R&B crooners have always loved some Black girl magic in their music videos and Bryson Tiller is following suit with “Somethin Tells Me.”
The song and video, from his second studio album, is creating conversation from the dozens of Black women featured, posing in skin tone bathing suits. In the visuals, the 24-year-old plays a photographer who is tasked with having to shoot the models and develop their photos.
Already at 2.5 million views, its popularity proves the need for representation of all shades of Black women in popular culture. Wale, Drake and Wizkid have all been a part of the movement to celebrate the many hues of Blackness in our communities.
When he’s not making trap soul music and hanging out with beautiful women, the artist is helping those out in his community. In December, Tiller paid the grocery bills of shoppers at at Kroger and Pic Pac in Louisville, Kentucky.
Bryson Tiller’s Set It Off Tour will kick off June 23 in Los Angeles.
