• "Sicko Mode" (stylized in all caps) is a song by American rapper Travis Scott. It was released by Epic Records on August 21, 2018, as the second single from Scott's third studio album, Astroworld (2018). The song features additional vocals from Canadian musician Drake.
• Rolling Stone's Brendan Klinkenberg said "In fact, that last point — the idea of Scott as a curator, the title that Sickamore took umbrage with — shouldn’t be understood as a weakness at all. That’s clearer than ever on Astroworld, Scott’s third studio album, where he weaves together his sources in ways that transcend simple copy-and-pasting. Instrumentally, “Sicko Mode” is three songs in one, and Scott’s instincts are the reason he can pull it off. The backhanded compliment of “curator” is what makes this such a good song. “Sicko Mode” will be going off for the rest of the summer, an exceedingly rare achievement for a song that plays with its own momentum this much. It works because of Scott’s sense of balance, his blindingly confident ability to manage a song’s tone. Each movement of the song sounds distinct, but each hits the same emotional register with unnerving accuracy.
• Pitchfork.com said "The song is slow-moving at first, with Drake ad-libbing through the cinematic organ intro, teasing that something monumental is about to happen. But it doesn’t, cutting to the next beat before he even settles into a groove. This could have been another case of Travis doing too much, but the next instrumental is hard and funky, with a bounce that compensates for the jarring shift.
• "Sicko Mode" reached US Billboard Hot 100 No. 4 and US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (Billboard) no. 3 as of August 15, 2018.
