Back and better, Bryson Tiller has recently came out with his new debut album “T R A P S O U L”, fusing both rap and a smooth R&B sound to create his own “trap-soul” movement.

The album consists of 14 tracks with no features giving Tiller the opportunity to really shine and show everyone what he can do on his own.

He does not stick solely to one genre but rather explores other sounds being heavily influenced by those of “trap” music but still throws in his “soul” effect with the R&B kick.

His sound is easily compared to that of PARTYNEXTDOOR but unlike PND, Tiller has bars and handles the rap genre better.

The album received overwhelming plays when it first dropped, catching the ears and appealing to many of today’s youth with songs that many can relate to.

Previous singles released by Tiller even attracted the likes of Timbaland and Drake, the latter of which wanted to sign him to his OVO record label.

The album begins with Tiller’s slow, soft singing voice singing the intro “Difference,  smoothly transitioning into the more upbeat “Let ‘Em Know”, a song letting others know to stay away from his lady.

The middle of the album is filled with R&B, slow songs like “Exchange” and “The Sequence” where he addresses that he makes mistakes and is trying to better himself.

Almost all of the lyrics on the album addresses topics that anyone who’s been in a relationship can relate to, however the album comes in strong with songs like “Rambo” and “502 Come Up”, not letting his listeners forget the “trap” side to his album.

Tiller then closes the album with the slower, more somber ”Right My Wrongs” where Tillers gives an insight into his struggles with love and pain; the perfect outro for this type of album.

T R A P S O U L” is the perfect album to play for many different occasions, whether it’s for the “turn up” or when you’re in your feelings.

This appeals to all those hopeless romantics while also relating to all those trap stars out there.

Tillers lyricism in combination with his “trap-soul” beats make this album one that you must listen to at least once.
