Making Moves and Getting the Club Moving, “Slide Out” is Bound to be the Latest Club Hit
Orlando, FL – Video is a performer that turns heads. A Florida native, the artist was raised with music in his bones. His mother and aunt, two talented gospel singers, set a heavy influence and so music was inevitable for Video, who finally decided to “entertain his calling” and pursue music as a career. Video is no stranger to the art of writing, and began putting pen to paper at a young age. A published author of three books, the musician’s background in writing has helped him craft his musical writing style.
The artist, influenced by the smooth musical prowess of Usher, is motivated by the concept of unifying genres and listeners by prompting everyone to dance and enjoy his music – no matter their demographic. Says Video of Usher, “He connects with the people, and continues to stay relevant by connecting with more than one genre.” Video’s exceptional ability to span genre and sound allow him to enter the ears of all kinds of listeners, and his music often makes the jump from fun and edgy to dark and disturbing – offering something for everyone. One song off his latest project Momentum entitled “SlideOut” is a club hit for people to dance to. A connoisseur of fun, the artist wrote the single (which appears on his newest album, Momentum) to inspire everyone in and out of the club to “have fun,” which is Video’s primary M.O. The song accompanies a dance move, which is simple and embodies “old school partying – it’s simple and catchy,” laughs Video. The song is exciting and lively, and has an EDM edge, which gives it a wide reach for listeners of all backgrounds and musical persuasions.
The straightforward, fun-loving artist’s main mission is to connect with others – to make music that inspires and reaches them. “To connect with fans, you have to be honest,” explains Video, “You don’t just sell your music. You sell your Brand, your character and your lifestyle.”
