Ty Dolla $ign and J. Cole‘s “Purple Emoji” is here and fans are eating it up.
The MXXWLL produced track is an ode to a solid woman in your life as Ty serenades his lady while Cole gives props to his wife, Melissa.
“You know I need you, baby/So much on my mind I ain’t even really sleeping lately” Ty sings on the song. “I said some things I didn’t mean—I know I did too much/What’s love if we can’t get into it, turn around and make up?”
Meanwhile, for everyone who thought Cole would jump on the track with “civil rights” bars, he doesn’t even come close! “She pushed out a kid for me/When I’m gone, you hold down the crib for me,” Cole raps. “You know you wouldn’t last in no prison/You told me straight up you ain’t doing no bid for me!”
“I was at this studio called Jungle City in New York working on Yandhi with Kanye. I just took over the top room I had a whole separate room he had the bottom floors. And then just turns out Cole was in the room right next to me,” Ty revealed to Zane Lowe, who premiered the song on his Beats 1 show. “When I saw him, I was like, ‘Bro I got something to play you!’ and he’s like, ‘I got something to play to you!’ So I went to his studio and heard everything he was working on and then I’m like, ‘Yo I just did this one I thought would be crazy for both of us!’ So he came in my room I played it for him immediately and he did his verse in five minutes.”
