The artist formerly known as DRAM is reintroducing himself to the world as Shelley. The rapper, singer, and producer broke into the mainstream back in 2016 and since then has received a Grammy Nomination for his hit song “Broccoli.” No stranger to collaborations, he’s released tracks with Diplo on Look Back, Griz on It Gets Better, and Chromeo on Must’ve Been. This weekend he dropped his new album Shelley FKA DRAM which marks a new sound for the accomplished artist.
For this project, Shelley distanced himself from the more mainstream pop style records he’s become so well known for to show listeners the soulful foundation that helped him generate his core following. To help solidify this change, he’s tapped r&b songstresses Summer Walker, Erykah Badu, and H.E.R to offer their talents on the already impressive record. Full of soul drenched grooves, Shelley’s music is much more sophisticated and marks a giant leap in maturation as he addresses his battle with addiction and life thereafter.
