The popular hip-hop star, Tyga, recently posted an update on his musical activities and even gifted his fans with a teaser of some upcoming music. In a new Instagram post, the rapper, Micheal Ray Stevenson, who chose his name Tyga as an acronym for “Thank You God Always”, showed fans that he was still working hard in the studio and had actually just finished a brand-new track. While showing off the sneak preview for the unreleased song, the ‘Taste’ singer, who was sitting next to a mixing console, asked his fans, “Just recorded this. Who I should put on it?! TAG THEM.” This prompted a flurry of fan requests for potential guest features, as fans started reeling off a who’s who of hip-hop stars, all of whom were certainly eligible to make the cut.
The star-studded list of fan-requested collaborations included Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Chris Brown, Drake, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Camila Cabello, Iggy Azalea, Offset, Roddy Rich, DaBaby, Lil Baby, City Girls and plenty more popular artistes. The song that Tyga previewed sounded like a good-old-fashioned “banger”, according to thrilled fans, with blaring horns and booming beats. What’s more, the vast majority of the comments section said that Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Chris Brown or Lil Wayne would definitely do justice to the new track. The brand-new single starts off with Tyga rapping, “1-2 racks, I’mma blow that / 3-4-5 I’mma hold that / 6-7-8 I’mma show that / 9-10 racks, I’mma throw that.” The infectious groove for the new club anthem then kicks in, as Tyga continues, “Hey, bounce that ass yeah, throw it back / Spin that cash, you got hella racks.”
This is the first taste of new music the public has gotten from Tyga since the rapper released the music video for his catchy and sax-heavy ‘Ibiza’ single last month. His last studio album, ‘Legendary’, was released a year ago in June 2019, so the time is certainly ripe for a new album and a guest feature or two. Judging by the comments section, Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown are the frontrunners for the guest vocal spot, and since Tyga has collaborated with both artistes in the past, this should be easy enough to hook up.
Tyga has worked with the rap queen Nicki Minaj on songs like ‘Senile’ (2014) and ‘Dip’ from last year, and Chris Brown is famously known to be one of Tyga’s good friends. The successful duo has appeared in numerous collaborative projects together, from ‘Holla At Me’ and ‘Ayo’ in previous years all the way to ‘Haute’ and ‘Light It Up’ in 2019. So let’s wait and see who the braided singer has in mind for his latest upcoming project – it might not be one of the more obvious choices on the list!
