Combine a little pop, a little hiphop and a big dose of positivity and call it CjD. That is Collin James Daniel. And you can catch his tracks on his YouTube channel, the preferred method of younger artists these days. Hey, look what happened with Mac Miller and Justin Beiber? So I decided to check out CjD’s music, and sounds like he just might be onto something. If you’re into pop hooks and hiphop beats this just might be for you.
