3 Years Later, Bryson Tiller’s ‘Trapsoul’ Has Aged Better Than Anyone Expected
Trapsoul is best described as pettiness incarnate. And, judging by its double platinum certification, it struck a chord. The understated genius of Tiller’s first studio album is the way he recontextualized R&B away from a game of wish fulfillment and toward documenting a regular-seeming protagonist, albeit with dark quirks as specific as those you’d find on a better-than-average sitcom. Trapsoul arrived in the wake of a new Drake era.
Bryson’s debut perfected a blueprint for R&B at the advent of the streaming era (Tiller benefited from a close promotional relationship with Apple Music). Take the blunt effectiveness of rap, merge it with the accessible nature of R&B and set it over a classic sample. Songs ranging from K.P. and Envyi’s “Swing My Way” to Jodeci’s “Alone” to the music from Street Fighter II provides the soundtrack to Trapsoul, nuggets of nostalgia meant to ingratiate new and jaded listeners alike.
Today, singers like Ella Mai, H.E.R. and Brent Faiyaz are creating strains of R&B that tap into the past to say what they want about the present. Syd has directly credited Tiller with inspiring the 808s-based sound of her 2017 solo debut, Fin. Some of these artists sound more like Bryson than others, but they all show that Trapsoul‘s painfully of-the-moment music has had an influence beyond his own career.
