Ty Dolla Sign Links With Akon on “Rhythm of the Drum”
Ty Dolla $ign has only dropped music in spurts so far in 2016, but today he adds to the resume with the new Akon collab "Rhythm of the Drum."
The two singers hook up over an upbeat track that sounds radio ready. While Akon handles the chorus, TD$ belts out semi-raunchy lyrics like, "I been working all day, so you know a nigga hungry/Girl I wanna lick the icing off the cake, cake, cake, like your name was Rihanna/Yeah you got me on my bullshit, so you know a nigga horny/So baby let's fake like we're trying to make a baby, Blue Jay and Beyonce."
Dolla $ign recently revealed he will be dropping a deluxe version of his debut album Free TC in the coming weeks. “We got some new songs on there, some new slappers. And I can’t wait to play that for y’all," he said in an interview with The Know Show.
There's a good chance this Akon collab could wind up on that release. Or it could be for his sophomore LP which is already done. According to the Cali crooner, he has multiple album's worth of material in the stash. But he's not setting any dates for the release just yet. “A new album… I learned my lesson, man,” Sign explained referring to the numerous unfulfilled release dates on his debut. “I gave away so many dates for Free TC. Like, f-ck all that. I’m not giving no dates away until I have the master in my hand. So, no more of that. But I got three albums worth of music right now.”
