Close To You (Remix)
Dreezy Feat. Rick Ross & T-Pain
Dreezy's No Hard Feelings is still one of the strongest projects of 2016, and certainly one of the most promising debut albums. The album is split pretty evenly between rapidfire raps and pop-minded R&B, and T-Pain-assisted single "Close To You" is an example of the latter. The song has now been remixed by none other than Rick Ross, who sounds perfectly at home on the lush, melodic instrumental. Rozay opens the track with talk of bubble baths and lust-driven obsession, showing that like Dreezy, he can do hard street rap as well as more luxurious sounds.
I Just Want You (Remix)
Dreezy released her debut album, No Hard Feelings, earlier this month, which featured the Chicago singer and rapper exploring everything from the heaviest of drill records to more traditional R&B slow jams. Much of the LP fell somewhere between the two extremes, as does Dreezy's new freestyle, "I Just Want You," which finds her taking on a beat built off of a sample from Miguel's "Simple Things," transforming the Wildheart singer's piercing tenor into a syrupy chopped & screwed refrain.
Mean What I Mean
AlunaGeorge Feat. Dreezy & Leikeli47
The British duo AlunaGeorge has already shared a few songs from their sophomore album I Remember. Early Wednesday morning, the British duo shared a new song called "Mean What I Mean" that has the potential to do some major radio damage. It features Dreezy, who will release her own debut album this Friday, and the mysterious masked emcee we last caught fucking up the summer last year.
Dreezy's poppy, smooth, & infectious "Body" is a sleeper contender for song of the summer. But the young Chicago artist is not content to churn out hits. She wants to prove her versatility, and that's exactly what she does on "Spazz."
Close To You
Dreezy Feat. T-Pain
Chicago's Dreezy has remained relatively quiet since the new year, but she's picking up speed once again. Last week we got something more trap or street-oriented with the Gucci Mane-featured banger "We Gon Ride." For those unfamiliar with Dreezy, just know that she is not a one-trick pony. On top of spitting bars, she's also a very talented singer. On the Zane Lowe premiere of "Close To You," we get to hear the latter side of Dreezy.
We Gon Ride
Dreezy Feat. Gucci Mane
Dreezy is still one of the more exciting voices coming out of Chicago, although her buzz has lessened a bit since she signed with Interscope two years ago (and received a Common co-sign, which isn't something Com does every day).
Dreezy Feat. Jeremih
After releasing linking up with DeJ Loaf, Southside, & Metro Boomin on her Christmas Eve EP From Now On, Dreezy returns with a promising new track called "Body." With her she's brought Windy City cohort Jeremih, fresh off the release of his outstanding Late Nights: The Album.
Dreezy is one of many talented female Chicago rappers, including Tink and and W.W.A. (the 4-woman group that includes Sasha Go Hard and Katie Got Bandz). She gained attention with her latest EP, Call It What You Want, which featured K Camp and production from Southside. For her latest release, she's decided to remix the biggest tune off Drake and Future's What a Time to Be Alive.
Ain't Rocking With You
Dreezy Feat. K Camp
Dreezy is yet another young Chicago artist who's making waves right now. Releasing her Call It What You Want EP today, the singer has put together five solid tracks with plenty of notable collaborators. The most immediately flashy is "Ain't Rocking With You," which pairs Dreezy with ATL hitmaker K Camp, as well as sought-after producer Southside of 808 Mafia. Thus she gets the Kill Bill siren treatment that has been all the rage since "Commas," but she doesn't have to rely on trend-hopping to make a hot record. Still, it's cool to hear her on this kind of record.
After hitting us with a remix to her "Boss" record with fellow Chicagoan Lil Herb a couple weeks ago, Dreezy decides to return with a new remix over Sean Don and Drizzy’s new “Blessings” record. Leaving the infectious Vinylz-produced beat intact, Dreezy does her thing and delivers some vicious-ass bars that fans will appreciate. No word yet as for where this will end up, but it's most likely just some lyrical exercise to hold the fans over until her next project arrives, or gets announced for that matter.
Dreezy Feat. G Herbo
Dreezy started off the new year strong, by dropping off a new single on New Year's Eve "Boss." The single foreshadowed what she plans on doing 2015, that is, running the game. The Chicago rapper first made a splash with her version of "Chiraq," and this record actually emulates the style and flow of "Chiraq" pretty closely, which works well for Dreezy. Today she enlists fellow Chi-town rapper Lil Herb for the official remix of the track, which is produced by D. Brooks.
Although she might have been a little overshadowed by those who took the stage after her (Audio Push, iLoveMakonnen, Rae Sremmurd, Father), Chicago's Dreezy was one of sure highlights of New York's CMJ Festival this year. The first to perform at an SOB's showcase, she took the stage spitting ferociously, alarming and impressing a crowd that was largely there to catch other sets.
Dreezy Feat. Common & Ross Augusta
Dreezy is making noise in Chicago, and pretty soon she'll be making plenty of noise outside of the Chi too. We're introducing you to the singer-slash-rapper today with a brand new collaboration with fellow Chicago native Common and Ross Augusta, the latter of whom she worked with a lot on her Schizo mixtape.
