Long Island-bred singer/songwriter/producer Drama Relax shares an addictively catchy single called “On the Side.” Released via Rule #1/Interscope Records, and produced by Oren Yoel (Miley Cyrus, XXXTenacion & more), the smooth and soulful track delivers Drama Relax’s signature brand of deeply confessional R&B.

Directed by Kenny Okagaki, the video for “On the Side” features a beautifully dreamy color palette and adds a new layer of emotion to Drama Relax’s lyrics — a candid expression of romantic frustration and doubt. With its moody beats and delicate textures, the song again reveals Drama Relax’s supreme skill in matching his perfectly crafted melodies with heart-on-sleeve honesty.
“My goal with my music is to help people understand the situations they’re going through,” says Drama Relax. “I want them to know that even if you have a bad breakup, it’s gonna be okay, because so many other people are dealing with the same thing. If you can have that awareness and that perspective, it makes everything so much better in the long run.”
“On the Side” marks Drama Relax’s first new music since his debut EP Lonely, a three-track project released in October. His recent triumphs also include landing a song on the hugely popular 13 Reasons Why (Season 3) soundtrack: “All That” featuring Chicago singer/songwriter Jeremih, an undeniably infectious track that’s now surpassed 3.2 million streams on Spotify.
About Drama Relax:
Growing up on Long Island, Drama Relax started making music in eighth grade, largely inspired by Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III. After spending his high school years building his beat-making skills and self-releasing a series of mixtapes, he pushed forward with his music by producing and selling beats online. Once he’d amassed a sizable following on YouTube, Drama Relax began sharing his own music and steadily grew a fanbase on SoundCloud. His songs soon drew the attention of Interscope Geffen A&M Executive Vice President Joie Manda, which led to his signing to Interscope in fall 2018.
