Watch Ty Dolla $ign & Babyface (!) Jam In The “Solid” Video

Ty Dolla $ign is one of the most relevant artists in hip-hop right now, and that’s corroborated by the features on his debut album Free TC. It’s absolutely stacked: Kendrick Lamar, Future, Kanye West, Diddy, Fetty Wap and many more show up on the LP. Babyface, meanwhile, could not be less relevant at the moment. But there’s a good chance his music was playing when lots of you ’90s babies were conceived, so his impact is real. And Ty brought him in for “Solid,” and today (October 23) he premieres it with a video showing the two of them jamming on acoustic guitars.

That’s right, the purple rap&B is gone. Hell, even the percussion is gone. All we have here is a tight acoustic riff, a lightly throbbing bass groove and some strings at the end. It’s a curveball, but it isn’t too far removed from “FourFiveSeconds,” which Ty worked on with Rihanna, Kanye and Paul McCartney.

Hear the warm track below.

Free TC is out November 13.
