Get used to the name DaniLeigh.
The singer, known for her dancing skills and YouTube videos, has been on the rise in recent years. And with 2 million followers on Instagram, DaniLeigh is making a name for herself in music. She even caught the eye of Prince in 2013, when she directed the music video for his song “Breakfast Can Wait.”
Prince was a mentor of sorts, advising her to be business savvy.
“He told me to write my own music and make sure it’s good. That was the main thing and to be careful signing contracts,” she said. “I definitely was and am inspired by Prince. He just looked so cool and so different. He had his own aesthetic and style, and I feel like I have my own style, too.”

Since then, she has broken out with hits “Lil Bebe” and “Easy.” Plus, her unique fashion sense has set her apart from the pack. “It always starts with the color aesthetic,” the Puma ambassador told FN at the label’s women’s event last month in New York. “When I’m putting a fit together, it’s like what shoe am I going to complete it with. I love to be comfortable. Shape is important, too. I love a dope platform.”
DaniLeigh’s style gives off tomboy-chic vibes, and she’s often spotted in the latest sneaker, whether it’s Puma’s Future Rider or Nike’s Off-White x Dunk Low Pine Green. “I’m always dancing, so if I can’t move in my shoes, I probably won’t wear them,” she said.
