The Weeknd and Ty Dolla $ign are two very different breeds of sex-obsessed R&B weirdo. The Weeknd has perfected the “lonely, wounded lothario” persona; he sounds like he’s also hurting himself when he’s compulsively hurting girls’ feelings. Ty Dolla $ign, by contrast, is a giddy, over-the-top hornball, always hunting for a slightly catchier and more outrageous thing to coo. (They both have absolutely lovely voices, though.) Against odds, the two have found common ground, coming together on a new remix of Ty$’s Wiz Khalifa/DJ Mustard collab “Or Nah.” The original already sounded halfway like something from the Drive soundtrack, so it’s not that much of a musical stretch for Abel Tesfaye, but it’s still pretty hilarious to hear him offering to stretch your pussy out and sounding so sincere while doing it.
Ty$’s Beach House EP is out now on Atlantic.
