DAYVID – “VHS” single feat. Prophet

“‘VHS’ is about trying to get over a tumultuous relationship, where both good and bad memories are on a constant loop in my mind. Feelings so strong, that everyday places, people, and moments are all triggers that send me back to the beginning and force me into re-experiencing the emotional anguish over and over again.” – DAYVID

‘VHS’ tells a bittersweet tale of a young guy who wishes he could forget the bad memories that he experienced with his ex-girlfriend.

Apparently, they were madly in love with each other. Then, things took a turn for the worse when they started cheating on each other for revenge. Consequently, their relationship slowly deteriorated, ending on a bad note.

Now, the guy wishes for a sequel to him and his ex’s movie, but his wishful thinking only triggers images he would rather not see.

‘VHS’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and lush instrumentation flavored with commercial pop, hip-hop, and urban-electro elements.

“I set up an impromptu writing session with Ameerah and Morgan Taylor Reid, where I shared a concept with them called ‘VHS’, which I had been toying with for some time. They loved the idea and found it to be so relatable to them, so really the song ended up writing itself in a matter of hours. Ameerah and Morgan brought up an idea of having rapper Prophet featured on the song. I thought it could be cool, but couldn’t fully imagine it. Reid reached out to Prophet and shortly after he sent back a verse. I couldn’t believe my ears, this was the ‘missing piece’. Now I’m in a place where I feel that the whole body of work is complete and I couldn’t be more proud and excited to share it with the world.” – DAYVID

‘VHS’ will be featured on DAYVID’s upcoming debut album, entitled, “No Signal”. The likable tune was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Morgan Taylor Reid (Marshmello, Jack & Jack, CHROMEO).
