Sylvester Stallone heard the Bryson Tiller song that his "Rambo" character inspired.
Bryson Tiller's debut album, T R A P S O U L, became officially available on iTunes today (Oct. 2), though it's been available to stream via Apple Music for a week. It seems the Louisville, Kentucky singer came out of nowhere, but he's now among the most buzzing names in R&B. "Exchange," a standout off the album, made its debut in our top 10 last week. The track "Rambo" has also been getting love from fans, including from the "Rambo" himself, Sylvester Stallone.
Amazingly, the 69-year-old actor heard the track on the same day it was officially released and took to Twitter to share it with his own fans. He told his followers to check out the song on YouTube, and added, "Pretty amazing if I say so myself!!"
Would Stallone have heard of Tiller had he not had a song called "Rambo"? Probably not, but we still gotta praise his taste, especially considering "Rambo" is pretty heavy, experimental material, at least for someone his age. Tiller saw Stallone's tweet and was grateful for the love.
Listen to "Rambo" below. Pretty amazing indeed.
