Nearly one month after teasing a singing album, Tyga decides to “Boss Up” with the release of his newest single.
Over an atmospheric instrumental, T-Raww harmonizes about his new lady friend with a Kendrick Lamar-inspired slant. “I love it when you boss up, call the shots,” he sings, “when you tell me come through, I pull up, hop out.”
Some of the song’s inspiration might come from K-Dot’s “ELEMENT.,” but King Gold Chains also pulls from Lil’ Troy’s classic “Wanna Be a Baller.” “Tell that boy that you need a better offer,” he sings. “If you wanna be a baller, shot caller, 20-inch blades on that Ferrara.”
Tyga previewed the cut on Instagram last month, and teased a singing album as well. “Y’all think I’m playing,” he tweeted. “that singing album coming soon.”
