“The Light,” the lead single from R&B crooners Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih’s upcoming joint project MihTy, is finally here. The pair joined forces for a summer-ready banger that unabashedly addresses what they’re looking for in an intimate partner.
Following the introduction of the funky Hitmaka-produced beat, the first lyrics uttered are “Let’s have sex/ But not without the foreplay.” After Ty Dolla $ign keeps it real, he passes the baton off to Jeremih who uses his velvety vocals to express his desires throughout the bridge and chorus.
The track also induces nostalgia, as Jeremih alludes to Ahmad’s 1994 classic “Back in the Day” in his verse. “Back in the day, when I was young/ I’m not a kid anymore/ But these days, I’m thinking maybe we should fuck again,” he sings.
Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih have previously teamed up on tracks by Zaytoven and Kanye West. While there’s no official release date for MihTy yet, Dolla $ign revealed in a Zane Lowe interview that the project is expected to drop in June.
