2020 gets even wilder with the release of the somewhat unlikely collaboration between Ty Dolla $ign, Kanye West, Skrillex, & FKA twigs, "Ego Death"

While speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Ty Dolla $ign explained how “Ego Death” came together…

"Basically, I was at a party, and I don’t remember. I heard some girls saying something about some guy, like, “Oh, that’s the death of his ego.” I remembered that when I got to the house. I’m like, “Wow, that’s hard.” It’s like I had the song Ego Death, and then I made the beat."

"Then I was watching Instagram, and there was some video of Ye walking through Chicago. Then he was like, “Hold up. There’s a train going by.” I thought that was so hard, just seeing him just walking through Chicago by himself. So I sampled that part, and then I went out to Chicago to work on Yandhi with him. Then I played him the record, and he went crazy. Everybody in the room ran out, like, “Oh, shit.” So he came back. He grabbed the little performance mic, and he started beatboxing and just freestyling and shit."

The track sounds like a natural chart hopper, and we wouldn't be surprised if you start hearing it at clubs and festivals all over.
