Yes, you read that right.
Yes, I was just as utterly shocked as you.
The first time I heard the song I didn’t think it was that good to be quite frank with you.
But that was before I knew it was Victor Oladipo singing. Apparently I have a soft spot of NBA artists because I now can’t stop listening to his soothing voice.
The song is called Song For You (A cover of Donny Hathaway’s song)
You can listen to the song here: https://soundcloud.com/victoroladipo/tracks
It was uploaded 6 days ago and has 137k listens, half of which are from me alone.
He goes by the name V.O. This is his only song he has on both his SoundCloud and Apple Music but I’m assuming he has other unreleased work or that he is working on a bigger project.
He put the genus as R&B & Soul if we want to get specific.
If I had to summarize the song, I would say that he wants to sing to this girl that he really likes and only to her. She probably isn’t that famous and might not think that she is famous enough to be with him. Oladipo references that when he says he’s acted out his life in front of 10,000 people but he just wants to be with her. But I’m not sure if she’s having it.
Too bad the Indiana Pacers still didn’t win the Paul George Trade.
And Damian Lillard is still the best current NBA artist.
Apparently Oladipo has an EP on the way.
Here are more videos of Oladipo singing:
