• Bryson Tiller explained:
"On this song, I'm not boyfriend number two and I'm not trapped in the friend zone. I'm actually pretending;
I jumped out of myself and got into a perspective of somebody else."
"I wasn't doing what I needed to be doing in my relationship at that time and I was
kinda f*cking up, so I thought what if somebody else stepped in the picture? So, I said cool
I'm gonna be that person and write a song from his perspective, trying to get my girl.
That's something that nobody would know ever."
The song is the lead single from his debut album
T R A P S O U L
He explained where the idea of Trapsoul came from:
"I released a song called
Let Em' Know
off SoundCloud and some fan commented on it
and was like, 'Trap soul movement,' and I was like, man, that's dope. What is that? And it
just sounded like my music. That was the perfect word to describe my music, so I was just like,
I'm going to call my project that."
