Critically acclaimed Seattle hip hop artist Dave B is thrilled to announce that his luminescent new album Pearl will be released on November 17 and is partnering today with Complex to premiere his captivating and passionate lead single, “Sweetest Thing.” Dave’s highly anticipated album Pearl is now available for pre-order with instant grat track “Sweetest Thing” where Dave indulges himself in a new aphrodisiac, true love.
Inspired by heartwarming summer days down at the beach, the road to making Pearl with producers Elan Wright, Nima Skeemz and Darius Rios was not as smooth as originally planned and became a true labor of love. Dave B explains, “It’s been a long journey making this album. So Elan, Nimon, Darius and I pretty much created the whole project. Then I lost my laptop with everything and we had to start again from scratch. We locked ourselves in the studio and with no time that summer to hit the beach, we created feel good music that took us there. And after all that, the end product is this luminous Pearl… it started off as a grain of sand and transcended into a beautiful, rare gem.”
Lead-off single “Sweetest Thing,” was influenced by Dave B’s co-producer, “With Elan getting married at the end of the summer, I was inspired to write about that deep, timeless kind of love. What does it feel like to have a soulmate? That love must be the sweetest thing that you’ve ever known.”
Dave B combines hip-hop, jazz, R&B and funk elements with vocal versatility, lyrical dexterity and boundless creativity in his latest effort resulting in a multifaceted lustrous album. Dave B is proud to present his latest musical jewel, Pearl.
