Tonight, many fans will have their eyes peeled for the release of Kanye West’s album, Donda, and a potential release from none other than Drake. However, there is one artist that may fly under the radar, but deserves all of the recognition. His name is Santan Dave or Dave for short. Casual fans in the United States may know him for single, “Wanna Know,” with Drake. Over the last five years, he’s used his talent, relentlessness and a few key cosigns to deliver a string of chart-topping singles and a classic album called Psychodrama. More than two years after delivering a platinum-selling album, Dave is ready to enter the next phase of his career.
Dave has dropped his sophomore album, We’re All Alone In This Together. Much like his first album, the London native leads the show, but he’s brought a few A-list co-stars along for the ride. Stormzy assists on the lead single, “Clash,” and Boj appears on “Lazarus.” In addition, vocalists like Snoh Aalegra, WizKid and James Blake also appear on the album. Not to mention, “In The Fire” features Ghetts, Fredo, Meekz and Giggs.
“This album, God willing, will explain itself,” Dave told GQ about We’re All Alone In This Together.
“There is a magic to it! I feel like my first album was a concept, but this is canon.”
The cannon is locked, loaded and ready for a listen. Check out We’re All Alone In This Together below.
