Listen to The Weeknd and Ty Dolla Sign’s New Songs With Cashmere Cat
Twenty-nine-year-old Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat releases his debut album, 9, today (April 28). The project features guest appearances from Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, Francis and the Lights, Ty Dolla $ign, Selena Gomez, Tory Lanez, and Camila Cabello.
The album is lead by the singles “Trust Nobody” featuring Gomez and Lanez, the Abel-assisted “Wild Love" and "9 (After Coachella)" featuring MØ and SOPHIE. 9 follows up Cat’s series of EPs, including 2014’s Wedding Bells, 2013’s Mirror Maru Remix EP and 2012’s Mirror Maru.
For "Wild Love," Cashmere, whose real name is Magnus August Høiberg, has The Weeknd and Francis and the Lights basically crooning about love. They song has very little words but is an incredible listen. "It's a wild love when I love you, love," sings the Toronto native.
On "Infinite Stripes," Ty Dolla $ign sings to a woman that's seeing someone else. "Sorry things ain't working out for you and that nigga/Girl I'm tired of talking to you now about you and that nigga/They think I've been thinkin' out loud 'bout you and that nigga/You just need to stay with him/I am making plans with him/I know you still lay with him/Know you sick of playin', know you sick of playin," he croons.
Cashmere Cat has worked with some of the biggest acts in hip-hop including Kanye West and Travis Scott, among others. He released a collaboration with 2 Chainz, Tory and Starrah titled “Throw Myself a Party" that dropped last December.
