DaniLeigh drops off vibrant "Lil Bebe" video.
DaniLeigh has been hard at work for the past couple of years, earning co-signs from the likes of the late Aretha Franklin and even working directly with Prince. But, her introduction to the majority of the public came this year when the budding singer-songwriter took part in Drake's "In My Feelings" challenge.
The video of the New Yorker dancing alongside a moving car earned her the attention of the Champagne Papi himself, with Drake gifting the young star with tickets to his show in Chicago and even sitting down to chat with Dani. "That right there was a confirmation that I’m about to do big things in the industry and I’m steadily getting recognition from all these legends," she tells Billboard of the experience.
With the newfound notioriety, DaniLeigh has been steadily focused on the ultimate mission with her music and dropped off her "Lil Bebe" single shortly after. While the song gained a moderate buzz throughout the summer, the Def Jam single now returns with a colorul new video to supplement the cut.
"I was very involved with the video. I definitely saw a vision," Dani tells Billboard of the new clip. "What works for me on my socials and everything and what people tend to gravitate towards is when I show my personality, style, and my dancing. [...] This video represents me because of the setting, but also people I know are in the video as well. Some cameos I had included Trey Songz, Rotimi from Power, my girl YesJulz, Kamaiyah, and more. It was dope to have my people in the video and see them pulling up for me. I wanted to bring everyone through an experience."
