Being completely captivated by the work of Jacquees, Chris Brown, and Usher it was inevitable that he’d rise to the challenge and create his own wave in the genre of R&B.

The alluring track encapsulates the sentiments of a steamy situationship and is unquestionably one that belongs on everyone’s “late night’ playlist.
“Beat It” also serves as a preview of what the melodic artist is gearing up to deliver with his nearing new project “Hold Me Closer”.
