As North Carolina continues to be a manufacturer of icons, gifting the industry creatives like J. Cole, Jermaine Dupri, and Big Pooh… Now standing on the cusp of rising stardom is Charlotte’s rising star DEVN. With summer approaching listeners are craving bangers for all occasions. DEVN is unleashing heat with a new visual for his debut hit ‘Freak Freak’.
Premiering on StupidDope, ‘Freak Freak’ is a bop with a catchy hook and bouncy production. Shot by 90 Degree Filmz, glow lights and simplicity elevate the vibes generated by the track. We’ve said before it’s an R&B Summer and this visionary is delivering all the energy and feels.
This is one of those songs where I’m just like ‘F’ love. Love ain’t working out, so I’m going to go try something else. What do you do when love fails? You start showing out, and get a ‘freak freak‘.– DEVN
