My musical moments: DaniLeigh shares the soundtrack to her life
There is a reason DaniLeigh called her new album MOVIE.
A cinematic mix of rap and R&B, the 16-track LP – their second release since signing on Def Jam in 2017 – tells a rich love story that rivals any movie. On Instagram, she wrote: "When I fell in love with my SUPERSTAR for the first time, he told me I was like a girl from a FILM. Our relationship was a #FILM."
And the cast list here is seriously piled up. DaniLeigh signaled how impressed the industry is with her, pulling features from heavy-hitters like Ty Dolla $ ign, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Gunna and DaBaby. It is her relationship with this last employee – he appears on the steamy "Levi High" – that raised eyebrows among fans who believe the two are more than just coworkers.
DaniLeigh has remained a mom in terms of her relationship status, but in a recent interview with DJ Booth, she admitted that she prefers to let her music speak for her. "I'm not a great speaker when it comes to my private life, so my music is my exit to let people get to know me," she said. "It's so important to me to make sure I'm 100 percent authentic and that people know what I've been through so they can feel me. Hopefully hearing my story can heal people too."
