Ravyn Lenae Links With Ty Dolla $ign On New Song ‘Dream Girl’

Check it out now...

R&B voyager Ravyn Lenae enlists the help Ty Dolla $ign on new single ‘Dream Girl’.

Out now, the single is the latest preview from Ravyn Lenae’s incoming album ‘Bird’s Eye’. Out on August 9th, it’s her most complex and empathetic work to date, constructed alongside executive producer Dahi.

In a recent chat with theFader, Ravyn Lenae revealed that the two wanted to scrub out genre lines.  “If it ever became too R&B, it was like, ‘Oh, well, let’s make it more like this.’ That was the game we were playing.”

New song ‘Dream Girl’ contains what she calls “Prince drums” and there’s a certain directness to the track which feels urgent and intense. An example of her potent world-building, Ravyn is joined by rapper Ty Dolla $ign on the track.

Ty has leaned in on his feature status – joking about it publicly – but in truth, few do the job so effectively. Continually inventive, the R&B adjacent production brings out something different in his flows, a more rounded and melodic sound.

Ravyn Lenae will play London’s Brixton Electric on November 18th; catch her at Gorilla in Manchester on November 19th.
