Chicago based duo DRAMA – aka producer Na’el Shehade and vocalist Via Rosa – gives us the perfect excuse to dance with our ugly crying face with their new single “Hold On.” Through dripping glimmering tears of synths and hazy air of R&B, “Hold On” showers you with the shards of a broken heart while indulging into a dancefloor euphoria. The siren-like vocals of Via adds a layer of elegance to it, evoking a feeling of optimism and coolness amidst the emotional turmoil. Enjoy:

“For me, it’s an anthem. It’s what anyone’s friends would say if the love of their life left them,” explained Via. “It’s a reminder for myself to keep loving.”

Currently signed to Ghostly International, “Hold On” is a taste of their upcoming 2020 debut for their new label. You can catch the duo live with SG Lewis this fall:
