The Indiana Pacers Star/R&B Singer Shares “One Day,” a Romantic New Visual Amidst His Breakout NBA Season
With a singing voice as smooth as his jumpshot, Victor Oladipo is one of the NBA’s brightest young stars. After being traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Indiana Pacers in the offseason in exchange from Paul George, fans wondered if Victor would be able to fill the departing superstar’s shoes. In his breakout 2017/18 season, Victor answered fans’ concerns with aplomb, posting career highs in every major statistical category and leading the Pacers into playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Victor currently ranks 11th in the NBA in scoring, with his 24.6 Points Per Game, and raised his field goal percentage and three-point shooting percentage by 500 points. With his tremendous year-over-year improvement, his impressive statistics, his recent turn as the inspiration for NBA Twitter’s latest meme, and his role as the unquestioned alpha dog of a surprising playoff contender, Victor Oladipo is an excellent choice to be your starting All-Star shooting guard for the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

As a special gift for his fans and All-Star voters, Victor shares “One Day,” a new music video. A guitar-drenched R&B slow jam, “One Day” is a pledge of devotion to his beloved, sweetly recounting a story of unrequited love eventually returned. The video finds Vic flexing in a stylish jacket, intercut with clips of Vic’s happy relationship. “One Day” is a highlight form Songs For You, Victor’s debut EP, which features appearances from 2 Chainz and Eric Bellinger and finds the NBA star showcasing his hidden talent. Featuring diverse tracks like the Soul throwback and Donny Hathaway homage “Song For You,” the catchy ’90s-style funk of “Still Want You,” and the inspirational anthem “Rope a Dope,” Songs For You is an uncommonly charming and refined album for those who wish that modern R&B singers would focus more on melody than rhythm.

Victor Oladipo Background
Victor Oladipo (born May 4, 1992) is an American professional basketball player for the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Born and raised in Maryland right outside of Washington D.C.; he was drafted as the second overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft by the Orlando Magic and went on to be named to the NBA All-Rookie first team. Victor Oladipo’s first four seasons in the NBA have been impressive; Career averages of 15.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4 assists per game suggest it’s only a matter of time before he’s an All-Star. Winning the 2016-2017 Dunk of the Year Award for posterizing Dwight Howard proves that watching him play makes all that potential feel even more real—his game has all the makings of a versatile threat for years to come.
On another note, when Oladipo is not on the court you are likely to catch him practicing his other passion of singing. From admitting that his mom had him singing in church at 7 or 8 years of age to singing being a past hidden talent that has come to the light, Oladipo shows no signs of slowing down. Having sang Usher’s “U Got It Bad” at his alma- mater during Hoosier Hysteria and “New York, New York” at the 2015 NBA All-Star Dunk contest, Oladipo is no stranger to the main stage.
TMZ reports, “Whether he’s got a basketball or a microphone in his hand, Victor Oladipo is prettydamn impressive. TMZ Sports has video of the Indiana Pacers star busting out R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” at a Florida water park earlier this summer and we gotta say … dude’s got some golden pipes. Here’s the thing … this wasn’t just a random performance … we talked with Oladipo about it, and he told us his rendition was part of a real deal talent show … AND HE TOOK FIRST PLACE!!”
Oladipo says, “It could be something feathery!” after mentioning in an interview that the majority of professional athletes that have pursued music have been rappers in the past, could he be one the first to break into the R&B genre and garner success? Oladipo has been in the studio with Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Eric Bellinger, and seen with artist Lil’ Wayne and more. Only the future will tell what will come out of such encounters, lets stay tuned!
