Tyga Didn’t Plan To Make An Album, But Couldn’t Deny The Party Vibe Of "Legendary"


“Legendary” started out as just a few party singles until fans demanded an entire project.

His affiliation with the Kardashian-Jenners has made ‘s name synonymous with tabloid headlines. His romantic relationships have taken center stage as he’s and Blac Chyna. His financial dealings and rumored repossessions have made Tyga a focal point of punchlines and memes. No matter where he stands on the gossip circuit, it’s undeniable that Tyga knows how to make a hit.

The rapper has been teasing a possible project for over a year. It was May 2018 when he first dropped his -assisted single “Taste,” a track that found its way onto Legendary, the album he released Friday morning. However, according to Tyga, he didn’t have an album in mind when he started releasing songs. Earlier this week, the rapper sat down with Ryan Seacrest to discuss Legendary, saying, “I was just putting out singles, just putting out party vibes, and I was just recording as I went and people were like ‘We want an album! We want an album!’ So I was like it’s only right one year later, let me drop it for the summer.”

Legendary hass to assist Tyga including J Balvin, , , Swae Lee, , Blueface, and, of course, Tyga’s good friend and longtime collaborator, . “Chris [Brown], I’ve been friends with for like 10 years now [and] J Balvin, I’ve always been a fan of his so I kind of just reached out to him,” Tyga shared. “He was like,  man, congratulations! Your songs, like, let’s work!’ So I sent him…two songs…because I’ve never done a song with a Latin artist, like a collaboration like that, so I sent him another song that was more Latin and it actually didn’t make the album and he was like, ‘No, I want to get on the other one, man! That’s the party one! That’s the club one! I want to be in the club, man!’”

Tyga is known for his bangers that have lasted the tests of time, whether he’s flying solo or collaborating with other artists (“Rack City,” “Dip,” “Deuces,” “Bubble Butt,” “Loyal,” and “Go Loko,” just to name a few). If his goal was to create an album with a string of singles that will get people in a feel good, party-type mood then he’s succeeded.
