Coming off his breakout 2017 campaign, where he took home most improved player honors, NBA star Victor Oladipo looks to build on his success and power the Indiana Pacers to the playoffs once again. Even though the season is well underway, Oladipo still hasn’t forgotten about his side hustle as an emerging R&B artist. Vic returns to unleash his melodic slow jam “Connected” featuring an appearance from PnB Rock, which premieres via Billboard below.
“Where you heading next, you’ll be in-and-out/ I know you be bored when you out of town/ If you ever need some company, you know I’m a vibe so call on me and I’ll be there/ I’ll be there in a hurry,” Oladipo croons through the opening verse.
The Philly native checks into the track for the second half, delivering a sultry assist. “She love the way we be sexing, yeah yeah/ She know that I’m lit/ Pull up in my whip/ Bad bitch and she thick and yeah she with the shits/ And I love when we kiss,” the 26-year-old sings.
Branching off of “Connected,” the Indiana Pacers’ star guard is readying a Songs About You EP follow-up with his V.O. debut album. Oladipo is yet to announce a concrete release date, but informed Billboard that R&B titans Trey Songz and Tory Lanez will guest on the anticipated effort.
