New Music: Ray J f/ Migos – ‘ATM’

ATM

After apologizing for his mistakes on “Never Shoulda Did That,” Ray J gets back to doing what he does best. The VH1 reality star, who released his mixtape Unkut 2 last month, talks dirty to the ladies on his ratchet club banger “ATM” featuring Migos.

“Got my legs open like an ATM / Cash in, cash out,” sings Dria, while Migos beats up the booty-clapping beat.

“We’re big fans of their music and they’ve been exploding on their own path and they’ve just built a crazy fan base,” Ray J told Rap-Up TV of the “Versace” trio. “The homies told me to get with ‘em and they was down, so it was just magic.”

The song is the first release off Ray J’s upcoming album, due on Fifth Amendment Entertainment/Knockout Entertainment/eOne Music.

Last month, he shot a video for the song and will star on VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,” premiering September 15.

Rap-Up TV: Ray J and Migos Cash Out in ‘ATM’ Video

Ray J took over the club on a Tuesday afternoon while shooting a video for his new single “ATM” featuring Migos. Rap-Up TV was on the scene as the VH1 reality star packed Sound Nightclub in Hollywood with some sexy ladies.

“The girl is saying she got her legs open like an ATM. Boom!” Ray J said of the raunchy club banger.

In the provocative clip, the head of his all-female security team ends up falling for him. “Hopefully her legs are open like an ATM by the end of the video and I can cash in and cash out,” he said.

He was also joined on set by the “Versace” trio. “We’re big fans of their music and they’ve been exploding on their own path and they’ve just built a crazy fan base,” said Ray J. “The homies told me to get with ‘em and they was down, so it was just magic.”

Migos returned the love, adding, “It was pleasure to lock in with my boy Ray J. He’s been doing this entertainment for a minute. We makin’ history.”

The song will appear on Ray J’s upcoming EP Ray J Unkut 2, which will also feature a ratchet record called “Never Should’ve Did That.”

He hopes to get back in the studio with his sister Brandy. “She called me and said she wanted to work on this project with me, so she’s flying in Friday,” he said. “God is good. Please God bless me to get back in with my sister and really get focused.”

Ray J Brings Out Kim Kardashian Look-alike on ’106 & Park’

Luba and Ray J

Ray J enlisted a Kim Kardashian look-alike for his controversial video for “I Hit It First.” During his appearance on “106 & Park” on Wednesday, the R&B singer brought his leading lady Luba with him.

The audience chanted, “Bring her out! Bring her out!” before she walked on set.

Bow Wow gave the model a hug, but when he went to ask Ray J about her striking similarity to his ex, Ray cut him off.

He wouldn’t say Kim’s name when asked who the song is about. “The song is about something I did. I try not to go so hard with the record ’cause it’s self-explanatory,” said Ray J. “There’s other relationships that I’ve been in too, just not as popular as others that I’ve dealt with.”

He insists that the single is not indicative of the rest of his album. “There’s records coming with a whole lotta more substance. We havin’ fun with this. It’s summertime, let’s live, let’s have fun.”
