Next week we’ll see if Ty Dolla $ign can synthesize his talents to make a great debut album. Free TC‘s previous tracks suggests he will, and “LA” again proves the hype hasn’t been misplaced. The album-opener debuted on Real 92.3.
“LA” is a switch-up from the party jams (“Blasé,” “Saved”) we’ve heard over the past few months. This one’s bluesy: Ty Dolla $ign enlists Kendrick Lamar, Brandy and James Fauntleroy for a melancholic ode that focuses on the city’s pains and the pride they instill. It’s a song that makes the eight-day wait feel longer.
