Two giants of contemporary R&B and soul collaborate on an energetic new single.
DRAM has returned with a new single. ‘The Lay Down’ features H.E.R., watt, Pino Palladino, and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers: listen below. Drawing from old-school vibes that recall classic R&B and soul, DRAM has stoked anticipation for an upcoming album, announced in tandem with the single’s release: “over the last two years, I’ve been working on my sophomore album while simultaneously going through the ups and downs of life in general… this time around, I’m really owning my R&B and soul roots.”
“As I mature, so does my sound […] I’m excited about introducing you to the new Big Baby DRAM chapter.”DRAM
A go-to collaborator for everyone from Chance the Rapper to Erykah Badu to Young Thug, DRAM found international fame after releasing the hit single “Broccoli” with Lil Yachty, which has since gone platinum six times over. His debut album, Big Baby DRAM, featured appearances from A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, Trippie Redd and Juicy J, and was featured in Complex Magazine’s Top 50 Albums of 2016.
