Just like his production, he’s kind of like the same thing as me.
He sings, he produces, he plays all types of instruments. That’s what I’m after. I wouldn’t wear that type of clothes or wear my hair like that. [Laughs.] But as far as artistry, that’s the same type of dude I am.” In an interview he revealed that Kim Burrell was his absolute favorite vocalist, and that Brandy was right there with her.
