Singer-songwriter Tyler Gregory Okonma, known professionally as Tyler, the Creator, dropped The Estate Sale on March 31, which included an array of songs that didn’t make the cut on his 2021 full-length album Call Me If You Get Lost.

Call Me If You Get Lost: The Estate Sale consists of eight new tracks along with the 16 songs that had been on the original album. The new songs feature artists such as A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, and YG and credit Madlib and Rocky as co-producers of the deluxe album.

Before the album’s release on March 31, Tyler, the Creator, released a few singles to the public, including “Dogtooth,” “Everything Must Go,” and “Sorry Not Sorry” to get fans excited about the drop. Each single that was released showcased Tyler, the Creator’s talent, both by himself as well as in tandem with the other talented artists that he collaborated with.

Vince Staples collaborated with Tyler, the Creator on “Stuntman,” while A$AP Rocky was featured on “Wharf Talk,” Tyler, the Creator’s personal favorite on the deluxe edition. DJ Drama was also featured yet again on the new tracks after being on the initial album in 2021, serving as a hypeman by frequently shouting out the album’s title throughout the songs. 

In a tweet, Tyler, the Creator admitted why he decided to drop a deluxe edition of his increasingly popular sixth-studio album.

Call Me If You Get Lost was the first album I made with a lot of songs that didn’t make the final cut,” he explained. “Some of those songs I really love, and knew they would never see the light of day, so I’ve decided to put a few of them out.” 

Throughout each of Tyler, the Creator’s albums, the rapper has always been very conscientious as to what songs make it on each of his albums to portray a specific vision for each one. Call Me If You Get Lost had already been 16 tracks long, so this deluxe edition serves as a way for Tyler, the Creator, to officially close off the album’s two-year era. 

After listening to the album myself since its release on March 31, I can happily say that all eight new tracks do not disappoint. Tyler, the Creator’s ability to rap in a way that communicates stories and emotions to the listener is one of the main reasons why I am such a big fan of his.

With the release of his deluxe album, Tyler, the Creator has also released three music videos for his songs, “Dogtooth,” “Wharf Talk,” and “Sorry Not Sorry,” which have garnered incredible reviews from both viewers and fans of the rapper. 

While every new song on the album has been amazing to listen to, my favorites include “Wharf Talk,” “Sorry Not Sorry,” and “Boyfriend/Girlfriend” due to their musicality and emotion-evoking lyrics. 

Make sure to stream the new album if you haven’t yet – trust me, it’s something that will have you listening on repeat.
