DaniLeigh has a bubbly personality with a lot of energy. We all knew her back when she released her EP Summer With Friends. Over the summer, we got familiar with the “All I Know” singer by releasing the “Lil’ Bebe” hit single that went up the charts. We had the pleasure of interviewing her and by talking about her album, The Plan, how she got Lil’ Baby on her hit single “Lil’ Bebe” remix, her challenges by making her visual “Blue Chips” come to light and many more.
Peep the interview below.
RESPECT.: You performed in Brooklyn a few days ago and performed, how was the energy and vibe like out there?
It was dope! They were coming for me with a lot of energy. The love was there. It is hard to capture.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
Loving someone equals respect. When you treat and do for someone is always a sign, as well.
RESPECT.: With your hit single, “Lil Bebe,” what is your definition of the single? How did it come about with you and Lil’ Baby as being a remix?
The definition is talking good about yourself. It’s the emotion and dance that makes the constant vibe. Lil’ Baby was always a feature. I put a video up on Instagram, and he ended up commenting on and doing it.
RESPECT.: With your new album, The Plan, that has came out, what was your expectations from this album? Why did you name the album as such?
The album has plenty of vibes. It took me one year to record 12 records, that consists of, my feelings, my Dominican culture side and many more. It is everything that I had gone through.
RESPECT.: y announcing the ‘Be Yourself’ tour, what are we going to expect from you on this tour, as well as, why did you call it such as for the namesake?
You should always be yourself at all time. By being yourself is a powerful thing. The whole brand is about being you on how you want to be by dressing a certain way and etc. I have been denied due to how I was dressed, but it is who I am.
RESPECT.: By doing the visual for “Blue Chips,” tell us your hardest thing to do? What was your most challenging thing?
The hardest thing was being in the cold water. It was definitely a challenging moment by singing my verse under water. It was something I always wanted to do.
RESPECT.: You are on the No. 1 Latin charts because of your co-penmanship, did you expect that at all with the success of your career?
I didn’t know it will do well with the people who are on it. I was super happy with my reaction, and it was a major accomplishment. I love being a songwriter behind the scenes.
RESPECT.: If you were a fan of yourself of your own music, what single would be the first to introduce them to your music?
“Lil’ Bebe” because it sounds different with enjoyment and creativity.
