On July 15th, she released her debut album No Hard Feelings which tells the story of her leaving a toxic relationship, entering a new one and battling with her conflicting emotions about both guys.
Dreezy rolls up to her man’s house to see what her friend was talking about and sees him with another woman. He tells her “That’s My Cousin” but of course Dreezy doesn’t believe him and goes off. On the next song Dreezy promises that she’s always ready to set it off like Jada Pinkett and she will “Spazz” if necessary.
The single “Body” featuring Jeremih is a fun and sexy song about pursuing a sexual conquest. Dreezy has described the song as the best of both worlds. It’s a fun song but it is still sexy. “I like it because it’s a hard song—it’s called "catch a body” but it’s on a sexy, soft beat. It’s the best of both worlds"
Following her night out, Dreezy has 13 voicemails on her phone and realizes they are all from “Drunk Jamal.” He starts off by saying he wants to see her and have sex with her. He then apologizes for all the lying and cheating he’s done and promises he’s a changed man. When he doesn’t hear anything from Dreezy he starts accusing her of sleeping with someone else and becomes increasingly angry. The skit closes out with him repeatedly screaming her name and telling her to answer the phone.
After listening to all 13 of Jamal’s messages, Dreezy realizes that he only wants her and her time or calls her when he’s “Wasted.”
Dreezy lets her man know that she isn’t buying any of the lines he’s feeding her and she’s not that easy. She tells him to save the game for someone else because he can’t “Afford My Love.” The song features a verse from Wale.
“Don’t Know Me” was originally featured on her EP Call It What You Want. Dreezy feels her respect musically is overdue. She reflects on how she always knew she was destined for greatness and she packed up everything with little money because she believed in something even though she couldn’t see it. Her faith allowed her to reach for her dreams.
On “Da Guys (Sean Skit),” we are introduced to Sean who is telling his boys what happened between Dreezy and Jamal. He tells them that she went over to his house and beat up him and the other woman. Sean also says that Jamal didn’t know what he had with Dreezy because she is a bad bitch.
Dreezy describes herself as a “Bad Bitch” because she isn’t your average. She goes for what she wants and hustles for everything she has. She defines a bad bitch as a woman who has her own money and crib. She calls out all the catfishes who like to flex on social media but are broke in real life.
While Dreezy has her flaws and can admit that she isn’t perfect, she knows that she is “Worth It.”
On the song “See What You On,” Dreezy realizes there’s something about this guy that she can’t figure out and she doesn’t want to leave him alone.
Dreezy offers up the tea on the skit “What’s da Tea?” She is no longer dealing with Jamal because she’s tired of his lies and cheating ways but there is a new man in her life named Sean who treats her right and makes her happy.
Dreezy desires to get close to Sean physically and emotionally. T-Pain joins her on the single “Close to You” and their voices pair together perfectly. She is really feeling Sean and is “Ready” to take things to the next step whenever he is.
On “Sean vs. Jamal,” Sean tells his boys that he is feeling Dreezy and she is wifey. While he is talking with his boys, Jamal approaches in a rage and Sean and Jamal get into an altercation that results in gunshots being fired.
Dreezy finds herself in a tough position because she still misses her ex and how he holds her although she knows she should leave him alone. She wishes she could have the best of both worlds and continue seeing both men. She doesn’t want to “Break the News” but she finds it hard to choose between the two.
A year ago Dreezy’s believers were missing and she worked even harder to prove the doubters wrong. People tried to break her down but she doesn’t care because she knows she’s “Invincible.”
Perhaps the most stimulating thing about Dreezy is her determination not to limit herself or her sound. She can transition from going hard on one song to singing about love on the next and it flows effortlessly. With so little female representation in the rap game, it’s always nice to hear new artists, especially artists that are relatable. Dreezy manages to take a story that many have likely experienced and put her own personal spin and personality into it to make it something entertaining and fun.
