After linking with Kanye West, the L.A. hitmaker teams up with Nicki Minaj on his new single “Expensive.” On the flashy banger, Ty shares his love for the finer things, while the Queen flexes on her pricey verse. “Tom Ford heels with the locket / A ni**a get me, he better lock it,” Mrs. Petty raps.
Along with the song, he has debuted a lavish video. A fashionable Ty caters to his girl (played by his real-life girlfriend Zalia) and her expensive taste at his lavish house in the hills, while a pregnant Nicki makes a cameo from the waist up.
“‘Expensive’ is all about showing your girl that she deserves only the finest things in life,” Ty explained. “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” is the latest offering from Ty’s upcoming third album, Dream House. Last month, he dropped his single “Ego Death” featuring Kanye West, FKA Twigs, and Skrillex.
“My new album is done and it’s coming very soon,” he said of the follow-up to 2017’s Beach House 3. “Shout to my fans for being patient while I made sure it was perfect, it’s worth the wait…it’s my best work yet. I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!”
