He wrote that he never talked about his sexuality before “because I wanted my privacy” and that it was “my business… just that – MY business.”

Referring to “questions and speculations of the past,” he came out.

“With that being said, cheers to new beginnings and unapologetically walking in your truth,” he wrote. “It feels good as hell and I wish all y’all the same. Thank you for all the birthday love and constant support. Y’all are loved and cherished more than you know — for life! 25 years DOWN, many more to GROW.”

In my eyes, life isn’t about being perfect. It’s about growth, evolving, setting & smashing goals and most importantly happiness and LOVE. Im all about perfecting my love of self while not being afraid to love whoever I want, however I want. That real ENTANGLEMENT type shit 😆! I’ve always personally faced but publicly never answered one HUGE question about myself—all because I wanted my privacy and I felt like my business, is just that—MY business. Well, things just don’t work that way when your known on a big social scale 🤷🏾‍♂️😂! TODAY, all questions and speculations of the past, now have a present definitive answer! To finally answer the question….YES, I’m a bisexual man who’s in love with LOVE. I AM WHO I AM and I LOVE WHO I LOVE. Always have and always will! ❤️ With that being said, cheers to new beginnings and unapologetically walking in your truth. It feels good as hell and I wish all y’all the same. Thank you for all the birthday love and constant support. Y’all are loved and cherished more than you know—for life! 25 years DOWN, many more to GROW. ❤️

His coming-out message on Twitter was short and to the point.

The singer is perhaps best known for his 2015 hit single “If I Have to” and his appearance on season 3 of The Voice, when he was just 16-years-old.
