Key Item: Camouflage jacket

Color Concepts: Dark neutrals

Shoe Situation: Yeezy boots

Accessory Must: Quay oversized sunnies

Think about Ellie Goulding having a baby with Tinashe, that’s what Terror Jr. could be compared to. High pitched vocals, with saucy lyrics. A steady beat keeps the song on a slick train into pop land. “Down for one night, like I got three strikes,” sings Jr. as the inaudible backup vocals and thudding beat pop back in making you tap your feet along. The song appears in Kylie Jenner’s “Gloss” video where her girlfriends are seen getting into some money troubles at a beat up motel in the desert (totally badass.) Jenner nonchalantly waits in the car, applying her lip gloss as “3 Strikes” echoes in the background. Putting the perfect sexy pop punch in the video. But, who is Terror Jr.? People are suspecting it’s Jenner under this alias, considering no social media accounts existed until after the video. Hmm…..

Bryson-Tiller-Exchange


 

If you’ve seen Kylie Jenner’s quick Snapchat vids of her lip-syncing lately, it’s probably to a Bryson Tiller song. I looked him up and fell in love. Hot damn, Tiller can SING.

He has perfected R&B with subtle rap and hip-hop elements making Trapsoul the perfect soundtrack to your love life. Each song is just as sultry as the next; keeping a mellow vibe. “So gimme all of you in exchange for me, just give me all of you in exchange for me, for me,” Tiller croons on “Exchange.” He blends poetic melodies with explicit rap content in a way that makes you appreciate rap as musical art. The swearing is subtle and adds a slight edge to his music.

Standout track, “Don’t” starts out with a spooky intro, then the bass kicks in as Tiller sweetly sings, “Don’t, don’t play with her don’t be dishonest.” The song talks about sweeping a girl off her feet and taking her away from the man who doesn’t treat her right. Ummmmm… yes please? Whether you’re enjoying a chill wine night at home or out on a fun date night, Bryson Tiller is the perfect sound.
