Announcing that their upcoming mixtape, Cheers To The Best Memories, will release this weekend, the trio prepares to takeover R&B’s soundscape once more — rolling out the project with teaser videos and tons of activity on social media.
Taking to Twitter, dvsn had let their fans choose the name for the mixtape, as “Cheers To The Best Memories” will seemingly provide good times and good vibes all around upon its release.

The trio has also released another single in “Memories,” holding over fans until the mixtape officially hits streaming Friday.
OVO Sound’s dvsn is coming off a strong 2020. Releasing their third studio album A Muse In Her Feelings last April, the Toronto-based collective of producer Nineteen85 and singer Daniel Daley thrive on being more concise than most, sequencing sounds that best fit their constant blend of hip-hop and R&B.
Ty Dolla $ign has been nothing but consistent his entire career. Finding pockets in both hip-hop and R&B, Ty’s latest effort Featuring Ty Dolla $ign is an immaculate mix of the two genres he resides in. With features from Kanye West, Kid Cudi, Post Malone, Anderson. Paak, Future, Young Thug, Lil Durk and more, Ty Dolla ultimately flipped the script on himself — enlisting big-name features instead of being the one called in for guest spots.
For the two of these R&B heavyweights to collide, it only makes sense that Ty and dvsn impeccable chemistry would be on full display for an LP.
As far as CTBM’s single “I Believed It,” Mac Miller’s feature brought forth heartwarming emotions in his first posthumous appearance in over a year. Miller’s genius lies within his affection for the uncanny nuances found in funk, R&B and hip-hop. His 2020 posthumous release in Circles was a curtain call on his career, as the Pittsburgh native’s final words were written in circles. Audibly fighting to better himself, Miller’s ragged yet hopeful tone perceives this as a complete picture for his life — leaning more into his singing ability than ever before.
Miller’s verse felt familiar yet otherwordly, as dvsn released the visuals to “I Believed It” the next day — releasing never before seen footage of Ty, dvsn and Miller all in the studio together.
With this in mind, both singles brought forth an emotionally uplifting performance — as dvsn, Ty look to continue their celebration this weekend.
Cheers to the memories we all continue to make.
