"Spicy" is a song by American singer Ty Dolla Sign featuring fellow American singer and rapper Post Malone. It was released as the third single from the former's third studio album, Featuring Ty Dolla Sign, on October 21, 2020. The single was released only two days before the album.[1] The song marks the second collaboration between the artists, after the chart-topping "Psycho" in 2018.[2][3] On January 29, 2021, a remix of the song was released, which adds appearances from Colombian singer J Balvin and fellow American rappers YG and Tyga.[4]


In an Instagram post, Ty Dolla Sign wrote about his collaboration with Post Malone on the song:

You know, that magic that only that person could bring to the song. And "Spicy" was no different. This song needed Post's frequency. Plus, we were overdue for another hit after "Psycho." I'm just grateful that he lent his frequency to this song because we DEFINITELY got another one on our hands. Shout out to my brother Posty![5]


The song features a "hypnotic and lively" instrumental,[6] with a "heavy low end groove topped with swirling synths and a delicate acoustic guitar loop".[7] In "hazy" vocals,[7] Ty Dolla Sign and Post Malone "sing-rap horny strip-club stuff."[6]

Music video[edit]

The official music video for the song was directed by James Larese and was released on November 25, 2020.[8][9] The Western-inspired visual features narration from Snoop Dogg,[10] who begins a story of how Ty Dolla Sign gets his lover back from a gang of outlaws at the start of the video.[11] The video is set in the Wild West, but features futuristic elements such as robotic horses.[12] Ty ends up at a saloon, where he finds Post Malone in a card game with outlaws. He and Post team up to start a brawl with the gang, and he sees their leader holding his girlfriend hostage. Ty Dolla Sign transforms his guitar case into a bazooka, kills him and rescues the woman.[10]
