Although Drake may have failed to sign emerging artists such as Bryson Tiller and The Weeknd, it seems like he may have found his next star.
Recently Drake posted DVSN’s logo on his Instagram page with “#OVOSound.” Noah “40” Shebib, Drake's producer, friend and OVO co-founder, also posted the logo confirming that the R&B singer DVSN has officially signed to OVO Sound.
DVSN’s identity still remains a mystery but rumors suggest that the singer may be an alter ego for producer, Paul “Nineteen85” Jefferies. The Toronto producer works very closely with OVO Sound, known for hits like “Hotline Bling,” “Truffle Butter,” and “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”
DVSN first debuted the song “The Line” on Ninteen85’s show on OVO Sound radio last October. Since then three more songs “With Me” “Too Deep” and “Hallucinations” have been released on both Soundcloud and iTunes.
Nineteen85 fed into the speculation by tweeting “The line with the two dots” just a few moments after the Instagram posts.
DVSN will be joining PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, and Roy Wood$ on OVO Sound. Hopefully we can expect to see a collaboration between artists sometime soon along with the reveal of DVSN’s identity.
