“SORRY NOT SORRY” from Tyler, The Creator’s album “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: The Estate Sale” is a revelation of Tyler’s raw and unfiltered thoughts. The track stands as a lyrical introspection, apology and somewhat of a defiance to societal norms and expectations.
Its production is minimalist, opting for simple, spare beats to lay the foundation for Tyler’s lyrics, ensuring the focus remains on his storytelling. His vocal delivery varies from driven and forceful to calm and reflective, adding dynamism to the minimalist production style.
The lyrical content of the song is deeply personal and unguarded. Tyler remorsefully apologizes for various aspects of his past, ranging from the relationships he’s neglected to the people he’s misled and his contributions to global pollution. Contrarily, he also maintains a stance of unapologetic defiance, refusing to conform to societal norms of communication, defending his evolution as an artist, and questioning the monotony of societal expectations.
One of the standout elements of the song is Tyler’s ability to weave complex themes and raw emotion into his lyricism. He delves into topics such as the public invasion of his privacy, his refusal to engage in small talk, the struggle of shifting identity, and the consequential understanding and misunderstanding of his personality as he evolves.
“SORRY NOT SORRY” may feel like a rough and unpolished reflection of Tyler’s consciousness, but in its rawness, the track locates its strength. Its disarmingly honest lyrics and minimalist production make it a fascinating listen and distinguish it as one of the more thought-provoking tracks on ‘CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST: The Estate Sale’.
