Honey-Voiced YouTube Sensation Devvon Terrell Releases Weird Nights, An Accomplished R&B Album
Billboard Premieres “Temperature,” The Social Media Star’s Intimate New Music Video, To Accompany the Album’s Release
An eccentric personality with the voice of an angel, Devvon Terrell gained a devoted following by remixing popular songs on YouTube. Today, Devvon answers the prayers of his legion of fans by sharing Weird Nights, his latest full-length collection of original material. A thirteen-track collection of hazy memories and meaningful experiences, Weird Nights is a diverse and accomplished artistic statement, well-positioned to please his social media followers and win new fans alike. Featuring highlights like the wistful “6 ‘O Clock,” recalling Devvon’s childhood curfew imposed by his mother, the confident “Cougar,” about his experiences with an older woman, and the inspirational “To Be Great,” Weird Nights is a masterclass in R&B songwriting, anchored by Devvon’s voice, alternating between rhythmic cadences and impressive vocal runs. Available to purchase on iTunes, Weird Nights is perfectly positioned to translate Devvon Terrell’s internet celebrity into IRL fame.
With over 1.5 million fans on Facebook and over 800k subscribers on YouTube, Devvon Terrell gained internet notoriety by providing his own spin on popular songs, adding a verse of his own lyrics and nailing the chorus with his vocal acrobatics. His videos average over 700,000 views per post, with covers of “Work” by Rihanna, “679” by Fetty Wap, and “Sorry” by Justin Bieber as some of his most popular uploads. Devvon’s social media savvy, nimble flow, and old-school R&B chops make him an ideal pop star for 2017.
To accompany the album’s release, Devvon Terrell shares “Temperature,” the first music video from the project. Capturing Devvon in a neon-lit hotel room with a video vixen, the “Temperature” video is an intimate and compelling depiction of one of his titular “weird nights.” “Temperature” is a expertly crafted slow jam about a complicated relationship and one of the album’s highlights, lending some heat to the tail end of the track order. Directed and shot by Devvon himself, the Billboard-premiered video showcases a more serious and romantic side of Devvon that often does not come across in his YouTube videos.
