Travis Mills is a jack of all trades. While you may hear his voice on-air at Beats 1 Apple Music interviewing all the biggest names in the industry, he’s also an all-star producer and artist. In fact, he also produced YK Osiris’ standout single “Worth It,” which hails over 57 million views on Youtube alone. Sitting down at the station for an exclusive interview with Felli Fel, Travis reveals how he taught himself how to make beats.
Off the rip, Travis states, “If you would have told me at 30 years old I’d be getting double-Platinum singles, it’s crazy. It’s something I really started two years ago. The whole story behind that is I was at home making music with my friends. I sent this off to Kiwi, he put drums to it, and he got it to YK, and we got one!”
Travis also reveals producing and songwriting for artists like Paris, who went on tour with Post Malone. He deems them “sound gardens he can dip his foot into.” When it comes to his own brand, he explains: “I can put things together and make it sound really cool. But if it doesn’t fit my brand, my identity, or my message, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea — it’s just not for me.”
Next, Felli asks him about his new show on MTV titled Ghosted: Love Gone Missing. He begins, “By the way, I thought it was fake!” Explaining the show, Travis states, “Season 1, we’re pretty much taking this epidemic across the country and shining light on this thing called ghosting. I know I’ve personally ghosted people before, I’ve been ghosted. It’s when you have a relationship with someone, doesn’t have to romantic at all. I’ve been ghosted by best friends, family members. You wake up one day & the conversation just stops.”
The point of the show is to get people to come face to face with the people they ghosted, IRL! In fact, Travis admits to even shedding tears during. Watch above as he tells an epic story of ghosting a girl from Canada he met in Vegas, with a tattoo on his palm to show for it.
