He’s the R&B heart throb with a growing legion of loyal fans, enamoured with the voice that has everyone from Trey Songz to Ne-Yo singing his praises.

So strong is his buzz, that recent weeks saw the video for his debut single ‘Leggo‘ gain a new home at the ever popular E! network, and a rising momentum on Urban radio.

Now watch as he speaks to our friends over at ‘VIBE’ Magazine on the recording process of his debut album, and his admiration for a number of R&B’s leading players, including Rihanna‘s reported beau, Chris Brown.

        Umm, theres no report of Rihanna hitting him. And it wasn’t the first time, he broke her car window like the lil b**** he is. But that’s cool, he’s days are numbered.

  4. BeyWhoUWanna March 11, 2013

    So innocent, Chris is a crackhead. He doesn’t inspire anybody except his drug dealers and Riwhore.

    • mob March 11, 2013

      Beyonce needs to stop practicing BESTIOLOGY & give that Mexican woman back her child!….GTFOH

      • Jessi March 11, 2013

      • FAF March 11, 2013

      • Beyonce Till The End Of Time March 16, 2013

        @jessi Stfu

  5. TaylorWins March 11, 2013

    Please tell me he wasn’t lip synching.

  6. Tam March 11, 2013

    F*** you b****** trying to come for Chris Brown! All the young ones know who has been carrying R&B for quite a while now and that guy is Chris Brown.

    • WomanToWoman March 11, 2013

      Ummm no. That would be Trey so have a seat on Chris’ violent fist.

      • mob March 11, 2013

        Trey who? Stop it. I like Trey Songz but stop the bullsh**. CB is not violent he is just being painted the way racist amerikkka always does when they target black men! Learn something new dumbass…

      • CHUDDS March 11, 2013

        LMAO. Trey Songz? Really?! Chris is mainstream. Trey is not. Chris has platinum albums, singles, sold out tours and a Grammy. Unfortunately, 2009’s events ruined his career but FAME still outsold Trey’s albums. Trey has not been carrying anything.

    • Beyonce Till The End Of Time March 16, 2013

      @Tam you tell them

    • Beyonce Till The End Of Time March 16, 2013

      Different : subject No One Can Replace AnyOne You Have To Be Different Or Automatically You Come Off As a Knock Off

      But he sound ok he may have a chance Not that bad

  7. JanetXone March 11, 2013

    Very talented but I think he needs to be too sexual in his music. Nobody is here for that anymore.

  8. mob March 11, 2013

    I’ve never heard of this kid but he knows what’s good and who is hot! …..LOL #TeamBreezyB*tches

    *Wow, he sounds a bit like Breezy. Oh wait, I saw his video. He is a fan of Chris’ you can see it in his dance steps!

    • OVOForever March 11, 2013

      Chris isn’t a good role model though. It’s clear by his good manners and good looks that he stans for King Graham.

      • mob March 11, 2013

        And Fake… I mean Flake…oops Dake is?

        Chris Brown is a wondeful person who does GREAT THINGS FOR HIS COMMUNITY! I don’t follow the racist media’ bullsh** concening him! I see the truth. I leave the common bullsh** to the weak mnds who need to be lead aroud like the sheep that they are.

        ……HARK IS THAT LITTLE BOY BLUE?…….the sheep need to follow the horn!!

  9. BrandNu211 March 11, 2013

    It makes me happy that yall cover him now, because I used to follow him on youtube.

  10. My Forehead Tho March 11, 2013

    I’m sorry but that cover was just as average as the people he named as his inspirations.

    There is nothing unique or different about his voice. The industry doesn’t need another Rihanna or Chris Brown, it needs talent.

  11. Suicide Blonde March 11, 2013

    He must be Gay.

    • Sterling Infinity @InfinityHybrid March 11, 2013

      lol

  12. eric March 11, 2013

    Chris Brown and Frank Ocean are not the people this kid should be looking up to. He’s gonna learn.

  13. Sterling Infinity @InfinityHybrid March 11, 2013

    are they trying to replace Chris Brown? Didn’t hear anything that jumped out but he’s still young

  14. Mark111 March 11, 2013

    Him and that Seven Streeter girl are the next big thing in urban music. With Trey getting old, Chris on his last string and Beiber on his 07 Britney Spears events, theres room for the new. Plus Chris was the last dude to really pop off, cause I don’t know where that Jason dude at and Rih was the last chic to pop off (in the urban world.) We need some fresh acts, 1) To get some new sounds. 2) To let these assholes know that they’re days are numbered.

  15. Mother Mariah March 11, 2013

    Incredibly average.

  16. Beyonce Till The End Of Time March 16, 2013

    But he sound ok he may have a chance Not that bad .
