The track arrives alongside a Romain Laurent-directed video that features both Ty and Minaj. Watch that below:
“‘Expensive’ is all about showing your girl that she deserves only the finest things in life,” commented Ty in a press release.
“I wanted to put a female on the song and Nicki was the only voice I could hear on it. So when I sent her the record and she sent her verse right back, I knew we had a hit on our hands. Love to the Queen for blessing this song with another iconic verse!”
The single was teased earlier this week along with the cover art for the track.
Prior to ‘Expensive’, Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj last teamed up to feature on Megan Thee Stallion’s track ‘Hot Girl Summer’. This year alone, Ty has also collaborated with Lil Yachty and Sueco the Child, 24hrs, dvsn and Buju Banton, Mahalia and Jacob Collier, and, most recently, Kanye West, FKA Twigs, serpentwithfeet and Skrillex for ‘Ego Death‘.
Ty Dolla $ign’s latest solo full-release was his 2017 album ‘Beach House 3’. Upon its release, NME gave the 20-track album a three-star review, saying the “mixtape has its moments, but doesn’t quite reach its potential”. Since then, he’s gone on to release a joint album with Jeremih, titled ‘MihTy’.
