“I decided to name my third studio album Featuring Ty Dolla $ign because there is truly something for everybody on this album,” said Ty. “It features some of my most talented friends, on some of the best music I’ve made in my career.”

While recording the album, he listened to Prince and J Dilla for inspiration. “I listened to a lot of Prince. I listened to a lot of J Dilla,” he told the Los Angeles Times. “I listened to a lot of Jaco Pastorius. A lot of Thundercat, a lot of Skrillex. And my guy James Royo, who produced half of the album with me — just listening to his beats and my beats going back and forth.”
Ty continues to be one of hip-hop and R&B’s most consistent hitmakers, collaborating with artists including SZA (“Hit Different”), Big Sean (“Body Language”), Trey Songz (“On Call”), and YG (“Surgery”).
