Bryson Tiller was born on January 2, 1993, in Louisville, Kentucky. He’d been living with his mom until he was 4 when unfortunate circumstances led to his mom’s death. This is when his grandmother stepped in to take care of him and his 4 siblings.
He got a degree from Iroquois High School in Louisville. To support himself, Tiller had to work at UPS and Papa John’s. During all this time, his focus was only on one thing – his career in music.
Tiller’s role models include R. Kelly, The Dream, and Omarion. At the age of 15, he decided to give his music career a go. He had no resources to start with, so he decided to ask his friend for a $600 loan, which he used to buy a mic and a laptop.
Once he had his setup, Tiller recorded his single Don’t and released it on SoundCloud. The track was so good that Tiller got contacted by rapper Drake and record producer Timbaland.
He immediately signed a contract with RCA Records and started working on his debut album T R A P S O U L which dropped at the end of 2015. The album landed at the number 8 spot on the Billboard 200.
The singles Sorry Not Sorry, Exchange and Don’t generated quite a buzz. The following year, Tiller won BET’s Best New Artist Award.
His second album dropped a year later. True to Self featured the infectious single, Something Tells Me. In 2017, Tiller recorded a track with DJ Khaled and Rihanna. Wild Thoughts climbed to number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and sold over 5 million copies.
