Charlotte, North Carolina’s R&B newcomer DEVN introduced his singular sound with the release of his debut EP St. Luke St. in July, 2021. Since then, the singer/songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist stayed relatively quiet until the recent release of his latest single “WILD“. Today (8/15/2022), almost exactly one year since his guest feature on Dreamville rapper Lute‘s record “Myself“, DEVN shares the official Cinecerly-directed music video for his new single. Produced by Arnold Obonyo, “the song is about being wildly in love, and romantically obsessed with someone”, says DEVN. The video plays out over the track’s subdued instrumentals, complimented by tinted lighting, and capped by an unexpected twist.
The St. Luke St. EP is a masterwork of contemporary R&B and Trap Soul, infused with Afrobeats and Pop Rap. The project’s lyrics were freestyled, yet inspired by general ideas and real-life experiences during DEVN’s formative years, which he has extensively journaled about over the years.
