    Once romantically linked to Pop princess Rita Ora

    You just had to throw her name in there. Why am I surprised that they “used to talk” lol she’s talk to every man in the industry and still haven’t got a new lead single for her new album.

      But can u blame her sis. He’s hawt.

    No boo. They dated. No coincidence they’re both at roc and that he’s one of the 21 guys the other bloggers said she got down with

    Hahahahaha, 2 years later and him and Rita are still new artists? Lol
    By the time he releases his album, the other guys will be back gearing up for their next album.
    I think what messed him, Rita and Luke James up is that they didn’t let their music do the talking. Right out the gates they were called greats and the best thing since sliced bread with nothing to show. They’re lost, they have jo sound, no style and no direction.

    How long has this guy been “coming”? I don’t see it for him, sorry.

    • FutureCIARA March 11, 2015

      OKAYYY! There is never a delivery after all the built up hype around this guy, I dont get it. And then his looks aren’t all what people are saying either. He needs to stay behind the scenes and just continue to write for other people

        I have to disagree with you sis. He has been releasing music. He’s put out three eps in two years and did go on tour with Melanie and Bridget K. I think the problem is that he doesn’t do enough / any promotion for his music so the pre-hype is major but then the post-hype is non exstant. Luckiily for him he’s good looking and has a very good voice so it’s only a matter of him getting his act together if he wants to get on the same level as August or Tinashe.

      • Sherry March 11, 2015

        @FC – I agree boo. This is the only site that hypes him up. He has a nice voice and is decent looking, but the way some of these stans hype him up, you’d think he was Michael Jackson or somebody.

    ElijahBlake is hot but he’s gonna have to come hard if he wants to really kill with the album. He can sing and makes good songs but I didn’t get any personality from him until I followed him on IG which is a problem cos not everyone is gonna do that. I feel like he’s a super nice guy who’s so much about making music that he doesn’t bother with trying to be a celebrity but he has to find a balance if he was to sell albums.
    Anyway, he’s attractive and can sing and has proved he can write so I’m here for him.

    Hes boring me! All this “Hes coming” talk…… Wake me up when he “arrives”.
