RISING STAR | DAYVID Unveils 'Sure Of Me'

You can be sure this song will captivate you.

DAYVID just took the wraps off his new single "Sure Of Me."

"Sure Of Me" is the first single off DAYVID's forthcoming album, No Signal, slated to drop in 2019. The song is about a yearning desire for self-assurance, on "Sure Of Me" DAYVID reveals his vulnerability through intimate lyricism: "Two steps back, unraveling, twisted roads and tragedies; I'm just out here dying to find me."

A native of SoCal, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter began writing music at the age of 14. Eventually relocating to Los Angeles, where he worked with Fedde Le Grand and Navarra, DAYVID's inimitable sound blends elements of country, R&B, pop, and EDM into musical treasures.

Explaining his creative process, DAYVID says, "I co-write all my songs, and I am deeply involved in the whole process including production, mixing/mastering, and creation of visuals. I don't imitate anyone, but try to create music that speaks for me."

"Sure Of Me" opens with a potent, infectious R&B-flavored rhythm flowing into a tight, muscular pop tune with tints of dance savors. Exuding beau coup harmonic energy, the tune rides concentrated sonic pulses and glossy dark textures. I love the smoldering passion, susceptibility, and raw sensuality of this tune.

DAYVID's voice, mesmerizing and suffused with rich mellow timbres, conveys luxurious emotional commitment. It's one of those plush voices tailor-made for pop, chock-full of soul and flavored with cool velvety tones, alluring with a gravitational magnetism.

With "Sure Of Me," DAYVID confirms his massive talent. This track is first-rate.

Every Complaint About Javicia Leslie as the First Black Batwoman Is Ridiculous

If you're mad because "Batwoman was never black," there's something you need to know...


TV's newest incarnation of Batwoman, Ryan Wilder, is Black.

The CW's Batwoman has always had a progressive streak. In the first season, Orange Is the New Black alum Ruby Rose plays Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne's cousin who dons the Batwoman cowl to protect Gotham City. Just like every other superhero show, Kate's romantic life factors into the plot. Unlike the rest, however, Kate is an out lesbian, making her the first leading lesbian superhero in television history.

But after the first season, Ruby Rose announced that she was leaving Batwoman for unspecified reasons, allegedly related to burnout from the ridiculously long work hours required from a superhero series lead. This meant that in order for Batwoman to continue, the CW would need a new star.

Enter Javicia Leslie, former co-star of CBS comedy-drama God Unfriended Me. Prior to Leslie's casting, fans of the show wondered how Batwoman might handle the transition of actresses. Would Kate Kane just look completely different in season 2 with no canonical explanation?

Nope. As it turns out, Javicia Leslie's Batwoman will be an entirely new character: Ryan Wilder.
