Scratchy Virginia R&B howler D.R.A.M. could’ve easily turned out to be a one-hit wonder, especially after Drake hit huge with “Hotline Bling,” a song that sounded a bit like “Cha Cha,” the song that pulled D.R.A.M. out of obscurity last year. Instead, D.R.A.M. returned with a bigger and better hit: “Broccoli,” which featured Lil Yachty and which served as one of the biggest and best euphoric bangers that came out of this past summer. And then D.R.A.M. followed it up with a truly excellent debut album, one that veers from giddy party-starters to languid reveries. We made his LP Big Baby D.R.A.M. our Album Of The Week this week, and besides “Broccoli,” we’ve posted the early tracks “Cash Machine,” “Cute,” and the Erykah Badu collab “WiFi.” And right now, the whole album is out, which means you can use Spotify to stream it below.
Big Baby D.R.A.M. is out now on Atlantic/Empire.
