(Complex) – Ty Dolla Sign and Nicki Minaj reunite on the former’s latest single “Expensive.”
The track and accompanying visual arrived Thursday night, months after Ty teased Nicki’s verse on Instagram Live.
“‘Expensive’ is all about showing your girl that she deserves only the finest things in life,” Ty said in a press release for the track. “I wanted to put a female on the song and Nicki was the only voice I could hear on it. So when I sent her the record and she sent her verse right back, I knew we had a hit on our hands. Love to the Queen for blessing this song with another iconic verse!”
“Expensive” marks Ty’s third collaboration with Nicki, following “Swalla” with Jason Derulo and “Hot Girl Summer” with Megan Thee Stallion. It also arrives nearly two months after Ty delivered his star-studded track “Ego Death” with contributions from Kanye West, Skrillex, FKA twigs, and serpentwithfeet. When announcing the track, Ty reassured fans his third solo album—the follow-up to 2017’s Beach House 3—was right around the corner.
