Cardo Reveals the Five Artists Who Were Sent Travis Scott's "goosebumps" Beat

Cardo sent the beat that would become "goosebumps" to five other star artists.

Over the weekend, a PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih collaboration entitled "Don't Tell Me" over Travis Scott's Cardo-produced "goosebumps" beat surfaced online.

With a different title, different lyrics and absolutely zero connection to Travis' Platinum-selling single featuring Kendrick Lamar from 2016's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, the internet naturally began to speculate. Was this version a demo? Is it a freestyled remix? Did PND and/or Jeremih have the beat before Travis Scott recorded and eventually released "goosebumps"?

For answers, we went straight to the source.

Montreal band TOPS brings the party inward on their new EP, 'Empty Seats.' Frontwoman Jane Penny breaks down their process for Audiomack World.

"Only three to four people had that beat," Cardo told us via text. "That was Drake, ScHoolboy Q, Future—don't know if he ever got it—Rihanna and I sent it to Young Thug as well."

Given that Cardo sent the beat to Drake and PND is Drake's artist and an OVO labelmate, Drake could have easily shared the beat with PND or given him access to it. Either way, we now know it's not a demo for "goosebumps" and it's certainly not a sanctioned release.
