The rumors are true. The mysterious R&B group, dvsn, have signed to the OVO Sound label and are releasing their debut album—Sept. 5th. The album will feature 10 songs, including the four songs they've released already, "The Line," "With Me," "Hallucinations," and "Too Deep." The album drops on April 1st, so pre-order the album and check out the tracklist here. I am very excited because I think the ceiling for this group is very high.

"Recognize (feat. Drake)"- PARTYNEXTDOOR

PARTYNEXTDOOR has revealed a new song called “Recognize.” The Drake-assisted song features PARTYNEXTDOOR comfortably staying in the lane he’s created for himself. He sings about topics very similar to The Weeknd’s, but his vocals are a lot harsher. His voice always sounds slightly distorted and muffled but it fits with the type of production he uses. His singing isn’t great, but it’s not bad either. He’s nice to listen to, but I’m not rushing out to buy anything he makes. I think he fits in with the different styles Drake has assembled on his label. He has also announced that his first for-sale project, PARTYNEXTDOOR TWO, will be released on iTunes on July 29th. From what he’s released so far, I think it’ll sound a lot like its predecessor, PARTYNEXTDOOR. If you want to pre-order it, you can do so here. Enjoy.

"A Place Like This"- Majid Jordan

You probably remember Majid Jordan as the duo that was featured on Drake’s hit “Hold On, We’re Going Home” last year. Well they’re about to release a new project, the A Place Like This EP. They just released the title track and I’m impressed. It’s different from the small bit I heard from them on the Drake track and it sounds promising; it kinda makes me think of James Blake mixed with PARTYNEXTDOOR. They revealed the visuals along with the track and they’re interesting, as well. It definitely kept me entertained. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more about this project and I plan on checking out their first project, the Afterhours EP. With artists like Majid and PARTYNEXTDOOR, OVO Sound is building a solid roster and they look set to have a great upcoming year. Enjoy.
