After his debut album, Freudian, achieved great success, Daniel Caesar’s second studio release, CASE STUDY 01, didn’t receive as much attention. This was primarily due to the Canadian artist’s controversial comments on race relations in 2019, which significantly impacted his career. However, Caesar is bouncing back stronger than ever with his much-anticipated NEVER ENOUGH project, releasing on New Music Friday (April 7).
The 15-track album features singles such as “Do You Like Me?”, “Let Me Go,” and more recently, “Valentina,” all showcasing Caesar on his own. The rest of the album includes notable collaborations, with Mustafa on “Toronto 2014,” serpentwithfeet on “Disillusioned,” and Ty Dolla $ign on “Homiesexual.” Furthermore, Caesar teamed up with Omar Apollo for “Buyer’s Remorse,” following their previous collaboration on “Invincible.”

Discussing the creation of NEVER ENOUGH with GRAMMY.com, Caesar said, “I go into an album thinking I know what I’m gonna sing about or write about, and then ¾ of the way through the album, it always changes. Every time I pick a title starting an album, I know it’s gonna change, but I pick it so that I have a bearing. I can’t stick to a program, so I know it’s gonna tell me what it is. With songs, too, I learn about myself by writing.”
