After getting "Back In Dat Mode" with help from video director Erikson Corniel and a noteworthy sync placement on the NFL Network 'Sunday Spotlight' segment back in January, Massachusetts musician Tyler Loyal slows things down with the debut of his latest R&B single "2AM (You Know)." Co-produced with GRAMMY award-winning instrumentalist Diego Ave, the after-hours appropriate track is a change of pace from Tyler's previous Hip-Hop release and finds The City on a Hill's best-kept secret spotlighting his radio-ready vocal ability.
Detailing the song's central theme in a press statement, the talented triple threat reveals:
"I tend to find inspiration in the women from my past. My recent relationship has been the driving factor for a lot of my recent work, especially when it comes to a song like this. I’ve been told I’m a toxic partner, whatever that means. From my perspective, it’s hard to cut off something you really want. My love is like a drug. I make love with passion. They always come back, and so do I."
