Having only shared a small set of singles starting with 2018’s “Over U”, not too much is known about Miami-born London-raised singer DWY (pronounced “Dewey”) other than the undeniable fact that he’s got some killer R&B chops. DWY’s impassioned vocals and poignant lyrics sync up nicely with the aesthetic of predecessors like Wyclef Jean or Frank Ocean, all the while maintaining a unique sonic identity, thanks to DWY’s production and multi-instrumental talents.
The latest offering from DWY couldn’t have come at a better time, using his gliding vocals as an avenue for pertinent, social commentary inspired by the current climate of racial tensions worldwide. So make yourself at home with your new favorite artist on his powerful fifth single, “Latchkey”!
