NBA Star Victor Oladipo Drops Debut Single “Song For You”

Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo has been turning heads on the basketball court for years now, but he’s now ready to embark on a music career to accompany it. After his rendition of “I Believe I Can Fly” went viral last year, the baller drops his debut single, “Song For You.”

Oladipo pays homage to the Donny Hathaway classic with this soulful piano ballad, adding a new verse to give the song a 2017 flair.

Oladipo wants to prove he has the vocal chops, a product of being raised singing in church growing up. Explains Oladipo, “What inspired me to put out my own music now is that I believe it is a gift of mine and when God blesses you with a gift you should share it with others. If not then you’re doing yourself and Him a disservice. Donny Hathaway is one of my favorite artists and ‘A Song For You’ is one of the songs I could really relate to so in honor of him I remixed his version of the song and flipped it into a modern day story of something someone might go through today in the second half.”

Stream below and let us know if you think Oladipo has the vocal chops:
