Bryson Tiller’s ‘True to Self’ Has Everyone in Their Feelings, Twitter’s Best Reactions
Bryson Tiller just surprised everyone by dropping his new album True to Self a month early, and folks are really, really happy about it. Sort of. Basically, Tiller has everyone deep in their feelings and they are now both wallowing in sadness yet somehow very excited to be there. Oh, the complexities of young love.
The album is a study on love and relationships—the ups and downs and in betweens, the late night texts that you know you didn't have any business sending, the reminiscing on the good times, the incessant wondering about what went wrong—it's all there in Tiller's 19-track offering.
On "No Longer Friends" he explores the back and forth feelings of realizing he has deepening feelings for his homegirl, at points talking directly to the other dude she's involved with.
"You was on the verge of losing it/You was acting like you ain't want s--- to do with her/I cut out the bulls--- and kept it true with her/That's why the sexual tension is high when I'm in rooms with her," he explains on the slow-grinding track.
The rest of the album continues in the same vein—delving into Tiller's feelings about love and lust, loyalty and betrayal, the back-and-forth between wanting someone and then pushing them away—all the while showcasing his above-average, relatable writing skills.
Since the project dropped, he's been trending on Twitter. Take a look at some of the best (read: over-the-top emotional) reactions to the surprise album below.
