Ty Dolla $ign has released a new single “Ego Death” with Kanye West, Skrillex, and FKA Twigs.
The single references Ralphi Rosario’s club single “You Used to Hold Me” and nods to Ultra Naté’s “Free.”
In “Ego Death,” West raps about several topics including the Super Bowl, the Grammys, birth control, the struggles of Black musicians, and voting which can be seen in the lines, “All these halfway movements/ Need a lot of improvements…/Showin’ up to the Grammys mad/Tryin’ to win something we already had/Tryin’ to become something we already are.”
Ty Dolla $ign previously worked with West on West’s 2016 “Fade” which appeared on his album The Life of Pablo.
Ty Dolla $ign’s last album, Beach House 3 was released in 2017 and since then he’s made guest appearances, but hasn’t come out with much new music besides for 2018’s “MigTy” with Jeremih.
“‘Ego Death’ is a very special record. It’s always an honor working with my brother ‘Ye. He’s a genius and we make incredible records every single time we link up. Skrillex and Twigs came in and blessed us with the magic that only they can put on the record. I played it once at a house party and everyone went crazy. A clip leaked online and shit but that’s all good. I just had to find the right time to put it out, so I’m excited that it’s finally THAT TIME! My new album is done and it’s coming very soon. Shout to my fans for being patient while I made sure it was perfect, it’s worth the wait…it’s my best work yet. I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!,” the singer said in a statement..
