D.R.A.M., Elhae and H.E.R. Join Snakehips for New Song “Right Now”
With the summer solstice quickly approaching, Snakehips are making their case to take the title for 2017's summer anthem. The British production duo drop off their newest song, "Right Now," featuring Atlanta singer Elhae, Virginia rep D.R.A.M. and mysterious singer H.E.R.
Snakehips makes use of a heavier percussion rhythm than on previous tracks, adding some attitude that reflects the volatile personality of the female subject of the song. Elhae handles the hook with H.E.R. occasionally harmonizing with him while D.R.A.M. provides two verses.
All three singers share the sentiment that the relationship at hand is a self-destructive one that might end poorly for all parties involved: "You know when we get together we probably won't act right/You've been talkin' shit forever, but tonight's the last time/Bottle on the table, like the one we finished last night/Hold up on the breaks and hit the gas."
But even with the consequences in plain sight, they're mostly concerned with living in the moment. Time will tell if Snakehips can launch this song to radio and BBQ playlists across the country.
D.R.A.M. has been in high demand in 2017, working on new music with Blac Youngsta and Mark Ronson. He also landed an appearance on Spotify's Traffic Jams series. Elhae also recently released his Aura II EP.
Snakehips have consistently released music that feels like the slow lull in the middle of the day between the afternoon and evening. Their slow burning tracks provide a moment of repose before you get ready to head out for the night after a full day of work.
