Blasé

Album: Free TC (2015)
Charted: 63
  • This song features a guest appearance from Future, who croons the hook back and forth with Ty Dolla Sign and also sings the outro. Rae Sremmurd also contributed to the cut with Slim Jimmy of the rap duo taking the second verse and his Rae Sremmurd colleague (and brother), Swae Lee, the third.
  • Blasé is originally a French word meaning unimpressed with something because of over-familiarity. It has been adopted by English speakers as a more stylish way of saying "Blah-Blah-Blah" or "whatever." On this song, Ty Dolla Sign and Future are crooning about how accustomed they've become to their lifestyle of expensive Rosé wine and luxury cars. They are blasé about all their extravagant trappings.
  • The song was produced by DJ Spinz, whose other credits include Ca$h Out's "Cashin Out," Future's "Commas" and Rich Homie Quan's "Flex (Ooh Ooh Ooh)." The child's voice you hear near the beginning saying "Cut it up" is Spinz's tag - it turns up in every one of his songs.
  • The music video features cameo appearances from Tinashe and Dej Loaf but Future is absent.
