Bryson Tiller Talks “Wild Thoughts,” ‘True To Self,’ Drake, JAY-Z & More

Bryson Tiller Tim Westwood

Bryson Tiller traveled across the pond last week for a performance at the annual Wireless Festival on Friday night.

Prior to his set, the R&B star sat down with UK radio legend Tim Westwood for an off-camera interview. The often reclusive artist addressed his decision to not do many video interviews, avoiding the added attention from females now that he is a celebrity, and how success affected the relationship with the mother of his child.

Tiller spoke briefly about his feature and the success of “Wild Thoughts,” he talked about being flattered by other artists doing the ‘TrapSoul’ sound, and his early influences. When asked about it, Bryson said he loves JAY-Z’s new album 4:44, but he revealed that he hasn’t even heard all of Jay’s past albums, and he never used to listen to hip hop at all. The first rap artist that he got into was Lil Wayne.

Speaking about rap artists, Pen Griffey said he wants to get back in the studio with Travis Scott. During another off-camera interview on Capital Xtra, he discussed why his previously-teased collaborations with Drake haven’t been released yet. “I sent him a few songs and he sent me a few songs. We just gotta see what happens,” he said. “I don’t ever want to rush a song with anybody. I just want to put out the right song or the right project … Whatever it may be, I don’t want to rush it.”

DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller are giving us “Wild Thoughts.”

As promised, the platinum hitmaker has delivered his much anticipated new collaboration with the superstar singers off his forthcoming star-studded album, Grateful.

Filmed in Miami around the infamous neighborhood, Little Haiti, the visuals boast summer block party vibes over a sample of Carlos Santana’s hit single “Maria Maria.”

Khaled and RiRi open the video walking through the streets, as the pop icon flexes her sex appeal in a revealing see-through top. “I don’t know if you can take it / Know you want to see me naked naked naked / I want to be your baby baby baby … When I’m with you all I get is wild, wild thoughts,” she sings before the wail of the electric guitar rings off on the chorus.

Pen Griffey appears in a window looking down at the street as he explicitly sings to a new love interest. “I hear that pu**y for the takin’ / I heard it got these other ni**as goin’ crazy / Yea I treat you like a lady,” sings Tiller.

“Wild Thoughts” follows the video for “I’m the One,” which helped the Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, and Quavo single become Khaled’s first No. 1 on the Hot 100.

Grateful is due out on June 23 featuring additional appearances from Beyoncé & Jay Z, Drake, Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Alicia Keys, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Migos, and many more.

“i know we said June 23rd… but i say we Set it Off Tonight!! ALBUM OUT NOW,” he wrote with a link to iTunes.

The follow-up to 2015’s TRAPSOUL is led by the previously released single “Somethin Tells Me,” however his other recent drops “Get Mine” featuring Young Thug, “Honey” and “Let Me Explain” did not make the album.

Instead, tracks with the titles “Rain On Me,” “No Longer Friends,” “We Both Know,” “Money Problems” and “Stay Blessed” made the cut.

Sharing his meaning of the album title, Bryson wrote. “When you are being true to yourself, you are completely honest with what you feel, deeply value, and desire. It also means communicating your feelings wholeheartedly both with yourself and others, allowing your truth to flow through you and into the world.”
