On Oct.30, Trippie Redd dropped his highly anticipated album, “Pegasus”. The artist announced his album back in March, and fans have been impatiently waiting ever since.
“I’ve been waiting to hear this album for months. I’m a huge fan of Trippie Redd, so I expected this album to be good, ” said junior acting major Daniel Leach.
Leach loved the album cover art Trippie used and appreciated the detail and design put into it.
“I think the album cover is super cool and intricate. I really like the positioning of Trippie in front of the pegasus, as well as the starry sky in the background, but that might just be because I have an obsession with outer space,” Leach said.
“Pegasus” is much longer than Trippie Redd’s other albums, with 26 songs.
“I was shocked and excited to see how long the album was when it came out. I was not expecting that since most of his albums range from 12-16 songs.” Said Leach.
With a plethora of songs to choose from, “Excitement” gained popularity quite quickly on social media platforms, specifically Tik Tok.
“I think ‘Excitement’ is probably one of the most well-known songs on the album. It was blowing up on TikTok for a month or so.” Leach said.
However despite the length and anticipation, “Pegasus” wasn’t a fan favorite for some listeners
“Life’s A Trip was definitely better than Pegasus. I know a lot of other fans agree that this album lacked personality,” Leach said. “ Out of 10 I’d have to rate it about a 7. It was alright, and of course I loved it because I’m a fan of Trippie Redd, but it was definitely lackluster. I don’t think it’s anything to go crazy over, but it’s nice background music especially if you like his style.”
Pegasus is available on multiple music platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and other popular streaming services. If you enjoy Trippie Redd, fans’ opinions say it’s worth a listen.
