Label: Taylor Gang, Atlantic
Ty Dolla $ign introduced himself to America with the words, “Two of my bitches in the club, and I think they know about each other.” It’s smooth, unapologetic and—most importantly—really, um, sexy. It’s a hit, due in no small part to him working the song so hard, “Paranoid” was first just an Internet release; then it got placed on DJ Mustard’s album Ketchup, then thrown on Beach House 2, and finally has landed on the seven-song Beach House EP (where it’s sequenced next to its new remix, featuring Trey Songz and French Montana).
So, they’re banking on you still loving the song—which you will. But maybe they switch the beat up for the remix? Because that’d be a lot of “Paranoid.” As for what’s to come, “Or Nah” featuring Taylor Gang labelmate Wiz Khalifa seems to be the next single; a quick search reveals a Vine from the video shoot, where two curvy white girls pose in not much. It’s unclear what Ty Dolla’s relation is to those girls, but they seem to know about each other. —Jeff Rosenthal
