Atlantic Records is proud to welcome its latest signees, The Americanos, with the release of “In My Foreign (Ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, Nicky Jam & French Montana),” the lead single from the upcoming Paramount Pictures/Revolution Studios action-adventure film, xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE. The star-studded track is available at all DSPs and streaming services now; xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE arrives in theatres across North America on Friday, January 20th.
“The Americanos are family right there, so when they asked me to jump on this record, you already know it was a no-brainer. The beat was so wavy. That sample gives it those old-school L.A. feel good vibes,” says platinum-selling artist Ty Dolla $ign of working on “In My Foreign.” “You got Dolla $ign, French, Lil Yachty & Nicky Jam all on one song? That’s a recipe for a smash. So much sauce.”
“It is a dream for me to debut on the big screen and alongside the amazing actor Vin Diesel,” says Latin GRAMMY® Award-winning rapper Nicky Jam, who also co-stars in xXx: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE. “I have prepared myself in the best way to respond to this opportunity that life has given to me. This will prove that I am a multifaceted artist who doesn’t have any fear to experience in different fields beside music. In addition to the acting in the film, I love being featured on the lead single ‘In My Foreign’ alongside my friends The Americanos, Ty, French and Yachty. I thank all my people for opening this new path in my life and in return I will give the best of me with effort and dedication, in this excellent experience that I enjoyed from beginning to end.”
The Americanos are undoubtedly among modern music’s most powerful new combos, a super producer group comprised of Lex Larson, Louie Rubio and DJ Felli Fel, the latter of whom has produced RIAA platinum certified hits from artists including 50 Cent, Chris Brown, and Akon. Known to hip hop fans as “The Record Maker and The Record Breaker,” DJ Felli Fel hosts two hugely popular radio shows that reach over 2 million listeners daily via Los Angeles’ Power 106 FM. Lex and Louie made a splash this year with “Set Me Free” for the acclaimed Netflix original series “The Get Down.” The pair is also behind the No. 1 single “We Run LA.” The Americanos made their debut in 2015 with the smash single, “BlackOut (Ft. Lil Jon, Juicy J, Tyga),” which was hailed by Hot New Hip Hop as “a high octane banger,” and has earned over 10 million worldwide streams thus far.
“In My Foreign (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, Nicky Jam & French Montana)” was executive produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning Producer Kevin Weaver. As Executive Vice President of Atlantic Records Group & President of Film & TV at Atlantic Records, Weaver has produced a successful array of global smash records including SUICIDE SQUAD, FURIOUS 7, Boardwalk Empire, The Fault In Our Stars, Girls Volumes 1 & 2, True Blood Volumes 1 & 2, and more.
