Astroworld's title is a reference to the now-defunct theme park, Six Flags AstroWorld, situated in Houston, Texas. Being a Houston native, Travis Scott aimed to create an album that would feel like "taking an amusement park away from kids." Furthermore, he described it as an extension of his debut album, Rodeo, released in 2015.

The album offers a blend of hip hop and psychedelic rap, incorporating elements of trap and psychedelic music. Astroworld is supported by four hit singles: "Butterfly Effect," "Sicko Mode," "Yosemite," and "Wake Up."

Astroworld received widespread critical acclaim and became a commercial success, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200 with 537,000 album-equivalent units, of which 270,000 were pure sales. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the album triple platinum. In addition, it won Album of the Year at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards.
