Tyler, The Creator aka Sir Baudelaire has dropped his sixth studio album, Call Me If You Get Lost. Prior to the release, Tyler dropped four music videos, sold new exclusive merchandise and created a phone number for fans to call and hear snippets of the album. Now with the album out, fans are losing themselves in the music.
Just two years after his GRAMMY winning album, IGOR, which Tyler wrote, produced and arranged all himself, Tyler got some help from DJ Drama on this album. Matter of fact, Drama places his signature drops and talks his talk on multiple tracks.
Tyer posted this video of him giving DJ Drama his flowers in person, on Twitter, the night before the album dropped.

Standout track, “WUSYANAME,” which was released as a single/music video, is Tyler’s crack at a 90’s R&B hit. A beautiful sample provides the bulk of the production and an array of silky background vocals from Ty Dolla $ign, plus a verse from NBA Youngboy, catches Tyler at what he does best: collaborating. He raps to a fictional lover,
Listen to bands, groove and we dance / Disco in France, smell some perfume, head in the wind (In the wind) / We can switch off / I can show you how you can really exfoliate skin / If you got a man, you should cut him off / Get your passport ’cause we runnin’ off (Run off)
Fans and critics have come to expect the unexpected from Tyler, The Creator. Every studio album he has released has sounded drastically different from the previous and Call Me If You Get Lost continues that trend. As an artist that focuses on the sonics of his albums, Tyler not only brought new and creative production but also brought the raps too.
