Dri is an all-around musical talent and vocal powerhouse, and this will be popularly recognized in the EP’s lead single. Even though all 5 tracks are equally as good and relatable, Dri Jack says, “Space” is the focus track from The Other Side. Once you get out of that gray area after a hard period in your life, where you feel like it’s something missing, you find that you were the missing piece all along.”
