Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo may be known for his skills on the basketball court, but as of this week, he wants to be known for something more – his singing.
Oladipo said he believes he has a gift for singing and wanted to share it, he told Complex.
"Ain’t too many NBA players who are actually really good at singing," he told Complex shortly before the start of the 2016-2017 NBA season. "There’s a lot of rappers, but not too many singers. I think it could be something special, so maybe one day."
Oladipo’s new single “Song For You” is a remix of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for you”.
"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," he told Complex via email. "If not then you're doing yourself and Him a disservice."
