It’s been a year without concerts and artists had to discover new ways to keep engaging with their fans. One of the ways a lot of artists did this was by continuously releasing new music (albums, EPs, deluxe versions). A lot artists in the last few months released deluxe versions of their latest projects this year. One artist that just released new music recently was R&B singer Bryson Tiller.
The Louisville musician first came on to the scene in 2015 with the release of his hit singles, ‘Don’t’ & ‘Exchange’ from his debut album, Trapsoul. Over the course of six years, Bryson Tiller has released three albums and been featured several collaborations including Big Sean, Tory Lanez, H.E.R. and his biggest feature with Rihanna for DJ Khaled’s single, ‘Wild Thoughts’. His latest album, A N N I V E R S A R Y was released in October placing in the top 5 on the Billboard. At its time of release, Tiller teased that the album was not finished and that he would return with more new music soon. This February, he rereleased this album with five new songs. A standout from the album is his latest single, ‘Like Clockwork’.
One thing that stands out in Bryson Tiller’s music is the rawness and emotions he brings to the lyrics. He skillfully switches between singing and rapping verses to create some of our favorite songs. For an artist that has released three albums in six years, Bryson Tiller discusses a lot of topics in his music both from his personal life and time being in the music industry. ‘Like Clockwork’ is an anthemic mid-tempo single that finds Bryson Tiller detail perseverance.
In an industry where the price of fame can change a person for better or worse, Bryson Tiller has remained himself through it all. The Louisville singer has plans already to release two more projects later this year for his fans.

Like Clockwork (Inspired by the song of the same name)
And we got caught up in the tok tik
Removing all the people in my life that were toxic
Down, like we did in this pandemic
Had me fucked up
Entertainment been vivid
Used to have me seeing flames
Mind been livid
Now I been grounded for a minute
My name with this pen
That’s the story, that’s the end
Enjoying my wins
Review losses with a grin
Dwelling on the past is a sin
We are not one in the same
It’s like clockwork
When I say it all worked out
Done with the lessons
No more taking handouts
I landed on the right route
I trust there will be more bouts
And people pop up for some clout
Taking charge of my life
It’s been my turn now
Yeah my turn now
