Toronto’s secret formula is out! A rising young R&B talent with silky vocals and prodigious skills as a songwriter, RealestK makes his grand entrance with his new tape Dreams 2 Reality’. Out today via Columbia Records, the new mixtape is a potent fusion of dark trap ballads and unashamed emotional transparency, featuring jams like “Leave Me Alone” alongside tender hitting tracks like “I Think I Do” and “Bruce Wayne”. An accomplished songwriter with a RIAA gold-certification under his belt, the Lebanese star named the mixtape as a glimpse inside the mind of a young man trying to find his way in the world while also navigating newfound fame. Featuring production from Rodrigo Barahona (Giveon), Serg Dior(Blxst), BORDEAUX, legendary Canadian hit-maker Money Musik and more, Dreams 2 Reality is a fully realized artistic effort showcasing RealestK’s considerable talents with melody and providing the ideal soundtrack for this heartbreak season.  

Explains RealestK “Dreams 2 Realitycame from my manifestation process within my career so far. 8 months prior to signing and releasing “WFM”, I got my first tattoo which says Dreams 2 Reality because it represents my manifestation of chasing my dreams and making them come to life. Every time I look at that tattoo, it clicks in full circle.”

With an emotional connection to music, RealestK’s in-tune with his feelings have nurtured his entire life. The son of Lebanse immigrants, he grew up watching his father, a construction worker, moonlight as an Arabic singer. While songs from 50 Cent, Eminem, Michael Jackson, and Nas played on consistent rotation in his house thanks to his older brother, there were two newcomers that were also from his hometown that captured K’s vision of true artistry —Drake and The Weeknd. Admiring the heartfelt yet deft lyricism and raw glimpses into human vices, K used that skill to create his own story using those same elements that captured him as a true R&B lover. While taking advantage of the COVID-19 lockdown’s audience, K released his song “SWM” striking a chord with fans who gravitated to his melancholy yet gentle style. The song’s sequel “WFM” climbed even higher, almost immediately amassing millions of streams, and going viral on social platforms including Instagram & TikTok. Landing on Apple Music and Spotify’s Global Charts “WFM” earned K his first Billboard Hot 100 with the long landing at #75. Accumulating over 76.2 million views on YouTube, RealestK has established himself as a rising superstar as an artist and songwriter, cementing that with Dreams 2 Reality available now on all DSP’s.
