Ty Dolla $ign – “Drop That Kitty” (Feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe)

Ty Dolla $ign recruited Charli XCX and Tinashe -- two of the biggest up-and-comers in the game -- for his new single, "Drop That Kitty." It was produced by Stargate and Cashmere Cat, and will appear on his upcoming debut album, Free TC. Unfortunately, it's pretty lame. With all of the talent that's involved o… More »

Rihanna, Kanye West, & Paul McCartney – “FourFiveSeconds”

The collaboration between Rihanna, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney has arrived. It's called "FourFiveSeconds." Earlier this week, Kanye played the song for a bunch of radio programmers at the iHeartMedia Music Summit. It's unclear whether this song (which also features Kirby Lauryen, Mike Dean, Ty Dolla $ign, Dave Longstreth, Dallas Austin, Elon Rutberg, and… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) Video

It is rare you see an R&B crooner wear more chains than a rapper in a video, but Jeremih one-ups both Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana in the video for the remix of Jeremih's summer hit "Don't Tell 'Em." The video is a peek into the lavish life, set in a decadent mansio… More »

Kanye West – “Only One” (Feat. Paul McCartney)

You had to know this was coming. Just in time to ring in the new year, Kanye West drops a new song: a gentle AutoTuned ballad called "Only One." Paul McCartney is apparently on here, too, presumably on the organ that plays after Kanye implores, "Tell Nori about me." It's nothing like Yeezus -- naturally… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

Rich Homie Quan – “Blah Blah Blah (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Fabolous, & Dej Loaf)

Dequantes Lamar, better known by his stage name Rich Homie Quan, has had a busy year. Following collaborations with Travi$ Scott, Lil' Boosie, Young Thug, and several other rappers, Rich Homie Quan now remixes his own "Blah Blah Blah" adding Ty Dolla $ign, Fabolous, and Dej Loaf to the track. Rich Homie Quan's chorus, i… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “Stand For” Video

Along with DJ Dahi, Diplo co-produced "Stand For," the new single from Californian R&B weirdo-lothario Ty Dolla $ign. And the song's brand-new video has the sort of bugged-out surreal concept that one of Diplo's Major Lazer videos might have. The video takes place in a version of hardscrabble present-day L.A. reality, with the crucial… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “Stand For” (Prod. Diplo & DJ Dahi)

Back when Ty Dolla $ign released his $ign Language mixtape at the tail end of summer, word was his official debut album Free TC was soon to follow. Now it's looking more like the album won't be released until 2015, but Ty$ did release the project's excellent first single today. "Stand For" is a… More »

Jeezy – “Link Up” (Feat. Beenie Man & Ty Dolla $ign) (Prod. DJ Mustard)

Jeezy is the guy who signed YG, so it would've made sense if he'd gone in on the glittering, minimal DJ Mustard tracks on his last album Seen It All. Instead, Jeezy stuck with the thundering Atlanta churn that brought him into the game, and he sold a whole pile of records in the process. More »

The Weeknd – “King Of The Fall (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & Belly)

The Weeknd hasn't released anything other than a handful of spare songs this year, and yet his star continues to grow; he filled arenas on both coasts earlier this year. And after dropping his "Often" remix, with Schoolboy Q and Rick Ross, he's got a new version of his song "King Of TheMore »

Watch Common, Vince Staples, & Jay Electronica Pay Tribute To Mike Brown At The BET Hip-Hop Awards

Last night, BET held its annual Hip-Hop Awards show, broadcasting from Atlanta with Snoop Dogg hosting. As usual, the big news items weren't the actual awards -- nobody really cares who won what -- but the performances. In the night's most dramatic moment, Common, Vince Staples, and Jay Electronica performed a remix of Common's track… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) + “Fuck You All The Time (Remix)” Video

Jeremih's Snap!-interpolating illicit sex jam "Don't Tell 'Em" is significant for multiple reasons. For one thing, it's one of the Chicago R&B singer's biggest hits to date, ruling R&B radio, nearing the top 10 of the pop singles chart, and helping to put the novelty curio "Birthday Sex" (still his highest-charting song) further i… More »

Download Ty Dolla $ign’s $ign Language Mixtape

Ty Dolla $ign's debut album Free TC is due later this year, and today he teased it with the free $ign Language mixtape. The Big Sean collab that opens the tape reminds me of one of Drake's more laid-back Take Care-era tracks, which Ty$ (and especially Sean) should consider high praise. From there things ram… More »

The Week In Pop: Shawn Mendes, TerRio, And Vine’s Six-Second Stars

Whether busking, mailing out demo tapes, or uploading to MySpace or YouTube, conventional wisdom says you have less than one minute to catch the attention of music industry execs. Shawn Mendes did it in six seconds. The 15-year-old Toronto pop singer made his name on Vine, Google's quick-hit video service, riding looped snippets of… More »

Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign – “Shell Shocked” (Feat. Kill The Noise & Madsonik) Video

Next month 2007 MTV Movie Award winner Michael Bay revives the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and last week we heard the movie's theme "Shell Shocked," a rap song by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign about nunchucks, pizza, and living in an abandoned subway station.

Well Someone Had To Record The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Theme

If you're old enough, you may well remember paying actual money for the soundtrack album from the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, possibly on cassette, possibly at a K-Mart. You may even remember what a jam MC Hammer's "This Is What We Do" was. (Just speaking hypothetically.) That lost era, when movies would include… More »

The Week In Pop: Bleachers, The Solo Project Of Fun.’s Jack Antonoff, Is Really Good

Things we learned about Jack Antonoff -- Fun. guitarist, former Steel Train ringleader, Lena Dunham boyfriend, and, lately, Bleachers mastermind -- in Vulture's great profile last week: He lived with his parents in New Jersey until age 28, when Fun.'s "We Are Young" made them superstars. His Fun. bandmates lived there for a while… More »
