A few days after the release of his latest project IGOR, Tyler The Creator held an intimate performance in Los Angeles with some of his biggest fans. Partnering up with Apple Music for the show, the rapper live streamed the event which subscribers could watch from home.
Dressed up in his IGOR fit wearing a blue suit along with a blonde bowl cut wig the “See You Again” rapper delivered all 12 songs off the album. In between tracks, Tyler took a moment to talk about the song from who he worked with, his inspiration for the song and spoke with fans in the audience. He explained to fans in the audience and watching online one of the stand out tracks on the album “Earfquake” featuring Playboi Carti was originally written for Justin Bieber:
“I made “Earfquake” like May of 2017 and I wrote it for Bieber. He didn’t take it, so I hit Rihanna’s people up. I was like ‘Hey, I have this song, I would love for her to sing the hook, I think it will be big.’ I just wanna write pop songs, honestly… I didn’t hear back from them, so I left my vocals in.”
