It appears as if Drake may have expanded his OVO Sound roster with the addition of dvsn. Noah "40" Shebib, Drake's longtime collaborator and OVO Sound co-founder, shared a photo of the dvsn logo on Instagram with the caption, "@dvsndvsn @ovosound." The logo is also black and gold, colors that have become synonymous with the October's Very Own owl. What's more, all of dvsn's music is now listed under copyright through OVO Sound/Warner Bros on iTunes. This includes "Too Deep," "The Line," "With Me," and "Hallucinations."
There's also a possibility that dvsn signed a distribution deal with OVO Sound and not an outright artist deal. Our recent dive into who it could be brought up Toronto producer Nineteen85, who works frequently with Drake and is an in-house producer for OVO Sound. He's also signed to the production company M3, which is managed by Mr. Morgan and houses 40. Toronto vocalist Daniel Daley may also be involved in the mysterious R&B act. A Nineteen85 tweet leads us to believe that he is indeed involved in some way. "The line with the two dots," he tweeted a few minutes after 40 shared the Instagram post. If dvsn did sign an artist deal, the act now joins PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, and Roy Wood$ on OVO Sound, and chances are we'll be seeing their faces sometime soon. We reached out to dvsn and a rep for OVO and will update when available.
