    Released: October 22, 2018

A Love Letter to You 3 is the third mixtape by American rapper Trippie Redd, released on November 9, 2018.[1] It is the third release in his A Love Letter to You series, which began in May 2017.[1] The mixtape features collaborations with YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Juice Wrld, and Tory Lanez.[1] It is supported by the lead single "Topanga", for which a music video was released on October 30.[2]

Background and recording[edit]

Trippie Redd stated on his social media that he recorded the album in two weeks "right after Life's a Trip", and called it "lowkey better".[1] Speaking about the mixtape to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Trippie Redd said: "The way I set up my projects, I put the first track to the last track. If you listen to it from start to finish, that's how I put it together. It's art, it's not anything to play with."[3] On the content of A Love Letter to You 3, Trippie Redd told Lowe: "It has some stuff about relationships, but that's life. 'Toxic Waste' is about a toxic relationship. What you hear is mixed — everybody has to mix their vocals for how it's supposed to sound. When I record, I do use autotune, but I don't use it how people use it. I like samples a lot."[3]

Promotion[edit]

In September 2018, Trippie Redd stated that the mixtape was "already done" but that he needed 2–3 more songs to complete it, and released an audio clip of "Topanga".[4] On October 30, he released the cover art and track listing, which originally featured "Blastoff" and "Talk That Shit",[5] which did not make the final cut.

Commercial performance[edit]

On the chart dated November 24, 2018, A Love Letter to You 3 debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 with 84,000 album-equivalent units (including 11,000 pure album sales). It is Trippie Redd's second US top-10 album. It was also the week's most-streamed album overall, with its tracks achieving 108.8 million on-demand streams.[6]
