With a third studio album on the way, Ty Dolla $ign has tapped Jhene Aiko and Mustard to collaborate on his latest single, “By Yourself.” The record will be listed on Featuring Ty Dolla $ign which is set for release on October 23rd.
“One of my favorite parts of making this album was getting back in with my brother Mustard and just making hits after hits, like we’ve been doing for the last decade,” the singer and rapper said in a statement. “The song needed the frequency of a strong woman, so I had to call my sis Jhené who came in and killed it like only she can do. ‘By Yourself’ is an ode to all the amazing women, especially all the single women and the single mothers, who do this thing called life on their own. Especially now more than ever. Ladies, if you’re handling your responsibilities by yourself, just know we see you and appreciate you.”
In a recent interview, the award winning singer/rapper also shared the thought process behind the albums name and how it came together saying, “I’ve been blessed with the gift of collaborating,” he said. “Not every artist can collaborate with another artist and have the final product be something incredible. Many people have said that when you see a song that says, ‘featuring Ty Dolla Sign,’ you know it’s gonna be fire. As humbled as I am when I hear that, I can’t say I disagree.”
“I decided to name my third studio album ‘Featuring Ty Dolla Sign’ because there is truly something for everybody on this album. It features some of my most talented friends, on some of the best music I’ve made in my career.”
Earlier this week, Ty Dolla $ign appeared at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards with Brandy, performing “No Tomorrow” from her latest album B7. He also was announced as a performer for the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards, where he is nominated for Best Collaboration for “Hot Girl Summer” with Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj.
