“I am blessed that on a year that I would normally be on a movie set … I’ve had another creative outlet, another way to show you, or share with you, my heart.”
Vin Diesel is known for playing tough guys on the big screen, driving fast and blowing things up. But quarantine helped him tap into a gentler side, which he revealed on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
The “Fast & Furious” star called in to Clarkson’s show to tease the premiere of his new dance track with Kygo called “Feel Like I Do,” and we knew he was serious because he was standing behind a recording studio mic.
Does that mean he let the beat drop and started singing right there. No. No it does not. Instead, he offered a heartfelt message to Kelly and talked a little bit about how this came to be.
““I’m so honored to be able to debut my music on your show because you, since you first won ‘Idol’ until today, have somehow maintained your authenticity,” he told Kelly.
He went on to explain, “I am blessed that on a year that I would normally be on a movie set, but as you know that’s not possible, I’ve had another creative outlet, another way to show you, or share with you, my heart.”
Vin says that Kygo was one of the first people who believed in him, and even signed him to his label. And with that, Kelly offered up a sneak peek of the track, which features a sultry groove and a surprisingly gentle vocal from Vin Diesel on top.
