The inspiration behind this project was me just wanting to follow my heart and put out exactly what I wanted to put out, without any outside influences affecting my decisions.
It’s a totally new sound! Were you at all concerned about how your fans would receive it?
No, I’m not really concerned. I’ve put out music like this before. Fans who have been following me for a while have heard this sound from me. For the fans who are solely familiar with the Hip Hop sound I’m hopeful they will also gravitate towards this bc although it is Soul/R&B, it is still Hip hop infused.
What do you hope to accomplish with this album?
I hope to define my sound, my lane, and expand my fanbase to a whole other level.
Could you have pictured yourself here, 5 years ago?
Hard to say. I take every new accomplishment and phase of my career as a blessing.
What do you think the next 2 years will bring?
I believe the next two years will bring me the success and continued blessings that I’ve been working so hard to achieve.
Any songs do you favor on this album?
I think my personal faves are “Unbelievable” and “Lord Have Mercy”
We know your father has played a major part in your love for music, is there any particular aspects of this album that speak to that influence?
For sure. My Dad introduced a lot of classic music to me; The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, etc. This is my Dad’s favorite body of work from me thus far.
What do you hope the fans will get from this album?
I hope the fans can see into my heart and make a stronger connection to me as a person.
We know you’re currently on The Relief Tour with Mike Stud. What has that experience been like?
The Relief Tour has been crazzzy thus far. We’re a week deep so far and it just keeps getting better and better!
Which city are you most looking forward to visiting on this tour?
I’m looking forward to Rhode Island as Maino may come out & perform our single “Dream On” with me. I’m also really looking forward to ATL as Da BRAT is confirmed to come out and perform with me along with the possibility of a couple other special guests. Def excited for Texas & New Orleans, and Ann Arbor, MI has been my favorite spot so far. But honestly I look forward to all the dates. The audience has been super receptive of me and I’m having a blast!
