Emerging singer Victory has released her new single titled “Open Your Eyes.” Produced by 9th Wonder, the optimistic track is about being aware of all the beautiful things life has to offer.
“So darling won’t you open your eyes / How can you be so blind to the beauty of life? / It’s everywhere so won’t you dare to open your eyes,” Victory sings on the chorus.
Speaking on the song, Victory says, “Never let the sad things in life make you blind to beautiful things in life. That’s the whole message behind the song.”
Victory’s new album, The Broken Instrument, will release on June 15 via Roc Nation. “Overall, I like to think of my album The Broken Instrument as collection of art pieces,” explains Victory. “Each song is a painting that was inspired in one way or another by my life. I’m so excited to finally be able to share these paintings with the world.”
Victory has joined Empire actor/singer Jussie Smollett on his Sum of My Music Tour, which will hit Los Angles, Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta and Chicago, to name a few.
The singer-songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist was personally signed by JAY-Z after being discovered performing with her siblings at their regular performance spot — the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace in Central Park.
