DVSN knows how to slink melodies back to back, allowing fans to appreciate the little details that artists deliver in their craft.
Since 2017, Daniel Daley and Nineteen85 have continued to grow and develop as artists under Drake’s OVO Sound music group. The Toronto R&B duo is keeping the genre fresh with a new sound. On Friday (January 15), they dropped Amusing Her Feelings, a deluxe version of their 2020 album A Muse In Her Feelings. In addition to four new tracks, DVSN exudes modern r&b, glowing with vivacity, overflowing with sick beats and memorable melodies.
The duo first announced a deluxe project towards the end of 2020 by releasing their gospel-influenced “Blessings.” On Thursday (January 7), they unveiled “Use Somebody,” a cover of the rock band Kings of Leon’s 2008 Grammy-winning same-titled song and an exclamation of the rock band’s music “Sex On Fire,” which fills up your soul.
“I’ve been roaming around / Always looking down and all I see / Painted faces fill the places / I can’t reach / You know that I could use somebody,” Daley sings in the first verse. The project features Miguel, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jessie Reyez, Future, Buju Banton, Popcaan, Summer Walker, Snoh Aalegra, and Shantel May.
As DVSN is single-handedly keeping the mainstream R&B game afloat, they described their project as “The story of A Muse In Her Feelings was always broken into chapters… Amusing Her Feelings is just one of the untold chapters that led to where we were on “No Good.”
