A Chicago MC and singer who began 2014 with bootleg remixes and ended it with a phone call from Common, Seandrea Sledge is better known as rapper Dreezy.
Rapping since she was 14, Dreezy began recording in 2012, releasing her first mixtape Schizo two years later before unleashing her remix of Nicki Minaj's "Chiraq." With Dreezy's version hitting half-a-million views in no time, she was invited to join Common on the track "Hustle Harder" from his Nobody's Smiling LP. She signed with Interscope and released a pair of EPs in 2015: Call It What You Want and From Now On. An album, No Hard Feelings, arrived in 2016 with "Body," featuring Jeremih, Dreezy's first charting single as a lead artist. The full-length debuted at number 15 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and at number 101 on the Billboard 200. ~ David Jeffries
