Dvsn: What's Up - ft. Jagged Edge

By Kerry Doole

Dvsn - What's Up (OVO Sound/Warner Records): The gold-selling Toronto R&B duo comprising singer Daniel Daley and Grammy-winning producer Nineteen85 has just released its second single of 2022. What’s Up features guests Jagged Edge and renowned producer/songwriter Jermaine Dupri.

In a label press release, Daley explains that “When we were playing it for the twins from Jagged Edge, they were so passionate about this song being super special and important for R&B, that they decided to bless us with their vocals and trademark harmonies to complete the emotion.”

The track features a slow groove R&B ballad with a classic feel, aside from the frequent F-word usage. Daley's soulful vocals are well to the fore as he gets confessional ("I should’ve just called you that night, I prolly could've saved us from the fake love and the empty little link ups").


Complementing What's Up is a nostalgia-drenched video directed by Andy Madeleine and featuring Drea from If I Get Caught plus appearances by Dupri and Jagged Edge. 

Dvsn will be hoping the new cut continues the momentum built two years ago with the group's star-studded third album, A Muse in Her Feelings, and its hit song Too Deep.

Hozier Thanks OVO Arena For Clearing Up ‘Misunderstanding’ Over Fans’ ‘Free Palestine’ Scarf

The singer said his team has a "zero policy" about prohibiting sings at shows.

Hozier and the OVO Arena Wembley have apologized and responded to a fan’s complaint about an incident in December in which she was reportedly told to remove a “Free Palestine” scarf before attending one of the singer’s shows. “Thank you to OVO Arena Wembley for clearing up this misunderstanding,” Hozier wrote early Monday morning (Feb. 26) after the venue posted an apology last week to attendee Hiba Ahmad, who said in an earlier X post that she was “pulled aside and escorted to wardrobe” in December while attending a show at the venue while wearing the scarf.

“The team and I have zero policy of prohibiting signs of any kind and I’m sorry to Hiba and her friends that they experienced this at the London show,” Hozier added.
