ARTIST: Bryson Tiller
RELEASE DATE: October 2, 2015
Bryson Djaun Tiller was born on January 2, 1993 in Louisville, Kentucky. As recently as 2014 the singer/rapper was living out of his car while working three jobs to support his daughter, Harley, and musical dreams. Now, in 2016, the 23-year-old is selling out shows everywhere and he can thank his millions of plays on his Soundcloud account which only features ten songs.
“Soundcloud is definitely my key to success,” Tiller stated in an interview with HotNewHipHop.com
Tiller credits Omarion for the reason he started singing, and Drake as his biggest musical inspiration. He released his first mixtape, entitled ‘Killer Instinct’, in 2011 at 17-years-old. Five years later it is clear that Tiller is a completely different person. With his music now he is not afraid to be “real” with his listeners.
After being discovered in early 2015, Tiller signed with RCA in April.
Released on October 9, 2014, “Don’t,” was the first song that Tiller had recorded in years. Currently the song has been listened to over 17 million times. The other nine songs on his Soundcloud account have been listened to collectively over 25 million times. ‘TRAPSOUL’ debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 11. See why on Apple Music.
