Bryson Tiller om beslutet att inte signa med Drake: ”Bland det svåraste i min karriär”


R&B-artisten i ny intervju om senaste årets raketkarriär – och att välja bort drömerbjudandet från Drake.

 

 

Albumaktuella Bryson Tiller slog ner på musikscenen bara för ett år sedan med succésingeln ”Don’t”. Bara för ett par veckor sedan släppte han även det det hyllade debutalbumet ”Trapsoul”. I en ny intervju med Red Light Podcast förklarar han varför han tidigt tackade nej till att signa med Drake under hans ”OVO Sound”-label. Tiller valde istället skivbolagsgiganten RCA som står under Sony Music, trots att Drake var snabb med att kontakta honom.

 


“Drake and [Noah ‘40’ Shebib] had been talking to me and one day I got a text from Drake. I sent him a few songs, he listened to it and was like, ‘Yo, I love this song.’ And then the next text, before I could even text back, was, ‘I really wanna sign you to OVO.’ I stared at it for a long time and then I text my manager Neil… Those were his exact words, ‘I really wanna sign you to OVO.’”

 

 

Bryson säger bland annat att det var ”bland det tuffaste beslutet i hans karriär” att inte välja Drake och förklarar valet såhär:


“It was hard for me. As much as the whole Timbo thing made me feel like, ‘I’m buzzing out here, I’m about to do it,’ there was a lot of times where I really got discouraged and was just like, ‘Man, this ain’t gonna work. I don’t even wanna be an artist,’ just thinking negative things. I’m a real pessimistic person at times. So I just started thinking, ‘I need to sign to OVO or else I’m not gonna be anybody. I need to go ahead and do this, this is what I want. This is how it’s supposed to happen. I did the songs, the dope songs, Drake heard them and now he wants to sign me.’ I thought that was the plan, or God’s plan, but everything just went differently. That was one of the biggest decisions I ever had to make in my life. I’m super naïve when it comes to making business decisions. I signed to two independent labels before and neither of them worked out. This time, I had a whole team… We talked to 40 about it and even 40 was like, ‘This is not a bad deal from RCA’ so we just did it.”
