There's been this talk about the status of R&B balladry in what some have claimed is a post R&B world. You've probably heard the talk about the slow jam going the way of the dinosaur - existing only museums or oldie radio stations.

Well, for Daniel Daley and Nineteen85, the Canadian artists who make up the duo Dvsn, those kind of forumaltions just don't add up. These brothers speak the language of love, romance and sensuality with fluency and passion.

We heard that from the moment we heard those first dissonant piano notes on and that ephermeral falsetto on the funky bedroom ballad "Mood," thier hit from 2017 that had originally had some speculating that a new gem had emerged from the voluminous catalog of the late, great Prince Rogers Nelson.

Now, this duo has blessed us again, this time with a remake of "Use Somebody" tune from alt-rockers The Kings of Leon. The original with its pounding bass line, slashing guitars and gravelly vocals has an anthematic sound of a man putting out a cry for help to the world. The call for help is more specific and intimate in Dvsn's version but the sweet yearning heard in Daley's tenor is no less urgent. "Use Somebody" is a single from duo's upcoming album Amusing Her Feelings
