Ty Dolla $ign reels back his usual performance style and antics for a barebones rendition of “Solid.” Performed live for Entertainment Weekly, the performance almost recalls T-Pain’s acclaimed Auto-Tune-less showcase for NPR. Further breaking down the song for EW, Ty Dolla $ign divulges that the song was a piece he had to compose without his inspiration of choice, weed, per a demand from its collaborator Babyface.
