Ty Dolla $ign Wants You to "Drop That Kitty"; Stargate & Cashmere Cat-Produced Single Heralds Highly Anticipated Debut Album Slated for Late Spring Release; Recently Announced as Part of MTV's "Artist to Watch 2015" Line Up; "Drop That Kitty (feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe)" Available at All DSPs Now

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Feb 17, 2015) - Atlantic recording artist Ty Dolla $ign has released his hugely anticipated new single, "Drop That Kitty (feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe)," which is available at all DSPs today: http://smarturl.it/DropThatKitty & streaming here: http://smarturl.it/StreamDropThatKitty. Produced by hit makers Stargate and Cashmere Cat, "Drop That Kitty (feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe)" heralds the release of Ty's long awaited debut album, slated to arrive later this Spring.

The track's companion clip -- directed by Shomi Patwary -- was shot earlier this month in Los Angeles and will premiere in the coming weeks. The sure-to-be smash single is the follow up to the L.A.-native's previously released single, "Stand For," produced by Diplo and DJ Dahi. The video for "Stand For" has already amassed more than 4 million views (http://youtu.be/jeWYdbi5CbM.) Recently featured on the covers of Fader, The Source and XXL's "Freshmen 2014" issue, Ty just returned from a multi-city tour of Australia and New Zealand alongside his longtime friend and collaborator YG.

Last month, Ty was announced as one of the artists included in MTV's "Artist To Watch" line up for 2015, joining the likes of Rae Sremmurd, FKA Twigs, Hoodie Allen, Shawn Mendes, Raury and more. The yearlong campaign features 11 of music's rising stars, with promotion across the network's TV, online, social media and mobile platforms.

Ty made a splash in 2014 after the release of his critically acclaimed, RIAA gold-certified major label debut "BEACH HOUSE EP," which spawned 2 gold certified singles with "Paranoid (feat. B.o.B)" and "Or Nah (feat. Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard)," the latter proving to be an undeniable summer smash, with the remix featuring The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa and DJ Mustard.

A gifted singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Ty has become one of hip-hop's most in demand collaborators. Recent highlights include "Dead Wrong (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)," featured on Trey Songz's recent #1 album, "TRIGGA," as well as a trio of tracks on Wiz Khalifa's Grammy-nominated third studio album, "BLACC HOLLYWOOD." As if all this weren't enough, Ty has lent his vocals to tracks from artists ranging from Chris Brown, Tyga, Meek Mill, Lupe Fiasco, 2 Chainz, and Wale, while most recently contributing his acclaimed production and writing skills to Kanye West's "Only One (with Paul McCartney)" & Rihanna's "FourFiveSeconds (with Kanye West and Paul McCartney)."

Born Tyrone Griffin Jr., Ty Dolla $ign has been an in-demand writer, producer, and featured artist since helming YG's 2010 smash, "Toot It and Boot It (feat. Ty Dolla $ign)." Since then, his credits include Chris Brown's top 10 hit, "Loyal," as well as work with Trey Songz ("Fumble"), B.o.B ("HeadBand (feat. 2 Chainz)"), and Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg, whose "Young, Wild & Free (feat. Bruno Mars)" proved a GRAMMY® Award-nominated blockbuster. The music from Ty's production team, D.R.U.G.S. (Dirty Rotten Underground Sound), dominated the airwaves in 2013. This new era of L.A.-bred producers and musicians -- which also includes DJ Mustard, Nate3D, Chordz and James Koo -- has redefined the sound of West Coast hip-hop with heavy 808s and a greedy snap. A series of increasingly hot mixtapes earned further attention, leading Rolling Stone to call Ty one of the "10 New Artists You Need To Know in 2014."
