Desiigner dropped his highly anticipated single “Tiimmy Turner” on Thursday (July 21) from his debut mixtape New English.
Fans first heard a taste of “Tiimmy Turner” in the rapper’s 2016 XXL Freshman freestyle, which has gained more than 7 million views and left listeners wanting more.
The single’s title, “Tiimmy Turner,” is reportedly in reference to the character Timmy Turner from the Nickelodeon animated series Fairly OddParents. Desiigner teased fans on Twitter prior to the release, asking, “WHO REALLY WANTS TIIMMY TURNER TO DROP?”
