Back in October, Bryson Tiller released his latest visual offering. More recently, he revealed that Creed actor Michael B. Jordan will direct the video for fan favorite, "Exchange.”
While talking with Carl Chery, Apple Music’s Hip-Hop/R&B Editor, Tiller explained how the forthcoming collaboration came to be.
"He’s like the homie," Tiller said of his relationship with the film star. “I’m actually talking to him. He reached out to me a while ago and just showing love for the music after T R A P S O U L dropped. He just said he wanted to work on some stuff with me so we’re actually gonna work together to do the video for 'Exchange.' He’s gonna direct it. I don’t know when we’re shooting that, though. Hopefully, in the next few months."
As January comes to a close, Tiller will embark on his Trap Soul tour in support of his debut album.
The 34-date tour is slated to kick off in Portland on Jan. 24. From there, Tiller will hit Seattle, Las Vegas, Miami, Atlanta, New York and Philadelphia. He will even make a stop in Toronto before finishing off in his Kentucky hometown on March 12. He will be joined by special guest THEY.
Tiller’s T R A P S O U L album hit No. 4 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums with 24,000 copies sold and reached No. 10 on the Billboard 200. Following its release, the singer/songwriter received a cosign from Timbaland and was offered an opportunity to sign with Drake’s OVO Sound, which he turned down.
Rambo actor Sylvester Stallone even promoted Tiller’s track named after the film on Twitter. Stallone appeared as Rocky in the film Creed alongside Jordan.
