• Tyler, the Creator - "Boredom"

    It would have been so easy for Tyler, the Creator to continue to rap about doing indecent things to dead bodies. This isn't a criticism by any means; there was a weird charm to it ("She" is a very romantic song, after all). But the draw behind Tyler's latest song "Boredom" lies in the fact that "Boredom" isn't that at all.

    On a laid back beat and featuring Corinne Bailey Rae, Rex Orange County, and, once again, Anna of the North, Tyler laments boredom, something that he may no longer be privy to as a successful multi-hyphenate. There's something bittersweet about a person who's missing that stillness in life, and in that, Tyler, the Creator has created something pretty damn beautiful.—Joyce
