I think on stage there's a side of me that comes out that's very fierce and confident.
I think a part of being successful or trying to be successful is staying true to who you are. Be genuine.
I do have very solid reggae roots based on the fact that I'm Jamaican, and so that is a part of myself; even if I never do all reggae, it has to come out in some way because that's who I am.
Being born in Jamaica, race was never an issue. It was always about the type of person I wanted to be, not the colour of my skin.
I think when you are a cool guy but also a hot guy, that makes you even more sexy.
Music for me is not just being on a stage and singing. It's my coping mechanism.
I can work my butt off and create an album that's wonderful, but if it's never played and never given the outlet, it won't succeed.
I think a lot of my dreams have come true, and my next dream is to have a No. 1 selling album. A Grammy-award-winning album.
I want to make an album with just great beats and big vocals and just amazing lyrics.
My mom always said if you have a gift, it is absolutely not about you. So I don't get twisted and think for one second it's all about me.
Off stage, I'm very quiet and very reserved and kind of shy.
Own the stage, command the stage, and don't be afraid to be the best you can be.
There is always something wonderful about a live audience.
I want to make the music that people remember, and it doesn't need a trend; it doesn't need to be constantly hyped. There's no time period for it. That's the type of music I want to make.
I can put in Bob Marley's music now, and it's still relevant.
