With unique raps and sporadic beats, Tyler the Creator’s album, “Flower Boy”, was released July 21, 2017. The majority of the songs consist of unrequited love, conviction, and a side of bumble bees.. 43 minutes, 13 songs, and about 10 transitions, “Flower Boy” keeps an overall chill vibe that cannot be argued otherwise. Some may even say that the success of this album has attracted “band wagons” or maybe even new dedicated fans. With the many features of artists including ASAP Rocky, Estelle, BIlly Ocean and many more, the album has hit top 10 on Itunes charts.

“I think Flower Boy is one of Tyler’s best albums so far. Cherry Bomb(former album) is one of the good ones but “Flower Boy” surpasses “Cherry Bomb”. The creativeness and just the way he talks to his audience made everything about “Flower Boy” amazing.” says Rene Santillan, Senior.

The fourth song on his array of masterpieces, “See You Again,” was by far my most favorite, mainly because it has a mixture of singing and personified raps filled with imagery and sarcasm. The rap is catchy and has such an edgy yet groovy vibe accompanying the lyrics. That tell a story. As mentioned earlier the transitions from song to song really accent the album’s name. Each song is held to a neo soul hip hop quota, leaving listeners in a euphoric state.

“It’s a chill vibe it’s not like his other music where he’s screaming,” laughed Santillan.

On repeat I would listen to “Cherry Bomb” and bask in the the unique coalition of genres. As soon as “Flower Boy” was released, a musical rebirth occurred in my art. I’m not trying to sound dramatic or follow the rubric of a stereotypical band wagon, mainly because I am not a “bandwagon”, but I do feel as though the release of this album has allowed me to take the action in paying close attention to the lyrics connecting and relating them to my views on love and confidence.

I advise many students to take the time and listen to “Flower Boy”. Do be warned, the producers of this album suggests parental advisory. Besides the explicit use of choice words the premise of this album has a very relatable story to it. For those who love good music and an occasional laugh this album will definitely meet the cut.
