On Friday morning, R&B singer Bryson Tiller released his new album “True to Self” one month early. The sophomore album from the Kentucky singer was originally set to drop on June 23, so fans of the artist were caught off guard when the album popped up on iTunes and Spotify.

Tiller took to Instagram on Friday, sharing his definition of the phrase “True to Self” saying it meant, “When you are being true to yourself, you are completely honest with what you feel, deeply value, and desire.” While it’s still too early for official reviews of the album, that hasn’t stopped Twitter from tweeting their opinions.

Many fans of Tiller were enjoying the album and its emotional lyrics. “You really think imma sit up here and listen to Bryson Tiller’s whole album and start tweeting lyrics because that’s exactly what imma do,” wrote one user. “Bryson Tiller trynna shift cuffin season to summer smh,” tweeted another.

But other users on Twitter weren’t feeling the same way about the new music. “Bryson Tiller new album is mediocre and he made us wait 2 years. This definitely the last summer for Dad Hats,” tweeted @Bdell1014, mocking Tiller’s apparel. “Yall listen to Bryson Tiller willingly,” wrote another Twitter user.

“True to Self” is Tiller’s follow-up album to his platinum-selling debut record, “Trapsoul.” The artist’s latest project features production from some of hip-hop’s best, including T-Minus, Wondagurl and Boi-1da.

“There was one point I rented this house in Miami and had all these producers fly out – Vinylz, Boi-1da, Allen Ritter,” Tiller told Rolling Stone. “I just looked up and realized that I had the whole radio in my living room.”

From the album’s opening track, listeners can tell they’re in for a more upbeat album than the singer’s last record, which is something he was aiming for. “I don’t want it to be a long slow concert, dull and boring, so I’ve got a lot of upbeat production on this one,” he added.

After bursting on the scene in 2015, Tiller has become one of the hip-hop and R&B world’s hottest stars, even getting a co-sign from Drake. “For him to reach out early in my career and say that he likes my music was crazy for me. I was shocked,” he told Rolling Stone. “He gave me the nod, so I would say that was the most surprising.”

While Tiller is now signed to RCA Records, the “Don’t” singer had the chance to sign with Drake. “It was hard, for real,” he said. “I signed to a label before, and it was just weird. I feel like I shouldn’t have made that decision. I did it on my own [that time]; a person asked me if I wanted to sign with them, and I was like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ This time around, I had a team, a lawyer, my manager, a few close friends. It was a group decision.”

Bryon Tiller’s “True to Self” is available now on all streaming platforms.
