Listen: Caretaker (extended version) - @ONLY1DRAM featuring @SZA

It's safe to say it's been an eventful week for VA native, D.R.A.M.

To keep it a buck, I agree with D.R.A.M. The first time I heard Drake's record, Hotline Bling on the radio I thought it was just a cover of the former's hit song Cha Cha. Instead of really debating the issue he got back to work in studio to make an extended version of Caretaker. We first heard it on the Chance the Rapper/Donnie Trumpet & Social Experiment collaboration project Surf which I reviewed awhile back. This time he enlists the talent of Jersey native, SZA. She blesses the remix of this lovely in a response to D.R.A.M. He then adds some new riffs and runs vocally that is similar to the live performance. This is the first single off his upcoming mixtape Gahdamn! which is slated to drop next week. Listen to the extended mix of Caretaker below.
