R&B newcomer Dez knows how to make a first impression. The Virginia-bred singer, born Dezmond Armstead, caters to the ladies on his debut mixtape Real Talk. The 14 tracks feature the single “We Ride,” along with an appearance from Ma$e (“Can’t Get Enough”).
Inspired by Usher and Bobby Brown, Dez moved to Los Angeles after high school and linked up with production duo The Movement (Justin Bieber, Jesse McCartney), who helmed the project.
“Real Talk is more than just songs to entertain and make money,” said Dez. “It’s pieces of who I am and the things I’ve gone through. It’s about the real things we all go through. The genuine and non-genuine decisions we make for love. It’s my hope, my light, my mistakes and my hate.”
