Based in Houston, Daniel was a high school athlete who turned his attention to music. He learned production skills online via his future label, Internet Money Records, uploading music and building his audience with a series of viral tracks, including 2015's "Fool." By 2018, he had collected over a million streams for singles such as "Pretend" and "Mirror." The dramatic, trap-indebted "Falling" was his first major hit, racking over 70 million streams and benefitting, in part, by a booming blackbear remix. The track landed on his 2018 EP, Homesick, which took a steady hike to the Billboard 200, finally placing on the chart over a year later in late 2019. That same year, he issued the Weeknd-esque, '80s synth romp "Trouble" and the Restless EP. Daniel's full-length debut, Nicotine, arrived in March 2020 and included the song "Past Life," co-written by Finneas O'Connell. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
