"Taste" is a single by American rapper Tyga. It was released on May 16, 2018 for streaming and digital download by Last Kings Music and Empire Distribution.[1] The song was produced by D. A. Doman and includes a guest appearance from American rapper Offset. The single peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his first chart entry in three years. It is the second highest charting single of his career as a lead artist, behind "Rack City" from 2011.

Background[edit]

According to Tyga, the recording session for the song lasted approximately 30 minutes in a “party” environment that featured numerous people in attendance. He decided to speed up a “real slow” beat that producer D.A. Doman sent him. Tyga proceeded to freestyle over the modified beat which resulted in the first four bars of the song being formed. The song was the “second or third” he recorded in a single night.[2]

Offset was not originally featured on the song. Tyga contacted Offset the day before the first music video shoot, asking him to be a feature on the song. Offset sent Tyga his verse after the initial music video shoot in Los Angeles. That same week, Tyga flew to Atlanta and shot another part of the music video with Offset at a skating rink.[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on May 16, 2018 via YouTube. It was directed by Tyga and Arrad and includes cameo appearances from 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Joyner Lucas, Ronny J and King Bach.[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

In the United States, "Taste" entered at number 82 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number 8.[4] The song became Tyga's first entry on the Hot 100 as a lead artist since "Ride Out" in 2015. It has also become Offset's highest-charting single outside of Migos, both as a solo artist and featured artist.

In December 2018, Billboard ranked "Taste" as the 20th best song of the year.[5]
