Tyga’s latest project, Legendary, has been crafted to compliment any party or car journey, especially ones where you play the music extraordinarily loud.

Chris Brown simply had to be on Legendary & on it he is. February Love is the song I’m referring to and is my favourite on the album because of it’s addictive sample & smooth, familiar Chris Brown vocals.

Generally speaking, Tyga’s new album is a collection of bass driven, party anthems & they do have replay-ability. The songs are well written/versed with a defined sound & quality is of no question.

Legendary also features Lil Wayne, Offset, Swae Lee, Gunna, J Balvin & Boogie wit da Hoodie, so there’s plenty to pick from if you were wondering.

Goddamn is another song that caught my attention. Taste was recently released back in May and is featured on the project & without a doubt the song Haute is set for this year’s summer soundtrack.

All the songs on Legendary give me that ‘clean-cut’ feeling & not one feels overly cluttered. Tyga has come a long way since the days of Fan of a Fan with Chris Brown & he’s had more than enough time to mature/mold himself into the artist he wanted to be.

I’ve always found Tyga and his music uniquely different from the rest. Some people see/hear his music as rap/hip-hop, but I hear a mix of multiple genres combined. Sometimes it’s rap, other times it’s r’n’b & other times it’s dance, yet it’s that secret sprinkle of Tyga’s personality/input that separates his music from the rest.

I wasn’t overly keen on most of Tyga’s music since he went solo from the Chris Brown partnership & I always wondered whether he had had it in him to make it on his own, so to speak. He has certainly graced us with the odd viral song here and there, but it appeared there was no consistency. However, with the release of Legendary, that has/can now all change. Perhaps he’s found himself a producer/a collection of producers that give him that steady stream of songs/sounds he likes & now it’s all about keeping his writing/lyrics relative. Either way, Legendary is a good album with nearly every song receiving my nod of approval. I’m still keen to see where Tyga goes from here. Will he plateau? Or will he build from this & continue on an incline? Comment down below your thoughts on Tyga’s new album & where you see him in a year or two from now.
