New music Friday is just one sleep away and already some tunes are being put out to the world to stream. Afrojack and Ty Dolla $ign have teamed up on a radio-friendly, dance-pop single "Gone."

Following up Afrojack's heavily promoted single "Hey" that was geared towards radio play, "Gone" is much stronger and relies more on his own production capabilities and the soothing and versatile voice of Ty Dolla $ign to help steer the track towards the dance floor, radio or pool party.

Ty Dolla $ign, real name Tyrone William Griffin raps about the globe-trotting lifestyle that both artist's lead where they are in a new city each day. Cooing to some lady, Griffin makes it clear he is always moving on from one romance to the next as the job takes him worldwide.

Afrojack throws in some pitched vocal chops that have become all too common in dance-pop tracks these days, but it doesn't feel played out on "Gone."

This may be Afrojack and Ty Dolla $ign's next big hit. It is a fun addition to those summer playlists that listeners have been burning through over the past few months.

"I've been keeping up with Ty for a while and have wanted to work with him since his last record dropped," Afrojack told The Fader. "I love pushing boundaries and Ty brings a unique style to the game. It was time for something new- collaborating with him did just that."

Stream "Gone" now below and pick up a copy of the song when it is released tomorrow.
