Did this at the end of 2013. Took it down for some reason. Re-listened to it again recently and felt like it was fire, so I reopened my Soundcloud.
if it hadn’t been for Facebook memories, I would’ve had no idea what today was. On March 5th, 2014, I released my debut solo album Soon You’ll Understand.

This was the second time I had announced the single’s release as I had originally planned to release it April 15 but decided to push it and the album back in favor of promoting The Mind’s … [[Continue Reading]]
