TYLER THE CREATOR LAYS IT ALL OUT ON FLOWER BOY
POSTED JULY 21ST, 2017 | BY TONI POSTELL
Tyler the Creator lays everything out on the table with this new first full length Flower Boy project that premiered today. Recently, the album contains lyrics that raise speculations about Tyler’s sexuality. But who knows?
Anyway, we have waited 2 years since 2015’s Cherry Bomb and it was definitely worth it. With the hiatus, Tyler has shown growth as an artist with this album. His 14 songs include cameos from Lil’ Wayne, Pharrell Williams, Estelle, ScHoolboy Q, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jaden Smith, and Kali Uchis. Recently, he debuted new singles “911/Mr.Lonely” featuring Frank Ocean, Steve Lacy and “Who Dat Boy” feat A$AP Rocky. This is definitely a great time for him to put out this album because majority of the songs have a summertime vibe.
My favorite song is “I Aint Got Time!” The song is definitely one you would play in the car or party. The fact that is used “Groove is in the Heart” by Deee-Lite as its sample is pure genius. But who would be surprised? Tyler always was one to think outside the box with his music which is always refreshing to have instead of your Mumble Rap (no shade).
My other favorite is “911/Mr.Lonely”. Automatically, I love the song because it is a Tyler/Frank duo and they always make magic with hits like “She”. Now I think this is the song where you hear the speculations of Tyler’s sexuality but you know what...I AM HERE FOR IT! Music is a way to express you inner thoughts and if he wants to use this platform to come out then do it!
You can stream Flower Boy now. Don’t miss out!
Here is the full album via TIDAL!
