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.

This “Love & Hip Hop” Star Is Calling Out Racism — And Colorism

It’s a scene all too common in the entertainment industry: A male producer tells a female musician she needs to change her appearance in order to be successful.

This time, when the interaction unfolded during the premiere of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” on Jan. 1, the female artist pushed back.

Dominican-American singer Amara La Negra walked out as her male castmate made racist comments — that her Afro wasn’t elegant, for example — and instantly put herself on the American pop culture map. She announced she signed with the record label BMG, and landed an appearance on the widely-syndicated hip-hop radio show The Breakfast Club.

During that interview, she again shot down ignorant comments from the hosts, who asked if she was imagining the colorism she says she’s always experienced in her community because she has dark skin.

“Being a Latina that looks like myself in the Latin industry is very hard,” Amara told VICE News. “And I never would have imagined that talking about it would open this worldwide conversation.”

Now, she’s getting ready to record her first album and take her shot at the American market — while promoting her underrepresented Afro-Latino culture along the way.

Watch her full VICE News interview above.
