“Negligee” & the Future
After years of anticipation, Dre Walton is finally giving the world what they’ve been waiting for… Negligee! Negligee is Dre’s first studio project and it is a guaranteed classic.

Though each track is still full of ingenuity,Negligee emphasizes the maturation of Dre Walton as an artist. Every track on Negligee is a “baby maker!” The lyrics are relatable, the production is soothing and Dre sings each cord like it’s his last. When asked about his next step in music Dre Walton responded, “I just want to do my part in bringing real R&B back to the forefront.” Dre Walton is the breath of fresh air that R&B has been waiting on. There isn’t another artist like him… Period
