Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum modern hip-hop icon Tyga unleashes a new single entitled “Freak” [feat. Megan Thee Stallion]. This marks the very first collaboration between the Los Angeles MC and Houston’s red-hot queen of hip-hop. On the track, Tyga serves up his slick signature bars before an immediately hashtaggable and hypnotic hook. Meanwhile, Megan makes a stunning cameo with explosive attitude and star-power fully on display. Additionally, they team up in the sexy and cinematic music video, projecting the song’s energy widescreen.
“Freak” arrives hot on the heels of Tyga’s smash “Ayy Macarena.” Totaling nearly a-quarter-of-a-billion streams and counting, he recently dropped the remix featuring Latin superstar Ozuna. About this version, Billboard wrote, “Ozuna’s 30-second rap verse is about a man who makes the ladies swoon with his luxurious lifestyle.” The animated clip already cracked 3 million views and counting.

As a rapper, entrepreneur, and influential force, Tyga maintains his place at the forefront of hip-hop and the culture. Since emerging in 2008, his influence consistently grew year after year to affect nearly every facet of the mainstream. Throughout his career, he earned dozens of multiplatinum certifications around the world, including the quadruple-platinum “Rack City,” triple-platinum “Faded,” and double-platinum “Ayo” with Chris Brown, to name a few. In 2018, he turned up with his most successful single to date “Taste” [feat. Offset]. Not only did it go six-times platinum and clinch #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it generated over 1 billion cumulative streams. It also paved the way for his 2019 opus, Legendary, released via his own Last Kings Records / Empire Distribution. Legendary crashed the Top 20 on the Top 200 chart, scored a gold certification release week, and accumulated 5 billion streams in under a year. Tyga perennially holds a place in the Top 30 of the “Most Streamed Artists on Spotify.” His influence continues to grow with each subsequent album.
