"I was definitely bummed that [the original version of Sha Sha] didn't get put out, because I really love that album," he continues.

I don't know how many people would have heard it. Now I'm in a position where I have a great team around me that are going to make sure that my music gets to as many people as they can find. It gave me time to really figure out what I wanted to do."
