Emerging Artist

We have a debut to look at this week as 21-year-old Chicago rapper Dreezy (Debut #8) starts near the top of the chart. Signed with Interscope Records her EP, From Now On, was released in December and her new single, Body (ft. Jeremih), is off to a fast start at Urban radio where it is already in the Top 30. Prior to her jump to the major Dreezy made her mark  on the Chicago scene beginning in 2012, eventually gaining wider attention via her remix of Nicky Minaj’s ChiRaq (ft. Lil Herb). She then collaborated with local legend Common on his tenth album while dropping a couple of well-received mixtapes, Business N Pleasure and Schizo.
