Bryson Tiller Reveals That He and Jack Harlow Almost Did a Joint Album
Bryson Tiller and Jack Harlow almost did a joint album.
The Trap Soul singer reveals that he and his fellow Louisville native had planned to record a collaborative project, but it never happened. In an interview with Bootleg Kev, Tiller explained that he was dealing with mental health issues at the time.
“We planned on doing it a little while ago, but he caught me in the middle of depression so I just wasn’t in that mental space to even do that,” said Tiller (via HipHop-N-More). “I ended up not going to Atlanta like we originally planned.”
While fans will have to wait for a full album, the longtime friends have worked together in the past on tracks like 2019’s “Thru the Night” and 2020’s “Luv Is Dro.”
Their friendship dates back to 2015 when a teenage Harlow messaged Tiller to express his admiration. “Iâ€™m a massive fan dude and study your every move,” he told Tiller in a DM, which Harlow shared in April. “I just turned 17 and Iâ€™m very confident in my craft and trajectory of my career.”
A grateful Tiller responded, “Thanks man I appreciate it. keep working. anything is possible.”

Bryson is now readying his new album, the follow-up to 2020’s Anniversary, for release early next year. In September, he released the lead single “Outside,” which samples Ying Yang Twinsâ€™ â€œWait (The Whisper Song).”
“I’m just so excited to give people experiences, something that they can attach to a memory that they have going on in life,” he said. “That’s kinda what I really care about right now.”
