Bryson Tiller Delivers Music Video for Ying Yang Twins-Sampling Track “Outside”
His first song and video in two years.
R&B’s Bryson Tiller has returned with an official visual for last month’s “Outside.” The new video matches the single’s energy by juxtaposing light and dark imagery to cultivate a layered, vibe-heavy feel.
The self-described track samples The Ying Yang Twins’ 2005 hit “Wait (The Whisper Song)” and seems to mark a new musical epoch for the Louisville artist.
After opening with a yin-yang symbol, the visual cuts between solo shots of Tiller and scenes of him joined by a crew of backup dancers. The Ying Yang Twins, Kaine and D-Roc, also make a guest appearance in a few scenes.
“He been calling your phone, but you don’t call back / Let him know it’s his fault and he need to fall back,” Tiller sings in one verse.
As Tiller’s first release in two years, following his third studio album Anniversary, “Outside” is a particularly unanticipated song. His previous releases have notably all been threaded with lyricism and melodies that enable listeners to ruminate on their feelings alongside Tiller.
““Outside” is the polar opposite of what everyone is used to hearing from me,” Tiller said last month. “Normally we would release a song intended to put people deep in their feelings, but this song is ANTI-FEELS.”
“Outside” is the first release of Tiller’s forthcoming untitled album. Fans can look forward to hearing more information, and music, from the project in the future.
