Titled "Single Again," the breakup anthem signifies the culmination of a relationship and the importance of living life on your own after a stretch of cohabitation. Ty Dolla $ign also lends his vocals to the song.
Tweeting about the message behind his latest release, the 31-year-old wrote: "I never knew that I didn’t know how to be alone in life. I always would find so much joy n happiness in a relationship or being with friends, but I didn’t know how important it was to be in a relationship with yourself."
The "Moves" rapper also sent some advice for those experiencing a similar situation.
