Some things have a way of happening at exactly the right time.

After being discovered on YouTube, Virginia To Vegas was signed to Wax Records in 2013 and released his first single We Are Stars in January of 2014. Recently, Baker co-wrote the hit single IDWK with blackbear and DVBBS. With new music dropping this summer and a busy tour schedule, 2019 is sure to be another promising year for Virginia to Vegas.

Just Friends, his latest single, is an upbeat exploration of the romantic possibility between companions, that leaves us with a hooky chorus and a question left in the air: what if we stopped saying no? Some things have a way of happening at exactly the right time. That time is now.

Now we’re day-drunk in the back seat of a taxi
And you’re telling me you want to kiss me

Derik John Baker, known as Virginia to Vegas, is an American-born Canadian singer and songwriter based in Toronto. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
