“FINALLY! I’m grateful, excited, and a lil nervous about it all. Long time coming and super long road ahead. Got to be great,” he expressed.

The Houston-bred entertainer, who has penned songs for Ariana Grande, Nathan Sykes and the “Think Like A Man Too” movie soundtrack, said the love his supporters have shown him has been overwhelming.

“The love has been refreshing, and at times, surprising,” he confessed. “Realizing how many folks have been rooting for me is humbling.”
