Trav B Ryan is an American artist who is currently releasing a series of singles related to astrological signs. This is the first of its kind, a rap song talking about zodiac signs. He is essentially the Lin Manuel Miranda of the mainstream Rap world.
The Water Bearer begins with a light mellow beat structure that feels like an upbeat lofi track in the beginning. Then we hear Trav’s energetic voice swoop, the track then takes a hard left. He takes us on a journey into his Aquarius world. Trav B Ryan does an excellent job at keeping the intensity up with his power pact lyrics while also managing to be emotional.”When I turn into dust, don’t sweep me with no regular broom. No coffin, just a regular room. I need space.” The words speak for themselves here. You would think that Rap has seen it all, sex, drugs, politics and even American History right? Nope, Trav B Ryan came in and said ‘Hold my glass, let me show them how it’s done!’ and gave us The Water Bearer. It’s refreshing to see a man speak so enthusiastically about being into astrology.
The Water Bearer would fit so well in a movie like Ghost of Girlfriends Past. This movie is such an adventure with a variety of well written characters in hilarious situations. The expert writing doesn’t fail to stand out and the star studded cast supports the writing just as well.
Trav B Ryan has over 96K followers on instagram and listeners across the world, on spotify. This is only seems to be growing. You must follow him for his poetic breakdown of the zodiac signs if astrology interests you in any way. It is a taste
