Trippie Redd’s “A Love Letter To You 3” finds the singer at his most focused.
As they say, the third time is often the charm. Trippie Redd’s A Love Letter To You series has kept his name buzzing, and now, the third chapter of his series is upon us. Though Trippie is in the midst of a prolific year, there are some still awaiting his definitive moment, in which the full extent of his artistic potential is realized. It feels like A Love Letter To You 3 may very well be the moment fans have been anticipating. Look no further than the opener, “Topanga,” which finds Trippie approaching melody and songwriting with a notable sense of maturity.Such qualities persist across the album’s duration, and while he may have grown in his approach, A Love Letter To You 3 is not without a greater sense of “fun.” Pristine production bubbles below Redd’s often whimsical melodies, and surprising guest turns from Juice WRLD, Youngboy Never Broke Again, and Tory Lanez make for admirable supporting characters, playing against type. By the time “Camp Fire Tale” rolls around, it’s all too easy to picture a smiling Trippie, guitar in hand, empty forty bottles strewn beside him, belting sweet nothings to all the woodland critters.
