So, I won’t lie, son. As I write this post, I’m playing “Nuh Time/Tek Time” at ignorant volumes. With that being said, I won’t mince words here, man: dvsn is BY FAR Drake‘s best act, fam. I mean, given the current musical landscape, this is exactly the type of R&B that I want to hear, bruh. Shit, in an age where singers can’t sing and producers can’t play instruments, I get hyped when I hear music like this. All in all, anybody who’s sleeping needs to get onboard.
Now, keeping it a buck, I caught on to the dvsn wave around the time “Too Deep” dropped. I was aware of their first two songs (“The Line” and “With Me“) but I didn’t take the time to listen. Needless to say, once I heard “Too Deep,” I scavenged for anything else I could find, son. In any case, once Sept. 5th came out, it was a wrap, man. Besides the aforementioned jams, I kept “Try/Effortless” and “Do It Well” on repeat, fam.
Moving on, as of right now, I’m knee deep in their new album, Morning After. Now, I didn’t think I’d be able to say this, but the production may be better on this record, bruh. I mean, Nineteen85 put his whole foot, ankle and shin in these instrumentals, son. In addition, Daniel Daley is still showing folks that vocals matter. Listen, let me just say it like this: they sampled the god Maxwell on “P.O.V.” and I didn’t want to shoot them in the kneecaps, man. Real talk, that takes talent, fam. All I know is, lesser men would’ve royally fucked that up, bruh. By and by, folks need to quit reading this and just go listen to the album.
In the end, this post ain’t a shot at anyone else at OVO Sound, son. Folks can keep enjoying PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods, man. All I’m saying is, if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on dvsn, fam. Ultimately, any music that’ll make a girl strip should be appreciated, bruh. Shit, nothing else needs to be said here. LC out.
