"Girl do you wanna ride in my foreign?/We can turn up the radio/We ain't got no place to go," sings Ty Dolla Sign on the chorus of "In My Foreign." The breezy new track, from DJ collective The Americanos, brings together Ty, French Montana, and Lil Yachty for a song that's sure to be lighting up the radio all summer. Over a piano-laced beat that samples Chicago's "Saturday in the Park," Ty lays down a smooth chorus before allowing French and Yachty to do their thing on the verses. "In My Foreign" finds the crew embodying the spirit of summer, driving around, wasting time, and having a good time.
Although they all register solid contributions, Yachty is the real standout, crooning about girls and partying underneath some heavily distorted Auto-Tune. "Just me and you/Parked up at the top, looking at the view/So many things that we could do," he sings, channeling basically everyone's summer teenage years. He's been on a bit of a roll recently with the popularity of his song "1NIGHT," along with his appearances on songs with D.R.A.M., Chance the Rapper, Post Malone, and more. Clearly "In My Foreign" is yet another positive development in his buzzing career.
"In My Foreign" is the second big single from The Americanos, following the modest success of "BlackOut" with Lil Jon, Tyga, and Juicy J last year. The group consists of DJs Felli Fell, Lex Larson, and Louie Rubio.
The group have now come through with the official release of the track that also now features Nicky Jam. "The Americanos are family right there, so when they asked me to jump on this record, you already know it was a no-brainer. The beat was so wavy. That sample gives it those old-school L.A. feel good vibes," Ty said of the collaboration ina press release. "You got Dolla Sign, French, Lil Yachty & Nicky Jam all on one song? That’s a recipe for a smash. So much sauce."
xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE star and new song addition Nicky Jam also had some thoughts on linking up for the track. "I love being featured on the lead single 'In My Foreign' alongside my friends The Americanos, Ty, French and Yachty," he said over email. "I thank all my people for opening this new path in my life and in return I will give the best of me with effort and dedication, in this excellent experience that I enjoyed from beginning to end."
