Singer/rapper D.R.A.M., most famously known for his record ‘Cha Cha’, is currently on a huge tour with Chicago’s Chance The Rapper. But don’t think a big tour is going to stop him from putting out new music, as today he released his new record, titled ‘Caretaker (Extended)’. Featuring TDE singer, SZA, this collaboration is a extended version from Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment’s album Surf and it is awesome! You’ll be able to find this one on D.R.A.M.’s forthcoming EP GAHDAMN!, which drops in just a few days on October 23rd.

Stream ‘Caretaker (Extended)’ below and peep our photos of D.R.A.M. and Chance’s Milwaukee stop on their Family Matters tour.

One of our favorite things about Lollapalooza is its aftershows. The aftershows not only allow fans who weren’t able to score wristbands to the actual festival to also see some great sets, but it showcases the beautiful intimate local venues (Aragon, The Mid, The Riviera and more) of our nation’s Second City, Chicago. This year’s Lollapalooza Aftershows are just as great as ever, with a number of performances that we recommend catching. Performing official Lollapalooza Aftershows this year are Alesso, Tove Lo, Gary Clark Jr., The War on Drugs, Glass Animals, alt-J, SZA, Mick Jenkins, Marina and the Diamonds, Logic and many more!
