May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and while we’ve already celebrated 13 artists who’ve been unafraid in sharing truths about their own well-being, there’s one more singer who’s come forward with his personal struggles.
Bryson Tiller revealed on Twitter yesterday (May 6) that he suffered from depression while recording his last album, True to Self, and believes it could be the reason the project resulted in low sales. In response to a fan defending the work, Tiller admitted:
“1. i was depressed before i made that album and you can hear it in the music 2. statistically, we didn’t do that great because of it.. and 3. depression ended in 2017 and i been workin hard ever since. stay tuned”
Earlier this month, Tiller tweeted, “Almost halfway thru the year. how you doin on the goals you set for yourself in January?”
And when a disgruntled follower rejected his inquiry and questioned his devotion —”Man nobody wanna hear that… it’s halfway thru the year and u haven’t drop anything bruh like I said before u show no loyalty to ur fans”—the singer kept it candid in his response, again admitting that he didn’t feel True to Self delivered the way it should have. He wrote, “wrong, i love them. just trying my hardest not to disappoint like i did before :)”
