Dreams – [HeyDeon]

By Chuck Ramos // 17 Jan 2019

I have the pleasure of introducing the Lyrical Lemonade community to an extremely talented artist by the name of HeyDeon. Combining all the best elements of hip-hop and R&B, HeyDeon creates a hybrid style that can only be found by listening to his music. His newest single, “Dreams,” is a reaffirmation of his hustle and the reasoning behind all the moves he has been making up until this point. The track begins softly with a set of piano keys leading it in until a faint bass kicks in providing the necessary bounce to the uplifting anthem. This is the Eastside Long Beach MC’s latest offering since his last project, Long Story Short, released in late November of last year. Listen to HeyDeon’s new track below and make sure to leave us your thoughts on the Long Beach artist in the comment section!
