When it comes to R&B that sounds like it's straight out of the 90's and early 2000's, the OVO team seems to have it down to a science.

Their newest act DVSN released it's new album Sept. 5th one week earlier than expected and we couldn't be happier.

Sept. 5th features predominantly old school R&B stylings with a few new aged arrangements sprinkled in. DVSN's Daniel Daley and his outstanding falsetto litters each track and shows why there was so much hype around the release and why the group is becoming one of the favorites among the OVO Sound crew.

DVSN's peers like PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan and even Drake knows what it takes to put together some memorable R&B tracks and Sept.

5th is full of them. It was clear from the Aaliyah "One In A Million" (DVSN remix) that there was something special about the group.

The opening track "With Me" is one of the standout tracks on the album followed by "Too Deep," "Do It Well," "Hallucinations" and "The Line." That being said, the entire album is a successful body of work that truly stands for everything the R&B genre represents. DVSN seemed to have come out of nowhere, but the first impression that he has made will be a very long-lasting one.

This is definitely one of those albums that leave you excited to hear what DVSN has coming in the future.

There really isn't much more to say about Sept. 5th because it's simply one of the best R&B debuts since Bryson Tiller's Trap Soul.
