After running the feature game in 2018, Ty Dolla $ign is ready to get back to music of his own as he releases his new single, “Purple Emoji” with J. Cole.
As Ty $ premiered the single on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show he explained how the collaboration came to be. “I just took over the top room I had a whole separate room he (Kanye West) had the bottom floors. And then just turns out Cole was in the room right next to me. When I saw him I was like bro ‘I got something to play you’ and he’s like ‘I got something to play to you’ so I went to his studio and heard everything he was working on and then I’m like ‘I just did this one I thought would be crazy for both of us,’ so he came in my room, I played it for him immediately and he did his verse in five minutes.”
Listen to the new single below, produced by MXXWLL.
A week after releasing the audio, Ty $ returns with the visuals to match. Watch the Olivia Rose-directed clip below.
