Our favourite Flower Boy, Tyler, The Creator, has made his single “BOYFRIEND” available digitally.
The track was originally an exclusive of the physical release of the ‘IGOR’ album, as an extended version of track four, an interlude titled “EXACTLY WHAT YOU RUN FROM YOU END UP CHASING”. It features singers Charlie Wilson and Santigold, as well as a voiceover from comedian / actor Jerrod Carmichael. The collaborative song is definitely going to be a nice addition to your chill vibes playlist.

BOYFRIEND was released to celebrate the one year anniversary of IGOR’s release. Shortly after the album was released, Tyler topped the Billboard 200 charts for the first time in his career. The critically acclaimed LP included tracks ‘EARFQUAKE’ and ‘A BOY IS A GUN*’.
He won the Grammy for Rap Album earlier this year, and used the opportunity to call out the Academy for categorising his music as ‘rap’ or ‘urban’. Although Tyler is known for being a rapper, his latest projects in recent years have been more genre-bending and experimental than his Odd Future days.
While we’re waiting for the song to appear on Spotify and Apple Music, you can listen to BOYFRIEND here:
