‘Tyga – Temperature’

American rapper Tyga has released five studio albums, two compilation albums, fourteen mixtapes, eight singles (including four as a featured artist) and forty-eight music videos.

In 2008, Tyga released his first studio album, No Introduction, on the record label Decaydance Records. The album featured the single “Coconut Juice”, which features singer Travie McCoy; the song peaked at number 94 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Tyga’s first song to appear on the chart. In 2010, Tyga and American singer Chris Brown released the collaborative mixtape Fan of a Fan, which included the single “Deuces”: the song peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became Tyga’s first song to chart on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, peaking at number thirty. Tyga also appeared on the song “Loyalty”, a single by fellow rapper Birdman, and collaborated with rapper Lil Wayne on the non-album single “I’m on It”, both of which failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

The release of Tyga’s second studio album (and his first to be released on the record label Young Money Entertainment), Careless World: Rise of the Last King (2012), was preceded by the release of the singles “Far Away”, “Still Got It”, “Rack City” and “Faded”, with all four appearing on the Billboard Hot 100. “Rack City” became the most commercially successful single from the album, becoming Tyga’s first single to reach the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and also charting in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. Following several delays to its release date, Careless World: Rise of the Last King debuted at number 4 on the US Billboard 200 and at number one on both the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. His third studio album, Hotel California, was released on April 9, 2013.

As of February 2017, Tyga has sold 600,000 albums and 12.2 million digital singles as a solo artist.
