"Cha Cha" is a classicIt's a classic for so many reasons, but the biggest is a toss up between the fact that it's based on a loop from Super Mario World and this video of Beyoncé doing her happy dance to it. It's just feel good music.

"Cash Money" sounds like every Megachurch preacher's collection plate anthem
D.R.A.M. stands for Does. Real. Ass. Music.Because who doesn't love a good acronym.

Having a childlike enthusiasm about anything is the best approach to lifeD.R.A.M. reminds me of my first crush with his single "Cute." Pitchfork says it best, "D.R.A.M.’s fluttering melodies are as endearing as ever. It’s hard not to smile." Like D.R.A.M., SZA also reminds me of how whimsical and carefree being youthful is. And this D.R.A.M. and SZA collab is magical.
D.R.A.M. on being true yourself and taking advantage of opportunity:
"When someone gets passed that mic and they know deep down inside that they wanna say something or sing something or produce something but they don't do that, it's like killing your musical life. It's suicide. That's one thing I definitely have learned in this music sh*t. As soon as I feel something, I act on it. I gotta stay true to my feelings, you know?
