Connecticut singer, rapper and songwriter Danny Aro has returned with his latest single and first release of the year, “999!” The young star has been rising rapidly since bursting on the music scene in 2020 and experiencing early success with tracks such as “Diamonds”. With already well over a million streams accumulated as an independent artist, “999!” continues Danny’s increasing momentum for what looks set to be his biggest year to date.
Packed with infectious melodies, heartfelt lyricism and a huge anthemic hook about living life to the fullest, the standout track shows why Danny has been such a hit with listeners so early on in his career. Fusing hip-hop and indie-pop-punk, Danny’s versatility and appreciation for various genres result in a song with enormous appeal that sounds original and fresh and has all the right elements to catapult his career to new heights.
“999!” is a tribute to one of Danny’s influences, the late rapper Juice WRLD. Speaking further on the release, Danny says, “I made this song to celebrate Juice WRLD’s life. Juice WRLD always says in his songs that he was a ‘leader of the lost souls’, and I do feel like he wanted people to find the happiness they deserve in this world. Although the main chorus seems like a message to have fun living fast and dying young, it’s a play on that and actually saying that life is meant to be lived to the fullest and to avoid the easy temptations that can lead someone down the wrong path. The lyrics of the song try to show the trickery the world presents every single day through easy temptations and sensations, which Juice WRLD often spoke about in his music, but also that we can all break through those ceilings together.”
