Dustystaytrue takes pride in beating the odds. The 22-year-old artist hails from New Haven, Connecticut — a city where he grew up witnessing two different worlds: one full of affluence and opportunity, and another full of crime and generational curses. Throughout his childhood, he was more accustomed to the latter. Carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders from a young age, he turned to music as a form of therapy. Inspired by the likes of Lauryn Hill, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Kanye West, DMX, and Drake, he dedicated himself to his craft and learned to appreciate his adversities for shaping him into a resilient, one-of-a-kind talent destined for success. In the grand scheme of things, Dustystaytrue is only getting started, but he’s already reached heights that many can only dream of. In just a year’s time, he’s amassed millions of listeners thanks to hits that boast his vocals and versatility, such as “Never Change,” “Outta Time,” “Talk Tough,” and “Solar System.” While these masterful cuts quickly became fan favorites, they also grabbed the attention of the industry at large. Dustystaytrue landed a track on EARMILK’s Best Songs of 2020 list, and he’s received additional praise from publications such as ELEVATOR while becoming a mainstay on many premier playlists. For the fall of 2021, Dustystaytrue was tapped to go on tour with rising star Toosii, alongside fellow up-and-comers such as Lakeyah.
Up-and-coming Connecticut recording artist Dustystaytrue makes big strides in his career with the release of his Toosii-featured new single and music video, “Reflections.” In the artist’s third release of 2023, Dusty and Toosii remember the trials and tribulations that come with running the streets while basking in the warm embrace of newfound love. Toosii and Dusty link up in the studio to cut the record in designer fabrics and glacier-cold jewelry from head to toe.
Directed by 12AM, “Reflections” appears on Dustystaytrue’s latest album, Talk More Soon, which includes hit songs “Iron Man” and “Sauce Me Down.” Both the new single and album are available now on all streaming platforms via South Coast Music Group.
