I cant wait to see it..

You’re gonna love it.

Which do you prefer, Motown sound or today’s music?

I think they are one in the same. I think that today’s sound is the grandchild of that Motown sound. We use so many samples from that era and so much of the music is inspired of that time frame. I’m a child of Hip Hop. I love my Hip Hop music, but I think that we have redirected form that Motown flavor.

How was it working with America’s sweetheart Jordin Sparks?

Jordin is the most charismatic person in the world. She is super fun to work with. People are really gonna fall in love with her even more after watching this film.

Who was your favorite girl group?

SWV, Escape and I am a big fan of Destiny’s Child.

Who is your celebrity crush?
Oprah Winfrey.

What is your idea of the perfect date night?
Sitting at home on the couch watching “Think Like A Man.”
Three things you like in a woman?
Confidence, intelligence and sense of humor.
What don’t you like in a woman?
Insecurity, no sense of humor and girls who don’t love dogs.
Are we gonna see you a lot more on the movie scene?

It’s always been a dream and goal of mine. I’ve been in acting school for quite some time and now I’m starting to get some roles and I’m really excited about it and I plan on taking it to the next level.

What do you think about the beef that’s sparking up between En Vogue?
I think they are legendary and I hope they can work it out. I hope within the next couple years we can see them on the BET Awards reunited, that would be great.
