Rising singer-songwriter, rapper, and artist Dre’es has returned with his new single, “Pure Sugar” today. Arriving alongside a cinematic music video, the song is a melodic exploration of the insecurities, anxieties, and desires that stemmed from a previous relationship. The video depicts his friends/collaborators Lecx Stacy, Pontiac, and more, working on the new project as poetic excerpts and scene descriptions are overlayed.
Speaking on the single, Dre’es shares, “‘Pure Sugar,’ lyrically and thematically, is rooted from insecurity but delivered with the greatest intention in an almost like musical peace treaty with a former lover. Naturally providing reassurance and desperately seeking reassurance despite the current state of a relationship on top of a static, blade-like, heavy-winded reverse synth cutting through an even heavier 808 drum. A rap verse delivered like a sermon digging into personal nostalgia in storytelling that an audience can’t help to feel, but only two people could really know.”
The song, which is a flawless blend of emotional lyrics and R&B/hip-hop production, finds Dre’es turning inward and unveiling some of his deepest thoughts yet.
