Another Love Letter To You

Ben Ayres, Staff Writer

This is the second album to drop in 2019 for Trippie Redd, “!” being the first one to drop at the beginning of the school year.

   The album consists of twenty one songs mostly all having a slow and instrumental beat similar to the types of beats you would hear in his previous mixtapes. As the title describes it, mostly every song on this album consists of love songs. Specifically his lyrics focus on him being heartbroken as if he has broken up with someone recently. 

   Throughout Trippie’s album we can see many features of different artists from the rap scene. Some of these artists being Lil Mosey, D aBaby, YNW Melly, and Juice WRLD are heard throughout his album making song appearances. 

  The first song we are introduced with is “Leray”. In this song, we see the heartbroken side of Trippie as he addresses his relationship with rapper Coi Leray. 

  During the intro of the song we learn about their relationship as he starts singing. We can see this when he sings, “It was love at first sight and misery after two months, always feeling f**ked up either by love or no love,” which shows how up and down Trippie and Leray’s relationship was.   

   By the end of the song we see Trippie sharing his mixed feelings about the break up. When he says, “I don’t write songs, I write life, I told you that, and you were only f**kin’ with my feelings because you didn’t know your own, I do miss who I thought you were,” shows how the feelings are mixed.

   Even though most of the songs on this album are about heartbroken love, there are a few songs that are not which are seen at the end of the album. Songs like “Death”, “The Grinch”, and “M’s” are some of the songs that are not about love which you can see at the end of the album. For these songs, they’re at a faster paced beat with more bass.

   “Jungle Book”, featuring Lil Wop, is the typical rap song that you would hear today discussing guns, violence, and drugs. Even though this song doesn’t reference anything specific, it’s a song that sticks to a heavy bass and fast beat which keeps it on repeat. 

It might be considered a sad album, but it’s still an enjoyable album to listen to which can be streamed through Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, and many other song streaming services.
