New Music: Victor Oladipo – Songs For You (EP)
Although he’s gearing up for the start of the regular season, NBA player Victor Oladipo has just released his debut musical project “Songs for You”. The EP is a 7-track dose of silky smooth, grown-and-sexy R&B.
With an expressive, honeyed singing voice honed by years of singing in church and college talent shows, Songs For You proves that Victor Oladipo is no mere dilettante in the R&B space, but a charismatic and versatile performer.
Featuring diverse tracks like the Soul throwback and Donny Hathaway homage “Song For You,” the catchy ’90s-style funk of “Still Want You,” and the inspirational anthem “Rope a Dope,” Songs For You is an uncommonly charming and refined album for those who wish that modern R&B singers would focus more on melody than rhythm. Premiered by PUB and distributed by EMPIRE, Songs For You features guest appearances from 2 Chainz and Eric Bellinger.
