Mysterious crooners dvsn first popped onto the scene when their singles, "The Line", and "With Me" were played on the popular OVO Sound Radio show. They quickly racked up streams and followers, but nobody knew who they really were. All their branding consisted of was different coloured division symbols. There were no pictures of the members. No credits on their songs. Nothing. Even as they headlined their own sold out North American tour, they remained anonymous. Throughout that tour, Nineteen85 (the producer now confirmed as half of the duo) wasn't even on stage, he was working the sound board because they had nobody else.
Slowly they clues, and fans started to piece together the group — producer Nineteen85 and singer Daniel Daley. A few weeks ago they released their second album, Morning After, and "Nuh Time / Tek Time" is the second song off it. The track is split into two parts: In the first, a lover feels unwanted and doubts the relationship, complaining Daley takes "nuh time" for her. The second half is Daley trying to explain she doesn't need to be insecure, as he will always "tek his time" to be close to her. The song's name is a callback to the group's Caribbean roots and the strong community in their hometown, Toronto.
The production on this is beautiful, as dvsn take us through a journey of which we've all been on both sides.
