The track has been serviced to radio stations and so far the feedback has been positive.
Give it to Me Baby was officially recorded for producer Jason Donaldson, but Henri Lanz of finland and American Goodwill co-produced a dance version.
Lanz and goodwill are known for their work with Justin Bieber and Jadakiss.
Tidal recently explained how the song came about.
“I was at Blackbloodz studio and Gyptian was ‘vibing’ a song. He offered me the opportunity to be a part of the recording because he was impressed with some of the material that I had done before,” he told Catch di Riddim. “As a young and hungry artiste searching for every opportunity, I gladly accepted.”
According to Tidal, the producers heard the track and said they could ‘do magic with the vocals on a crossover beat’.
“I was convinced and sent them the vocals because I worked with MGI before and I knew about the quality of their productions,” Tidal pointed out.
Tidal, whose real name is Navardo Graham, is signed to Master One Productions label.
His previous single was Ballground.
