Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Daniel Caesar drops the official music video for his fan-favorite song “Toronto 2014,” taken from his critically acclaimed album NEVER ENOUGH. The video, directed by Trent Munson and featuring collaborator Mustafa, features home videos shot in Sudan and Toronto. The video highlights the beauty of both artists’ home countries, and Daniel will be donating a portion of funds generated from the video’s revenue to Sudan Relief Fund, which helps local Sudanese people with immediate needs, such as food, water, shelter, and medication.
Mustafa says, “This video explores home, the idea that we’re neither global citizens nor nomads; that we live in the air between, questioning our dispensability in any place we’ve lived in. We travelled to Sudan last year to witness a homecoming, the beauty of Sudan can’t be replicated. We were met with such warmth that you could feel in fragments in this video. Now, as generals senselessly battle & leave our country in ruin, one can’t help but to think of all the kind people and family who assisted us in our journey—the buildings that have collapsed, the trees that went in fire—donate what you can to local efforts.”

Released last month, NEVER ENOUGH is Caesar’s highest charting album to date—debuting at #2 on Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart and Top 15 on Billboard 200 Chart upon release. The album marked the biggest sales debut for a male R&B artist this year. Viral song “Always” climbed to #1 on Genius’ Trending Lyrics Chart and peaked at #13 on Billboard Hot R&B Songs Chart and Top 25 on Billboard Adult R&B Airplay Chart. Following the album release and social support from BTS’ V, “Vince Van Gogh” shot up to #1 on Billboard Hot Trending Songs Chart.
NEVER ENOUGH was produced by Caesar alongside Dylan Wiggins, with additional collaborations from Ty Dolla $ign, Omar Apollo, and serpentwithfeet. It features previously released singles “Do You Like Me?,” “Let Me Go,” and “Valentina.”

In 2022, Caesar dropped “Please Do Not Lean” feat. Badbadnotgood—which received a 2023 Juno Awards nomination for “Traditional R&B/Soul Recording”—after a career-defining headline performance at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which drew massive crowds and featured a surprise appearance by Justin Bieber to sing their smash hit “Peaches.” In addition, Caesar took to the 2022 GRAMMY® Awards stage alongside Bieber and Giveon to perform the song, after it received four GRAMMY® nominations, two Billboard Music Award nominations, amassed billions of streams, and also landed Caesar his first #1 on the Billboard 100 Chart.

His 2017 debut, Freudian, was released independently and was a R&B breakthrough, bolstered by the 5x-platinum “Best Part” [feat. H.E.R.] and 3x-platinum “Get You” [feat. Kali Uchis]. Daniel received a GRAMMY® Award for “Best R&B Performance” for the former, and the b-side “Blessed” was featured on President Barack Obama’s annual favorites playlist. 2019’s follow up, CASE STUDY 01 [featuring John Mayer, Brandy, and Pharrell Williams], debuted at number 17 on the Billboard Top 200. His first number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 came two years later with Justin Bieber’s megahit “Peaches” [featuring Giveon], amassing billions of streams. 2022’s “Please Do Not Lean” has garnered nearly 70 million global streams to date and received critical acclaim from across the globe, including a “Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year” Juno Awards nomination.
