Pacers Shooting-Guard Victor Oladipo Makes Musical Debut With "Song For You"

Pacers Shooting-Guard Victor Oladipo Makes Musical Debut With "Song For You"

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Victor Oladipo's top priority may be basketball, but that hasn't stopped the Indiana Pacers guard from pursuing another passion: singing. Before the 2016-17 season kicked off, Complex's Russ Bengtson spoke with Oladipo about his plans to potentially release a record to showcase his voice in a more formal setting. After his rendition of "I Believe I Can Fly" went viral last year, the baller makes his official R&B debut with "Song For You."

Oladipo pays homage to the Donny Hathaway classic with the soulful piano ballad, adding a new verse to give the song his own modern flair. V.O. proves he has the vocal chops to bring "Song For You" to life, a product of being brought up singing in church.

"She said it wasn't her first rodeo / So I took her shopping on Rodeo / Beamer, Benz and Bentley she wasn't impressed / So I had to show her the S on my chest," he sings. "I showed her I was simple / I admitted I was sinful / Showing off, guess that's what you get for showing off / 'Cause now I'm singing this song, song to you / Singing this song so true."

More music from Oladipo is on the way before his 2017-2018 season kicks off in Indiana, where he launched his basketball career for the Hoosiers and led them to two Sweet Sixteen appearances. Take a listen below:
