This is just the most recent star that Tyla has linked up with during 2020, also joining forces with Wiz Khalifa on the "High Right Now" remix that dropped in January. The music video for the "High Right Now" remix featured appearances from Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Big Sean, and Post Malone, among others.
Tyla teased "Tommy Lee" back in the middle of May when he released the cover art on Twitter.
Adding a deeper layer to the song, Tommy Lee, the founding member of Mötley Crüe that the song is named after, is also featured playing the drums on the track as well. Lee revealed that he was making the guest appearance while on VOLUME SiriusXM on Wednesday.
"It's basically, like, living that rockstar life," Lee said about what he felt the essence of the song was. He also said that he recorded his portion of the song live together with Post Malone rather than over Zoom.
This "rockstar" persona that Tommy Lee mentions in regards to Post Malone is also something that Tyla Yaweh prides himself on as having well, which is what makes this collaboration with Malone feel so seamless. Plus he's already performed with Post Malone before, as well as other genre-bending stars such as Jaden Smith, SAINt JHN, and others.
