MAJOR. is back on the R&B scene with his new ballad “Honest.”
On the Harmony Samuels-produced ballad, the song finds MAJOR. opening up about his faults and flaws in an effort to set his current relationship on the right path.
“I just want to be honest / I just want to be honest / With all my faults around, I may let you down / I just want to be honest / Oh, oh, oh honest / I can’t do it without you / don’t wanna let you do,” he sings.
In an interview with Billboard, the 33-year-old singer further explains the inspiration for his new track. “I wanted to give voice to the pain and shame we often keep locked inside. So now that you know who I am, will you still love me for me? My hero Michael Jackson dared us to face ourselves in ‘Man in the Mirror.’ ‘Honest’ is my response.”
“Honest” is the first single from MAJOR.’s untitled sophomore project, which is slated for a first quarter release in 2018. He is looking to build upon the success of his breakout hit “Why I Love You,” which cracked the top 5 on Billboard’s Adult R&B chart last year.
