DRAM isn't exactly known for sad songs but his new collaboration with Ant Beale and G.O.O.D. Music's Charlie Heat takes the positivity to new heights with the explicit title "Celebrate Life." The party anthem is dedicated to celebrating being alive or, more accurately, not being dead. Right after DRAM "toasts his glass to you," he's lamenting the fact that we lost "too many good people this year" and Ant Beale chimes in, saying there's "too many people we wish was still here."
Charlie Heat's production is loud and rolling with some standout piano and latin-sounding percussion audible in the more pared-down sonic moments. In other words, it's just about the opposite of his famous, minimal "Charlie Heat Version" of Kanye West's "Facts."
This isn't the first time these artists have worked together. Charlie Heat and Ant Beale released an EP together last year, which you can check out here and DRAM and Mr. Heat collaborated on "Cute," also in 2017.
I'm like 'oh my goood' I'm the shit
Walk up in the spot and what it is
All my homies ballin, you tossin' bricks
I'm not on the blooock, I'm settin' picks
