The album also includes the track “Exposure,” which was the first Shelley released under his new moniker back in February this year. Upon. releasing the song, he also shared a statement about the name change, saying:

After the release of my debut album, Big Baby DRAM, I’ve worked on so many things, but most importantly I was working on me. Ever since I was introduced to the world with “Cha Cha,” my career has taken me on a journey enabling me to meet people like Rubin, Snoop, Queen Bey, and Queen Erykah Badu. I got to travel the globe, tour with Kendrick and I did Coachella. On top of all of that, simultaneously wrapped up in the fast life. I was moving with no breaks, because that’s how life was coming to me, so I took some time to focus on my health, voice and growth; focus on me. Now it’s time for everyone to meet me: Shelley.
