Toronto natives Dvsn, made up of singer Daniel Daley and producer Nineteen85, recently dropped their latest anthem “If I Get Caught” and there’s been so much discussion surrounding the track that the two pulled up to the Power 106 studios to clear the air and do a little explaining.
Speaking with Midday host Bryhana, both Daley and Nineteen85 admit that the song is meant to strike up crucial conversations about relationships, and double standards, while also being an outlet and anthem for the fellas who might be out in the streets but also conveying their loyalty and transparency.
Described as “polarizing,” “If I Get Caught” borrows a Jay-Z sample, which producer and songwriter Jermaine Dupri helped clear as the longtime vet initially came up with the song’s chant after conversations about cheating with the OVO group members. While the track is intended to be less romantic than some of the group’s previous releases, the new song enlists the help of some of hip-hop’s longstanding icons like Nelly, Polow da Don, Jermaine, Bryan Michael Cox, and many more.
Dvsn goes on to speak about relationship double standards and creating safe spaces for communication.
