Brooklyn-based performer and recording artist, Daniel Victor is ready to share his story with his unique, genre-bending, new single, “Believe Me”.
Fusing pop-star energy, with his hip-hop wordsmithing, this motivating, bass-heavy track is sure to hit differently. Daniel explains in a recent interview, fans can expect a little something different compared to his recent EP, Nice Guys Still Finish. “This song is not like the EP, it’s on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Growing up, I fell in love with lyricism, I fell in love with that gritty hip-hop sound, like Slaughterhouse, Royce da 5’9”, and Eminem. This is a record that brings me back to that place- I felt like I was ready to bring my music back to the hip-hop roots that originally inspired me. This is definitely a single that is on the hard side, it pumps you up, it ramps you up, it gets you in the zone!”
Victor fell in love with poetry and music at a young age and was captivated by creative storytelling. As he and his music matured, he gravitated towards artists like Luke Christopher, Jon Bellion and J. Cole, whose vivid, personal storytelling and clever lyricism initially captured his interest. Like a lot of artists, Daniel’s lyrics are rooted in life experiences and past events. His own marriage of hip-hop and pop music (that he affectionately refers to as “hip-pop”) is a direct result of his eclectic and wide-spanning musical palate.
Looking towards the future, (when able to leave the house without a mask), Daniel explains that he is using this quiet time to hit the ground running, finishing a variety of new projects he’s excited about. He hopes to work on perfecting his live show, in anticipation of a post Covid-19 world. On top of that, he’s hinted that listeners can expect more music in the coming months, with a goal of releasing more original music in 2020 than any other year previously. “I want to dial and dive into it- I want to work more on production and assembling a team so that I can move towards creating a more consistent body of work.”
