The Mobile, Alabama native has plans for other collabs coming up in the near future. In an interview with Complex magazine, he talks about the optics around his new project Love Scars and explains his love for R&B through his consistency in the industry and what the future holds.
“After this song, there’s another with a big artist. But I’m keeping that in the pocket right now. I’ve been politicking with it. Talking with bigger artists, you know what I’m saying? It just hasn’t been artists of that caliber, you know. He’s one of the biggest that you can find. “
``I felt like I owed my fans more music because I took so long to drop Bleu Vandross 3. I wanted to make this album a concept album, because I had never done one before. So I was just like, “It's going to have a whole flap to it. It's going to be like a movie.”
Following the release of his latest album, Bleu Vandross 3 back in August, his new project draws in real emotion with tracks like “Regret in Your Eyes“, “Love Scars“, and “Her Fears“. His lyrics express his hopes for falling in love with someone, as they try to figure out their lover’s true intentions.
``You give your heart to someone, but you don't know how it leads
And you get left with a scar, they just don't know how it bleeds``
