As he prepares for the release of his third studio album What Had Happened Was…, Hampton, VA’s own DRAM gifts his fervent fanbase with another single from the project. This time, he teams up with singer BJ The Chicago Kid for “PPL,” a soulful Alissia-produced track serving up big '70s soul energy.
When you press play on "PPL," you'll feel every aching word as DRAM and BJTCK sing of the disappointment and devastation of heartbreak over the laid-back, throwback groove. After calling it as they see it all on each verse, they united on the chorus to declare, “People just hurt people 'cause they were hurt by someone else.”
DRAM’s latest offering marks the third release from the forthcoming LP, following the lead single “WHAM!” and “Let Me See Your Phone.” Via press release, he describes the project as his most “raw and open album yet” and says it will take fans along as he ponders his “personal traumas.” Potential emotional triggers aside, judging from the subject matter covered throughout the three singles, it’s all shaping up to be a journey of both passion and pain, and we’ll gladly take the ride.
Listen to DRAM’s “PPL” featuring BJ The Chicago Kid below and try not to fall too deep into your feelings. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to pre-save the full What Had Happened Was… album on your preferred digital platform before its November 10th release date on Waver Records.
