Bryson Tiller Ends Fans’ Dry Spell with “Blame”


It’ll be four years since the birth of Trapsoul and two since sophomore album True to Self‘s, and one thing remains a constant in this ever-changing world: R&B fans’ greedy hunger for more Bryson Tiller.

He’s harassed over Instagram, his lovey pics with girlfriend Kendra Bailey flooded with either heavy stanning or nagging demands for a new album, as if it’s the 26-year-old singer-songwriter’s God-commanded purpose in life to provide us material to mope to.

Aside from a handful of features with Tory Lanez, H.E.R., and others, the singer’s maintained a low-key presence, popping up on occasional R&B or hip-hop cuts—and as usual, seeking little credit. Bryson is a simple dude, his social media comprised of ring pop-sharing pics with his young daughter, Harley, and dimly lit Xbox controller pics complete with an invite and his Gamertag.

A single off the upcoming album Serenity, “Blame” breaks the dry spell that’s spanned from Tiller’s last project to now: a bitter-ex, midnight musing vented over drowned-out 808s and heartsick synths.

Tiller’s lulling vocals haunt the 2-minute track, a subdued rumination on a failed love’s sting. He addresses said old flame’s new man and last name, but owns up to being the cause of it all: [“Can’t keep explainin’ myself, feels like I’m drainin’ myself/I guess there’s no one to blame but myself…”].
