‘Mood Swings’, a highly explicit dancehall EP by Drizl released September 2019 was a huge debut risk for this young artist but one that paid off surprisingly for Drizl. The project debuted at #9 on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart and lasted 3 weeks in the top 20. The 7-track dancehall EP references the various elements of passion and love and resonated with his core female audiences around the world.
Drizl has since dubbed himself the Risk Boss as he considers himself the chief risk-taker. Self-confident and lyrically bold as he sees challenges as opportunities to tackle and conquer. His fanbase of risk-takers includes other industry veterans that have broken ground and expanded their craft to other territories. Queff Nation, spearheaded by the queffa himself, Vershon, has acknowledged Drizl’s artistry, mission, and drive for success and sees a future expansion of the camp’s brand where Drizl is included.
The 24yr old dancehall recording artist was preparing for a Caribbean and North American summer tour with the Tower Band when the corona virus forced cancellations of all entertainment activities. This provided an opportunity to focus on writing and recording new material to showcase the more jovial and confident side of his personality.
‘Best Life‘, is one of the first tracks recorded earlier this year in the face of the pandemic and is the first in a string of releases planned for Drizl for the remainder of the year. Set for an August 7th release, the track is a confident interpretation of the lifestyle Drizl intends to embody in the years to come through hard work and perseverance, a message he hopes will connect with many music fans. With catchy melodies and relatable lyrics, Drizl is eyeing mainstream appeal. Best Life is produced by Tower Music Media Group (TMMG) on the Future Weapons Riddim, a project which features notable stars such as Bugle, Jahvillani,and Elly B.
In the addictive Best Life chorus “I live my best life” is a mantra that he says he recites every day, reminding himself that things might not be where he wants it to be right now but its right where it needs to be and progress is being made no matter how small. The chorus also speaks about being the best version of you and being comfortable with that. A topic he knows all too well about as he displays his lengthy locks combined with a range of body tattoos and face piercings.
Having a now 4yr old daughter, Drizl is eager to share inspirational music for her and the rest of the world especially in these challenging times. Continuing to take risks however, Drizl opted to spark some interesting conversations with the official music video. “It looks fresh, and different and would be a great fit for international platforms. The entire set was styled and directed by Shamar Bruce, popularly known as Bru The Stylist.” Drizl added.
The video is scheduled for release on Friday, August 14, 2020 on DrizlVevo, his official site www.officialdrizl.com and other video platforms.
