Ramriddlz highly anticipated Sweeter Dreams project will arrive in less than two weeks.
Though the 23-year-old Canadian singer has teased an August release, he didn’t confirm the Aug. 17 release date until today, shortly after Sweeter Dreams’ title track debuted on OVO Sound Radio.
Ramriddlz landed on our radar back in 2015 around the time he dropped the video for his first single “Sweeterman.” It quickly generated buzz after a 10-second clip of what seemed to be a Drake remix of the song surfaced on the internet. Not too long after, the full Drizzy version was played on OVO Sound Radio, giving Ramriddlz the kind of exposure many under-the-radar artists would dream of.
Drake spoke about his decision to hop on “Sweeterman” during an 2015 interview with The Fader.
“It’s just channeling my mom. Like, I’d bring home an essay that I did really well on, and my mom would read it through and give me notes back—on the essay that I just scored like 94 on! So sometimes I just do that. I’ll hear people’s stuff and… I’ll just give my interpretation of how I would have done it. It’s just, literally, I’ve recognized the potential and the greatness in this piece, and I want to take my stab at it too—which is kind of what my mom always did, you know?”
