Throughout his hiatus he has been working hard to iron out his sound of music to present to his fans for the new year of 2016. It's safe to say that he's back and better than ever.

Within working on this new music, he has recently announced on social media a brand new single entitled "I Want More" produced by billboard producer and songwriter James Worthy. By description, the song is a fun up-tempo style mixed with a little R&B for urban appeal.

It seems like lately Mr. Worthy has taken on some of the most interesting projects in the industry which is hard to say most times. From Truth Hurts, Bonecrusher, Monifah, to B Angie B there is no doubt James has given this young talent a hit song.

Also, looking deeper into the new song, a new songwriter is definitely emerging in the industry by the name of Princess J (ironically she has appeared on American Idol herself as a Season 6 contestant). Ms J is currently working with Mr Worthy on other projects to look out for in 2016.
