When you combine one of the industry’s most sensual voices, Tory Lanez, with sampling from the crème de la crème of R&B hits made in the 2000s, what you get is a straight-laced, chart-topper: Chixtape 5.
Not only does Lanez remake the greats, he features the artists who birthed them. Chixtape 5 sees immaculate, honey-dipped links track-after-track between Tory Lanez and each original artist stepping in on the new remake of their classic.
Chixtape 5features Jagged Edge, Jermaine Dupri, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Lloyd, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Mýa, The-Dream, Mario, Trey Songz, Fabolous, Slim & Nyce… do we need to say more?
Dusty mauve skies, street-crossed lovers and empty swimming pools. There’s no denying that when dvsn hit you with that OVO sound, you feel it all.
DVSN Releases Morning After
Seducing your soul yet again comes the sultry R&B duo’s second album Morning After, a lyrical, redolent revelation of infatuation, heartbreak and all the illusive in-betweens. Empyrean vocalist Daniel Daley together with powerhouse producer Nineteen85 (‘One Dance’, ‘Hold On, ‘We’re Going Home’) rewrite the rules of alternative R&B – and it’s the best the industry’s ever had.
From professing platonic pleas in Morning After to a celestial sample of Maxwell’s ‘Fortunate’ in ‘P.O.V.’, while emitting the quintessential vibe to put you in the ‘Mood’ – if you ever doubted R&B, dvsn are sure to change your point of view. Further resonating attachment and the fear of separation in ‘Keep Calm’ and ‘Conversations in a Diner’, the album proves an intimate disposition of absconding from a dangerous love affair where its harmonious delivery is nothing short of sensational. Morning After reveals a passionate abundance of more emotion, more feeling – just more, and it’s simply everything you wanted to say – but didn’t know how to.
Words by Eve Zaidan
The tantalisingly-effervescent album remains on par with the duo’s impeccable first album Sept. 5th, where tracks ‘Hallucinations’ and ‘Too Deep’ stipulated the beginning of a long career for the Canadian duo, having signed to Drake’s record label in 2016 not long after their first release. Wave after wave after wave, it’s the original score for an indie movie not yet conceived… but one we’re still waiting to see.
