  1. I’m always inspired by people who have really cool Twitter profiles.
  2. One of my goals is to find an unsigned YouTube artist and feature them on my album. That’s what I wished someone would’ve done for me.
  3. When we used to go to the car-wash where people would wipe the windows, my dad would go out and help them and then tip them as well, so I learned my empathy from my dad, and my mum is very empathetic too, but in a very stern way; she will always check my ego.
  4. I’m a homebody times ten.
  5. I skipped class a lot.
  6. I think with me and the type of music that I’m trying to make, it’s always going be soulful because I grew up listening to different types and variations of soulful melodies and jazz, but experimenting with different types of stylistic souls.
  7. I would be a giraffe because I just want to experience what a sore throat and being a giraffe feels like. It would be really uncomfortable walking around in the Sahara and being like, ‘I really need, like, 15 lozenges for my giraffe body.’
  8. Everyone’s gone through a breakup, and I’ve dated girls in the past where… I’ve never had a messy breakup, thankfully, but I’m never the one to end it. I’m always caught off guard as to why things ended because I guess I’m oblivious in a way.
  9. I came out to L.A. to be a songwriter and not an artist, and I’m so excited because I always secretly wanted to be an artist.
  10. I was raised in a Catholic school, and I would always go to church on Sunday, and I would hear the same music over and over and over and over again, same gospels, hymns, everything.
  11. I’m down to act a little bit — go on a couple auditions or make one of those three-second cameos with one line.
  12. I’ve gone through many phases in music in my life. Before I was signed, I was making completely different music, and my fan base has followed me. They continue to follow me as the music progresses and as I grow as an artist. As long as I stay true and don’t pretend to be someone I’m not, I hope they’ll come along with it.
  13. I’m in L.A., I’m in my early 20s, and I’m like, ‘There are so many pretty girls here! Let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on!’
  14. The fact that people are actually shaving their eyebrows is very flattering. But it’s crazy that people are singing songs I wrote in my bedroom.
  15. When I wrote ‘Marvin Gaye,’ my whole intention was to make a record that people would put on a record player… and just instantly make out with each other.
  16. What’s cool about the beatboxing is I was so afraid to sing in front of my peers, my parents, anybody. I just wouldn’t do it. So in sixth grade, I would turn to beatboxing because it made me feel better. Like, I can beatbox ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot.’ Doing that a bunch of times eventually gave me the confidence to sing in front of people.
  17. I used to be opposed to collaboration, and that’s probably why the music in the past wasn’t as good. Writing with other people, especially the great writers that I’ve had the privilege to write with, it activates something in your mind that you wouldn’t use alone.
  18. I started piano when I was four. My mom taught me. And then I went to Manhattan School of Music during high school, like every Saturday. And then I went to Berklee for college, in Boston.
  19. I was bit by a dog when I was two years old, and it almost mauled my face. It almost killed and/or blinded me. I was this close to dying at two, which is terrible. I survived it, and there was no head trauma or anything like that. Honestly, it was a miracle.
  20. I went on Ellen once, and even then, I was just a bad performer. It was nerve-racking at first playing in front of all her fans who really wanted to see her. Her fans are so young and accepting to new people, and it helped that they knew ‘Marvin Gaye,’ too.
