Dev’s New Single Is Lowkey

We lowkey love Dev’s latest single.


Dev is back.

If your brain needs refreshing, Dev is the soaring voice behind 2011’s “Bass Down Low” and Far East Movement’s hit “Like A G6” featuring The Cataracts. Since then, Dev’s dropped a handful of songs, including the No. 11 charting song “In the Dark” and a two-part EP titled Bittersweet July in 2014. Today (Jan. 27), she returns with a new tune titled “Lowkey.” It features minimal production, boasting gorgeous harp instrumentation and robotized processed vocals as she talk-sings: “I needa girl who’ll keep it lowkey / Up late night eatin’ Macaroni / And she ain’t worried about the old me.”

The slinky production is reminiscent of the gold Dreamlab, Lambroza and Monson cooked up for Selena Gomez’s “Good For You.” It’s a bit repetitive, but it gets the message across. It’s a bit repetitive, but it gets the message across: Keep it lowkey.
