Running at 3:37 minutes in an interesting mix of musical genres that stimulates modern-day vibes, Do For Love is a reminder of how much God has done and will do because of his great love for us. In a video posted by his official Facebook page, Danny shares:
“Do For Love” is a really super fun body song. So with this record, I’ve been in a dig through different styles because I grew up in a city that was very diverse and a lot of different sounds, kinda shaped who I was. And one of the writers came in with this idea “Do For Love”, and I said “I love that!“
And basically we’re talking about what God did for love, and it’s a super vibey track, and it’s, you know we’re not deserving of all the things He do for love, but He does it anyways. I brought in a rapper named Angie Rose , incredibly talented, she does a Spanish-English rap on it. But I think when you listen to it, you wanna have the radio speakers loud and it’ll bring into remembrance of the goodness of God in your life.
