I think the whole tape is a bunch of radio-ready hits. I’m coming from a place where people don’t really make it out or do this type of thing, and this album shows how I’m trying to make it. I got some vibe music up in there. Some stuff to make you feel good. Some turn up music. At the end of the day I want to be known for creating hit-makers. I make real, organic, soulful, timeless music.”
