Bryson Tiller’s ‘T R A P S O U L’ has gone platinum

The album released back in October is hitting the big time

American rapper Bryson Tiller‘s debut album ‘T R A P S O U L’ has gone platinum. Taking to Instagram to share the news, he only announced last week that the album had been certified Gold.

Originally releasing his break-out single ‘Don’t’ on his Soundcloud page, Tiller went on to sign with RCA records, who boast SIA, A$AP Ferg and Zayn among their artists.

‘T R A P S O U L’ was released on October 2, 2015. Writing on Instagram, Tiller said: “so a few days ago, we told everyone that this album went Gold. They actually told me it went Gold a month or so ago but wanted me to wait until my Radio City Show to tell people.

“Well…. Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album. words cannot explain how i feel. thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.”

The 23-year-old hails from Louisville and claims the slow jams of Dru Hill, 112 and Omarion inspired him to follow his dreams as an artist.

He recently collaborated with rapper Fat Joe on track ‘Love You To Pieces’. Tiller is currently on tour promoting the album in America, ending on June 25 in Los Angeles.
