After digging deep into his R&B roots with the release of his new track, “The Lay Down (Feat. H.E.R. & WATT),” multiple Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter DRAM dropped an accompanying music video today for the soulful new single.

Produced by WATT (Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Justin Bieber, Cardi B), “The Lay Down” debuted earlier this week as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats1 & marks the first new song from the multi-platinum, Virginia-bred artist since his critically-acclaimed THAT’S A GIRL’S NAME EP, released last year.
A NOTE FROM DRAM:
“No one sings anymore. Ain’t no true SANGERS out there! Nobody’s taking it to the stage. No one’s pouring their heart out, but that pattern stops here!
Over the last 2 years, I’ve been working on my sophomore album while simultaneously going through the ups and downs of life in general. As a result of this, many of these experiences have been heavily reflected in my work moving forward. As I mature, so does my sound. I’ve always considered myself more of a singer-songwriter so this time around, I’m really owning my R&B and soul roots. So, as you can tell, I’m excited about introducing you to the new Big Baby DRAM chapter.
Special shout out to H.E.R., Andrew Watt, Chad Smith, Pino Palladino and Ivan Neville who helped bring ‘The Lay Down’ to life.”
