“So people really thought I signed to Mavin but it wasn’t like a legal signing, it was just love. And then Temple Music came, when Temple music came, I love the vision, I love the dream and I was like Okay, let me try this, and that was when I released “Up To Something,” “Hold On,” I mean,“Good Vibes.” And after that, it was time for me to move, because I felt like I got to the point where I have to put out my own thing, have my own family, have my own team, me and Alex…”
