Eli Sostre Isn’t About the “Drama” for New Song
Brooklyn singer Eli Sostre teams up with Hennessy to release his new single "Drama." After sharing "Not Right Now" in August, the artist/producer croons about avoiding messy situations.
"Do you dirty/Deep down you know this shit make you nervous/Bulletproof many niggas couldn't hurt us/I'm protecting all my blessings that's for certain/Fuck the stars that you been with this the real/Hold it down if I fall you know the drill/I've been looking in your eyes I see the signs/Nevermind I put the phone on decline," he sings.
Production for "Drama" was handled by Blair Norf and Soriano. Eli's latest project was Sleep Is for the Weak mixtape that dropped in July. The 12-track tape was mainly produced by Soriano with no guest features.
Last year in November, XXL spoke with Eli where he discussed his sound, calling it “late night drive music.”
“I feel like it’s like late night drive music,” Sostre explains. “Going to the club or coming from the club. It’s mellow. It’s lifestyle music. People I’ve been compared to? I don’t know I don’t listen to comparisons. I don’t care about nobody. I’m better than everybody that’s how I feel.”
