South Carolina rapper and singer, Dro Kenji, has gotten off to a fast start in his still-budding career. After getting his start on streaming back in 2019, the genre-bending artist has dropped nine projects in those four years. It was just about three months ago when the multi-talented creator pushed out WISH YOU WERE HERE. It was a 17-track album with contributions from only two features.

Those were Mike Dimes and Powers Pleasant. They both were on the same song as well, named "PAMPER PAMPER." We covered Dro's tape when it came out and we mentioned the sounds he likes to explore. To keep it brief he is an amalgamation of artists like XXXTENTACION and Juice WRLD. Like those two, Dro likes to experiment with his sound.

Listen To "CALM" By Dro Kenji

That is what he does on this newest single, "CALM." Genius had the lyrics for it back in June of this year, but Dro just released it this weekend. This song features nothing but guitar, as he goes acoustic with it. It is a short two-minute tale about how he wants to never lose this love interest who makes him feel safe and calm. However, his mental state is a bit scrambled. "Are you lost or am I wrong? / I thought I lost you, was I wrong?" It is a beautifully emotional ballad and you should give it a listen.

What are your initial thoughts on this brand-new single, "CALM," by Dro Kenji? Where does this song place for you amongst the rest of the material that the artist has dropped this year?

Quotable Lyrics:

Everlasting paranoia (Paranoia)
Will I complete or annoy you, all along?
(Will I complete or annoy you?)
Take a lil' walk in my shoes
I just took a lil' dive in her head
We just need a lil' time away soon
