“When I first heard the project with all of the songs in order, I just stood still in the studio, like, damn, we just made that? I couldn’t move. Each song on DARLING is a journey. They all move effortlessly, like the women the songs are about. The songs specifically about love, really come from a vulnerable place that I haven’t heard in a long time from a male R&B singer. Not saying that we ain’t out here showing a sensitive side sometimes, it’s just n*ggas be tryna be so cool with this R&B sh*t. I think that pocket of vulnerability is the missing piece. I miss that in R&B. I’m not into that prideful kinda love. DARLING gets really imaginative sometimes and there’s something on it for everyone. I’m excited for people to hear it, and make their own memories with it. That’s the fun part for me. “ -DIXSON
