From the summer smash “Broccoli” with Lil Yachty to his money-loving “Cash Machine,” D.R.A.M. has emerged into the spotlight with his slew of viral hits.

Dave B. Reflects On His Progression With Joe Kay

Dave B. is one of the most promising artists in the game right now. The Seattle-bred artist first caught my attention with “Olive Oil,” which quickly led me to his Punch Drunk and Coffee projects. Dave channels soul with his unique blend of singing and rapping throughout each track, most recently with his collaborative album with SángoTomorrow.

Dave sat with Joe Kay on Soulection Radio to shed light on Tomorrow, his creative process, and his recent shows at The Novo and with Macklemore. The interview wraps up with a performance of “Zonin’,” the opening song of the album, as well as an unreleased track.

Check out the interview, live session, and full episode below.
