Jim Jones hops on Richie Valentino’s newest track “Tiddys” ft. Blue Diamond

Long Island native Richie Valentino makes his 2021 return with a brand new track called “Tiddys,” featuring Jim Jones and upcoming artist Blue Diamond. The hypnotic track serves as yet another example of what Valentino’s capable of, and just how out of the box he can be. After releasing his first studio album Multiple Personality just last year, Valentino has ventured into new spaces and has truly gotten creative with the subject matter in his music. “Tiddys” is Valentino’s first major collaboration and the visual that just dropped to accompany it exceeds expectations.

“Concerts obviously are impossible during the pandemic in New York so put all my creative energy into my music,” Valentino said during an interview. “Immediately after dropping my first album ‘Multiple Personality’ a few months ago, I jumped right back into my studio ( Studio Square Recordings) and jokingly said “songs about anything can pop off nowadays. I could make a song about “Tiddys” and I bet it could go viral.”

“As soon as those words left my mouth I realized there was no major song about that — so a few weeks later I approached Power 105 DJ SPINKING who connected me to Jim Jones,” Valentino continued. Jims’ new business venture “Quarentine Studios” allows well know artists & deejays the opportunity to collab with new artists like myself so “Tiddys” is in fact a Quarantine Studios baby because we were able to connect and put the record together before actually meeting weeks later.”

 

“Tiddys” is the perfect example of the wild and raunchy subjects that Valentino brings to the game. Jim Jones’ bars, combined with Blue Diamond’s softer melody creates a track that definitely has audiences engaged as soon as they hear the lyrics. That’s when he chose to get legendary New York rapper Jim Jones on the track to add an element of surprise and flavor.

“Soon as people hear it they smile,” Valentino said. “Which to me is a win cause it means I did my job as an artist — which is to make people happy.”

As far as what’s next, Valentino says that he has already shot a video with Jones and is excited for fans to see the concept and creativity behind it.

“’Tiddys’ is a song that makes people happy so why not?” Valentino said.

Richie Valentino rose to prominence in Long Island, New York as a successful nightclub and concert producer. He is best known for executive producing the Jones Beach “Latin Nights” Concert Series and recording several voice overs for Grand Theft Auto the video game. His long track record of successful events earned him the nickname “king of Long island” from his concert patrons. He recently released his debut album, ‘Multiple Personality’ and became well recognized for his live performances at events all over the tri-state area.
