D.R.A.M. Performs “Broccoli,” “Cash Machine” and More for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert
D.R.A.M.'s smash hit "Broccoli" dominated airwaves and online streams in 2016. Recently, the Virginia artist performed the Grammy-nominated banger, along with a few other tracks, for NPR's Tiny Desk concert.
Throughout the 20-minute clip (which can be viewed below), the 28-year-old singer performs "Cash Machine," "Cute," "Sweet VA Breeze," "Special" and "Broccoli," in that order. He kicks off the concert by strutting into the NPR office just in time for the beginning of "Cash Machine," which makes for the dopest NPR Tiny Desk entrance of all-time.
Obviously, D.R.A.M. works tirelessly to perfect his singing voice. However, one of his biggest strengths as an entertainer is that he makes his notes seem effortless while he's performing. Another cool aspect of D.R.A.M.'s shows is that he's all smiles, all the time - he seems to always be having a genuinely good time.
In other D.R.A.M.-related news, the "Cha Cha" artist recently teamed up with his cousin MASS for a new track titled "Only Gang." Prior to that, D.R.A.M. appeared in a hilarious promotional clip for PETA, in which he encourages fans to eat more vegetables (specifically, of course, broccoli).
As aforementioned, D.R.A.M. is up for a Grammy at this year's awards, set to take place on Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. He told XXL that his friends were hype about the Grammy nomination. "They was like, 'Grammy? Really, nigga getting nominated for Grammys out here now? That’s how we do it?' On some crazy shit, runnin’ and jumpin,’" he said.
As aforementioned, you can watch D.R.A.M.'s Tiny Desk concert below via NPR.
