The Songs From Scratch Series has become an incredible outlet for diverse artists to team up when they normally wouldn't. Some of the series' best results have come from Tory Lanez & Snakehips, Mr. Carmack & Kehlani, as well as Fetty Wap & Bauuer. Once again the series surprises with an unexpected pairing of Ty Dolla $ign and HWLS (Ta-Ku's side project).
Their team effort called "Plays" has Ty Dolla singing soulfully, while HWLS lays down a dreamy beat that Ty meshes perfectly into. The song then takes a turn as Ty's vocals get distorted and HWLS takes the reigns. Overall, the two's synergy is immediately apparent as the electronic creation fitted with Ty's distinct vocals culminate into a unique sound unlike anything we'd ever anticipate.
Surprisingly, Ty Dolla $ign actually first expressed his respect for Australian beat-maker Ta-Ku way back in 2014. Then later Ty decided to do something about his admiration by, according to Ta-Ku himself, "sliding into his DMs." It sounds like the two have hit it off so who knows, maybe we'll hear more from them again soon! For now, enjoy "Plays."
