Don’t forget: Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday!
Turn up the stereo and kick off your weekend with “Daddy Daughter Day,” a Father’s Day anthem by hip-hop artists Pierce Freelon and J Gunn. The song is about two dads who treat their daughters to a day of self-care, fun, and exploration. Both artists lost their own fathers in the past year and the song also serves as a tribute to them.
In the music video for “Daddy Daughter Day,” the father/daughter duos showcase their own adventure visiting black-owned businesses around Durham, North Carolina, where Freelon is based. Ngozi Designs create the custom African-print, hand-sewn face masks; WonderPuff made the vegan, organic cotton candy; the tennis instruction came from Empact Tennis; and Blackspace provided the Afronauts tank top and the recording studio for the song.
Freelon is releasing his first family music album D.a.D. on July 31. The musician uses a blend of hip-hop, jazz, and electronic music inspired by his journey as a black millennial dad living in the South. The album will be available for streaming on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, and anywhere families listen to music.
