Former Tennis Pro Belee Kaur turns to Dance Pop with Massive Hit Single ‘I Believe’
TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – It’s not unusual for professional athletes to use music as motivation, though it’s not every day that you hear about a former tennis pro turning to Dance Pop as an artistic outlet. That’s the case for Canadian-Indian singer/songwriter Belee Kaur, however. While traveling the world as a professional tennis player, music was always her best friend. She recalls crucial moments in her tennis matches when she would sing her favorite songs in her mind to calm herself down. Eventually she realized that music was her true passion, and after a lifetime of training and touring, she hung up her tennis racket in favor of the microphone and partnered with RATHMUZIK and BENTLEY RECORDS, NEW YORK to begin her musical journey. It has proven to be a great move, because with only two releases to date she has already topped 2 million views on YouTube, and her star is only climbing.
Her latest single is the hit summer track “I Believe.” Stuck right in the middle of the Dance Pop lane, this upbeat jam is sure to be played in the clubs for many years to come. If you listen to this song and don’t move your body then you must be dead. It’s an upbeat, pumping groove that is perfect for a night out with friends. People all over the world will be getting sweaty as they jump and bounce to the music that Belee Kaur has created.
“I wrote this song as a response to the self-motivation I felt when going through a lot of difficulties,” she said. “If you really want something, you don’t need someone to back you or encourage you. Just tell yourself that if you want it, you can do it. I accepted my feelings and said this is what I wanted to do. Making a song about that emotion just felt so good, and when we gave it that little bit of an EDM touch it just came out perfect.”
“I Believe” is actually the second hit from this fast-rising young artist. Her previous track “Saturday Night” – a cover of the hit from Whigfield – has already surpassed 300k+ views on YouTube. The follow-up single is well on its way to catching that total, having already amassed nearly 1.5 million views in just a couple of weeks in its release. That doesn’t even include the rising number of plays across all the other streaming platforms upon which the single has been placed. And Belee said she has even more music planned to drop later this year, including a feature on an upcoming track with world famous Sean Paul, and many more renowned collaborations.
“Always trust God and his plans for you,” Belee said. “Your outlook should be no looking back. I have always wanted to make music that is lively and makes people happy and want to dance. There are too many reasons to be sad nowadays, but music can bring happiness and inspiration to your life. Even if I only inspire one other person, I think I did my job. So, I hope people will use my music to convince themselves not to give up. If we can support each other, we can achieve all that we want to.”
