Vin Diesel states that the lockdown due to the global pandemic and the subsequent closure of the entertainment industry facilitated him to get out of his comfort zone and create music.
The Fast and Furious star shared the news on social media alongside a photograph of him in the music studio.
Sharing the picture, Vin Diesel wrote, “You all know how deep I go into the films I make.. this year there was no film production, an artist must have a creative outlet… you who made my face book first to 100 million, you who have always encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone saved me, because I was able to make music this year!!! Will always love you. 10 days until the next single!”
After years of working in number of successful Hollywood films, Vin entered into the world of pop music in September with the release of his debut single, Feel like I do.
Vin Diesel collaborated with DJ Kygo for the single, which was written and produced by Petey Martin. The song Feel like I do, describes a story of falling in love at first sight.
Diesel debuted the song on The Kelly Clarkson Show. During the launch, Vin shared, “Kelly, I am so honoured to be able to debut my music on your show because you, since you first won American Idol until today, have somehow maintained your authenticity. I am blessed that on a year that I would normally be on a movie set, as you know that’s not possible, I’ve had another creative outlet, another way to show you or share with you my heart.”
