Dvsn is an alternative R&B act that consists of producer Paul Jefferies (aka Nineteen85) and vocalist Daniel Daley. Like some of the other Toronto-based artists in Drake’s orbit, dvsn weren’t all that forthcoming about their identities, but the names of Jefferies and Daley were the common factors in the songwriting credits of each dvsn song through the debut album, Sept 5th. Released by Drake’s Warner-supported OVO Sound as a digital download in April 2016, it peaked at number 17 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Similar to the likes of early Weeknd, PartyNextDoor, and Majid Jordan, dvsn specialized in narcotic slow jams that featured sexually frank lyrics delivered with intentional lapses in enunciation, often in falsetto.
