Ty Dolla $ign has kept his Beach House 3 rollout consistent, teasing fans with a stream of new releases over the past few weeks. On Friday (Oct. 6), Dolla $ign doled out another track off his upcoming album titled “Ex” featuring fellow west coast rhymer YG.
From the offset, Dolla $ign salutes Donell Jones’ 90s hit “Where I Wanna Be” as he sings “I just text my main chick/ I told her I ain’t coming home/ I just text my main chick/ I told her I ain’t coming home, tonight.” Dolla $ign continues to pay homage to enduring R&B classics as he sings over the Bongo By The Way-produced beat, which samples the classic Bad Boy remix of 112’s 1996 hit “Only You.” Dolla keeps the ’90s flavor intact by later shouting out R. Kelly’s 1993 album 12 Play.
“Riding ’round with it on me/ Got me thinking about all my old days/ I been getting money four ways,” he croons. “R. Kelly, “12 Play” with the foreplay/ I know I be up to no good/ Baby, I know I’m just misunderstood.”
YG chimes in later on and raps about enjoying the single life with “naked” women on jet skis and subtly nods to Usher’s “U Got It Bad.”
“Leave your main squeeze for these naked bitches, yeah/ That’s how, you know, when it’s all bad / She call me, I text her I could call back/ But she imagine in her head I’m doing all that,” YG raps.
Dolla $ign recently released the visual for “Dawsin’s Breek” featuring Jeremih and The-Dream and Lil Wayne-assisted “Love U Better.” Beach House 3 is slated to be released on Oct. 27.
