CloudKid Presents Jake Daniels - Stalker
Jake Daniels surely doesn’t waste any time, back already for his first single after his ‘Obsessed‘ EP drop back in March, this time with a new single, ‘Stalker‘ – an upbeat, aggressive track that borders and blends between alternative and pop in sound, in very Jake Daniels fashion.
He says of the song, “It tells a story about social media and real life bullies. The main character of the song feels like he’s being watched everywhere he goes. He gets picked on frequently by the same few bullies, and they’re always making remarks about him on social media and following his every move. Throughout the song, he finally reaches his breaking point, and starts a blog called ‘The Stalker,’ which describes in detail the bullies from his school dressed as villains in 3D character form, hinting at who’s who with character descriptions. The song goes into detail about how the main character feels, // you got your notifications on, you watch my stories to get you off // implying the bullies feed off of their own negative energy. There’s definitely a deeper message involved in the song, highlighting the problems of internet bullying and its affects on others.”

Inspired by the likes of Jagwar Twin, Neoni and My Chemical Romance on this track, Jake Daniels considers himself to be a dark pop and alternative artist. Born and raised in a small city in upstate New York, with musically gifted parents and siblings, Jake’s artistic journey began early, and today that journey has garnered a few more companions to accompany him. With hundreds of millions of views and streams ranging across various platforms, spots on the top pop and alternative charts in his region, having only released music since 2019, Daniels has amassed a strong online presence across the world, due to his relatable lyrics and story-driven songwriting. His most viral and cinematic track “Two Face” jolted his career, with Youtube’s animation and Gacha community welcoming it — and him — with open arms, making him go from small town hero to global spectacle in a matter of months. Now with his first EP behind him, Daniels is back to continue taking the world by storm. ‘Stalker‘ out now on CloudKid!
