Keeping time with the Rolex on his wrist, Yung Bans shares “TIK TIK TIK,” his latest single. Produced by Pooh Beatz (Kevin Gates) and Jetson Made (DaBaby), “TIK TIK TIK” is a headphone-ready slice of bubblegum trap, percolating with electric keyboards and frantic hi-hats. Mutating his voice to fit each line, from a delicate whisper, to a wavering croak, to an angelic falsetto, Bans flashes his star potential on the new track, chronicling his frustrations with law enforcement and fake fans who don’t want to see him evolve. Directed by Bavani Productions, the video for “TIK TIK TIK” is an effects-laden peek into Bans’ high-rolling lifestyle, complete with foreign cars, designer threads, and paintings of famous gangsters. “TIK TIK TIK” follows “Gutta Bitch,” Bans’ recent collaboration with YNW Melly, which has over 1 million views on both YouTube and SoundCloud since its release last week.
