BEST NEW MUSIC: D.R.A.M. - WIFI (FT. ERYKAH BADU)
The biggest story of the year, in my humble opinion, is Chance The Rapper’s paradigm shifting LP, Coloring Book. The secondary story to all that is the slew of talented artists like D.R.A.M. who are finally getting their due thanks to proximity.
Big Baby D.R.A.M. is a phenomenal, soaring debut record that keeps getting better with repeat listens. Standout cut “WiFi,” featuring the legendary Erykah Badu, is the 21st Century slow jam we’ve all been waiting for. D.R.A.M. and Ms. On and On Badu poke fun at our increasing need for technology in order to make a personal connection. They manage to pull of this routine with their tongues firmly attached to their cheeks while still being sexy af. And sure there’s probably a thoughtful metaphor in here about the interdependency between us and our digital devices, but that’s all secondary to a hilarious and incredibly catching song that’s going on.
“No strings attached but we’re still connected, we’re still connected,” seems like the rallying cry for the Tinder generation. Have a listen below, and swipe safely my friends.
D.R.A.M. - WIFI FEAT. ERYKAH BADU
