At the beginning of this month, Tyga linked up with YG and Blueface for the “Bop” video. Now, for the official deluxe version of his latest studio album Legendary, Tyga teams up with Ty Dolla $ign and Migos superstar Takeoff for a high-profile new collaborative cut known as “Slidin.”
“My music isn’t even trap, which is weird because strip club culture is really only big in in the South,” Tyga explained to Billboard earlier this year, opening up about the global appeal of records like “Slidin.” “when you go to Australia and Asia, it’s different. But these people love [the music]. I think it’s just the way it makes you want to dance, you know what I’m saying? It takes you outside of whatever problem that you’re dealing with. You just want to have a good time with your friends.”
“If it sounds good, you gotta go with it,” Tyga adds, sharing some insight into his approach to making and releasing music. “Everything is about timing. Sometimes music [trends] will be slow and more melodic, or go more island-sounding. You just gotta navigate within it. Like right now, Latin and K-pop is really huge, but hip-hop will still always be number one with me ’cause it’s so cultural — it’s what makes music cool. We’re the trendsetters. So whatever we do, people always will want to be a part of it.”
