The up-and-comer’s debut EP, Take Me Serious, dropped last March 2018, amassing 21m+ Spotify streams and counting. In April 2018, DDG showed fans his musical versatility, releasing the R&B song “Arguments,” which already has 21m+ plays on YouTube and 6m streams on Spotify. His latest song, “Run It Up,” features YBN Nahmir, G-Herbo and Blac Youngsta.
