For Bryson Tiller, this is not so much the ‘difficult second album’ as the second album that literally anyone would have expected. That it dropped a month ahead of its announced June 23rd release date is perhaps the only surprising thing about it.
It takes around eight tracks to divert from the drifty, gushing R&B odes to women and cars. Here, ‘Run Me Dry’ plays a la mode with a loose dembow rhythm, but, as with the rest of the album, there are plenty of others out there who’ve not only done this already but done it more engagingly.
