It was an all-OVO affair on the most recent episode of the label's Beats 1 radio show, as the special guests were roster members Jordan Ullman of the duo Majid Jordan and Nineteen85, the "Hotline Bling" producer who's also one-half of the duo dvsn, the latest act to sign to the Toronto powerhouse. Ullman used his mix to drop a new emotive club-ready track from Majid Jordan, "Free (Us)," and Nineteen85 also used his time on the air to share a new song from dvsn, "Dear Summer Sixteen," which is the first new original track since the R&B act outfit its debut album, Sept. 5th, in March. The new song takes its title from Drake's first single of the year as well as the tour -- on which dvsn is an opening act -- he's been on for over two months now.
The song incorporates a blend of new-school and classic R&B, as singer Daniel Daley coolly flows over a vibrant beat driven by a classic soul loop. Dvsn's latest is a worthy tribute to the remarkable summer season OVO just wrapped up.
Go on and tell me that you'll never leave me
Tell me you need me
If you believe me
And you know that I ain't never cheated
And if I did then I didn't mean it
