Biggest success of 2016: “I’m so thankful that my fans have really enjoyed all of the music I have put out in 2016.

I’m really excited to be sharing five new original songs and a remix with my fans in 2017 as part of The Last Text EP. The new tracks include “The Last Text,” “By Your Side,” “Bingo,” “Love Me Back,” “Jordans,” and “Sweatshirt (Remix)”. I can’t wait for all my fans to hear the new music!”
