The first megastar is going to be announced for the Abu Dhabi GP this week, and we’ve got a clue for you…

Now in its eleventh year, the 2019 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be returning to the iconic Yas Marina Circuit from November 28 to December 1. But for music fans, it’s the annual announcements of A-list musical artists at the after-race concerts that get pulses truly racing.

The first artist announcement for the eagerly-anticipated Yasalam after race concerts is coming tomorrow, but ahead of the big reveal, we’ve got a clue for you, to see if you can figure out who the artist might be.

The clue features three emojis; a cactus, an eagle, and a flame – which all seem to point to one star – Travis Scott.

Many eagle-eyed residents used the clue to predict that the first artist is rapper Travis Scott – who also goes by the names La Flame and Cactus Jack. Scott also released his Air Jordan 1 “Cactus Jack” limited-edition sneakers with Nike last year.

The eagle could refer to his previous shows, where he’s taken to the top of an eagle to perform.

Still not sure? Don’t worry as you don’t have long to wait. The artist announcement is due tomorrow – so stay tuned.

The mystery artist will be the first name to perform at this year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yasalam after race concerts. Last year saw The Weeknd, Sam Smith and  legendary rockers Guns n Roses perform.
