DAW$ Drops New Single “Why You Care”


DAW$ is a fast emerging Hip-hop artist from the small town of Elmsmere, Kentucky. The singer, songwriter, rapper and producer made his professional debut in 2020 with the single “Been Through Alot.” On the confessional Emo Trap song, the 22 year-old singer looked back on the hard road he has already taken through his young life.

Since then DAW$ has dropped three additional singles, including “On My Own” and 2021’s “Martian.” With each new release he further defines and solidifies his distinctive style. With a unique spin on the genre, he mixes soulful vocals with melodic backing tracks featuring classical instruments and arrangements. 

I fell in love with the process of making melodies and creating a vibe that will help get people through the day.


“Why You Care” is the latest single from DAW$, released worldwide to all major streaming services on July 31, 2021. The song opens on the dark and dramatic tones of a minor-key piano progression. Soon the beat drops on a hard, downtempo Trap groove. Piano arpeggios spin through the mix as distant horns float on the horizon. Meanwhile the rapper drops a melodic freestyle about loyalty, memories and life on the street.
