name, the singer established himself with Chinese-Korean boy band, Exo. Last year, he ended up embarking on his own solo venture and through the past several years, dabbled in acting as well. He has yet to fully emerge into the American market, other than a few appearances including "XXX: Return Of Xander Cage." Today, he's taking his musical talents over to the U.S. with his latest collaboration with Travis Scott on "Deserve."

Kris Wu got all of his fans excited recently when he announced that he had some work with Travis Scott on the way. It's an appropriate collaboration considering that Wu is a mega star in the eastern hemisphere while Travis Scott is a dominant force in the western music industry. The two of them connect on this club-ready joint. It's a solid middle ground between the two. They bring smooth, high energy to the table. The song was produced by Louis Bell who has produced for Post Malone, DJ Snake and ODESZA. He provides a solid backdrop for both Kris Wu and Travis Scott to find a middle ground with each other.

Kris Wu is making his way to become an international star in the near future. For those who aren't aware of him, now is the time to take notice. The singer is the second Chinese artist to reach the iTunes Top 50 on the U.S Charts. He's been on a steady stream of solo releases over the past few years so with his latest collaboration with Travis Scott, he's bound to really make a mark in the U.S. and Canada in the near future.

Literally how is he number one on US iTunes right now? :lol: :lol: :lol: Must be his Chinese fans changing their VPN address to buy the song.

The song bops a little bit even though this mumble rap trend needs to stop.
