Meet Hip-Hop’s New Rising Star: Danileigh

Danileigh isn’t new to the entertainment industry. Discovered by Prince at the age of 18, she went viral last year after sharing her version of Drake’s ‘In My Feelings’ challenge. The Dominican-American hip hop and R&B singer is also a dancer, creative director and songwriter who helped pen J.Lo and Cardi-B’s “Dinero” single.

The popularity of Danileigh’s breakout song ‘Lil Bebe’ stretched way past its initial release with remixes with rapper Lil Baby and most recently, Latin trap stars Rauw Alejandro and Nio Garcia who featured in the song’s Spanish version, Bebecito.

A fan of collaboration, she’s not afraid of recognizing real talent in her peers. Danileigh exudes the same energy talking about Gunna’s new album Drip or Drown 2 as she does talking about herself. “It’s fire. It’s a vibe” she says. “You could just press shuffle and every song is lit.”

She believes Millennials see artists’ visual art then decide if it’s worth a listen. “Boogie is crazy with his visuals” she says. “He’s definitely going to blow up.”

Number 76 is one of several pilot schools in the city where a Latin alphabet consisting of 32 letters is being test driven for the country’s state language, Kazakh, which has been written in Cyrillic for nearly 80 years. The long-planned return to Latin, which Kazakh was briefly written in from 1927 after the Bolsheviks phased out Arabic scripts for a number of non-Slavic languages, should be completed by 2025.
