Mr. “Cha Cha” has more in the stash
D.R.A.M., the Virginia native whose feel-good, Beyonce-endorsed “Cha Cha” put him on the map, has become a fringe-pop sensation, as the video to his break-out his nears the 4 million views mark, and his scene-stealing role on Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment‘s Surf album has quickly become a fan favorite.
For the second time this year, D.R.A.M. and Donnie have linked up, with “$,” a standout off the VA rep’s #1Epic EP, getting the Trumpet treatment for its official release as a single. “$” is a noted departure from the up-tempo nature of “Cha Cha,” as D.R.A.M. laments over his purpose before a booming bass line, accompanied by a steady piano melody and Donnie Trumpet’s liberating horns, help reveal that though D.R.A.M. isn’t exactly sure why he’s on this planet, he knows exactly what this particular song is for.
“This be that sh*t that make a n*gga get off his ass and get money.”
