I love his music and just found out he was born right here in ATL go figure! My daughter introduced me to his music and my grandson loves it too! His hit song, “Unavailable” has over 68 million views on Youtube! All this time I thought his song said, I’m on my way lol! I loved the collaboration he just did with Chris Brown too on the song “sensational”, that’s my jam! See more photos and video clip inside…
