Tyler and Frank reconnect on a "Flower Boy" highlight.


Tyler, The Creator's fourth official studio album Flower Boy has earned a warm reception from fans and critics alike. The sunny, jazzy project is a perfect summer soundtrack, and the second track "Where This Flower Blooms" feels like the logical progression in Tyler and Frank's collaborative catalog. Beginning with "Analog 2" on The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 (or perhaps even "Window" on Goblin) the two songwriters have been crafting breezy, melodic duets for years; in some ways predicting the sound we now hear across Tyler's new project. "Flower Blooms" has some particularly memorable filtered drums, but it shifts pace many times throughout its three-minute runtime, as synths gallop, squeal, and wobble, only to be subbed out for some jazz guitar strums. Listen to the full project here.

Quotable Lyrics:
I coconut oil the skin
I keep the top low 'cause the follicles thinnin'
But other than that, man, it feels like I'm winning
Went from statistic to millionaire
CNN doubted 'cause my skin is dark
But they forget when I get in my car
