Some may call it a random pairing, while others have dreamed for this collaboration for months. Ty Dolla $ign hops on Afrojack’s newest song titled “Gone“ and the two prove the collab was long overdue.
Although there is only one official month of summer left, that would never stop Afrojack from dropping some fun-spirited heat for us to jam to while we get in our last days of fun. The song makes you want to find a summer fling, impulsively hop on a plane and explore the wonders of the world. Consequently, the cover art displays a tropical silhouette of a lady, and the background alludes to passport stamps.
Afrojack has not been shy about wanting to work with the multi-talented singer/songwriter, Ty Dolla. In a recent interview, Afrojack said he feels Ty Dolla $ign is unique and he has wanted to work with him for a while. Since Afrojack had rightfully earned his place as one of the most popular DJ sensations in the world, it was only right for Ty Dolla $ign to jump on one of his masterpieces.
This song exemplifies the beauty of mixing talents and genres. Crossing boundaries and exploring new sounds is no new practice for music artists, but did this song prove Ty Dolla is one of those artists that can be fluid with his sound? If the feedback for this track is overwhelmingly positive, perhaps another EDM track is in his near future. Also, should Afrojack stick to recruiting more mainstream/pop sounding artists?
