“Then Beyoncé came and I was like no, this is not it. I wasn't feeling it, but I gave it another chance and played it for the second time.

“I was like I've been here with Beyoncé where she releases a song and I don't like it, but I know where her power and strength is. Beyoncé is not the type of vocalist that would catch you based on her vocals. If Beyoncé was not a visual artist I don't think she would be as successful as she is.”
