Virginia to Vegas, aka Derik Baker, is an American-born Canadian singer-songwriter. After being discovered on YouTube, Baker was signed to Wax Records in 2013 and released his first single “We Are Stars” January of 2014. Baker is best known for his indie-pop choruses and sticky electronic melodies, which have awarded him critical acclaim and several platinum certifications.

In 2018, Baker expanded his reach internationally, co-writing the single “IDWK” with blackbear and DVBBS. Baker's most recent release, “Just Friends” saw Virginia to Vegas reach new heights, garnering a top 5 chart position at Canadian radio.

He now drops his new single “betterman.” The pop single pairs the message of self-improvement with his trademark synth-pop melodies. “betterman” introduces an elevated maturity to Virginia to Vegas’ music, and invites his fans along as he begins a new exciting era.

Of the new single, Baker comments:

“betterman” is a song about personal growth and reflection. In my personal life and career, I’ve experienced many ups and downs, but ultimately the one thing I’ve found to calm anxiety and doubt is putting in work on myself. This song touches on the idea of growing up following a breakup and the journey home.”

“betterman” comes out following the meteoric rise of Virginia to Vegas’ latest gold record “Just Friends,” which went top 5 at Canadian radio, and amassed 40 million streams across all platforms. “betterman” marks the first single of an exciting new chapter for Virginia to Vegas, with more to come very soon.
