Bryson Tiller gets introspective on his intimate new video for his T R A P S O U L single, “Exchange.” The Rohan Blair-Mangat-directed visual looms on a pensive Tiller who spends the video absorbed in a pool of regret after having lost the one he loves and encounters the familiar pain we have all felt when he runs into her while he’s out around town. “I was never loyal, let you tell it, yo/But I’m ready to fix it if you ready,” he pleads on the searing R&B track.
Earlier this week, Tiller hinted that the visual was coming with a post on Instagram with the song’s lyric, “She’s Got My Soul” as the movie feature starring his alter ego, Pen Affleck. Of course, Tiller is probably alluding to Ben Affleck who has been going through it in the press since news broke that he cheated on his significant other, Jennifer Garner.
Ahead of the video’s release, Tiller stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers for his national debut of the track where he won over the crowd with an effortless performance, and kept the visuals as wavy as the songs with lit up LED screens on both sides of him.
Tiller has been having an incredible 2016 following the release of his debut album, T R A P S O U L, at the end of 2015 and a tour that took up most of his time through the beginning of the year. Since then, the album has gone platinum and got to take the stage with The Weeknd who dropped a remix of his hit song, “Rambo.”
