Andraeco Craig – aka Dre’Co was raised in a family surrounded by musical talent and inspiration, and it seemed he was always destined to pursue his love for rap. Education had to come first, but when the time came for him to decide between a nine to five or chasing his dreams, he chose his dreams – and has never looked back. A storyteller at heart, Dre’Co’s music is a patchwork of his life experiences, both good and the not so good; his hope is to serve as a beacon of hope for those who feel lost and unheard, and every one of his tracks is uplifting, and picks you up when you need it most.
His latest single, ‘Way Up’, sees him collaborate with Asia Major. The song opens with Asia Major’s chorus, and she sings the lyrics with power and intention, making it clear from the get go that both she and Dre’Co are hungry for success and will not stop until they achieve greatness.
Asia Major’s introductory verse serves as an introduction to ease into Dre’Co’s hard-hitting bars. Every line is written with precision; this motivational track strikes you when you least expect it and reminds you to hold your head up high through life’s challenges. Dre’Co is vulnerable and speaks from the heart; he knows it isn’t easy but encourages you to keep fighting.
The accompanying music video stays loyal to the song’s message of victory, and follows a boxer preparing for the big fight.
