After collaborating with stars including Mike Posner, Big Sean and Pharrell Williams, Cab released his full length album Where I Belong earlier this year. While in Italy, he shared his thoughts on his new album and his relationship with Pharrell. Check out some experts below and head over to HYPETRAK for the full interview.
You just released your album a few weeks ago. Can you tell us more about your album and what the title refers to?
So this is my first album and it’s called Where I Belong, and the title refers to me – it means the period of time between when I was 18 and 21 years old, which was a big time of self discovery, as I was trying to figure out what kind of music I wanted to do. Of course I always listened to reggae, but there was a lot more to consider like how I wanted to make it, what kind of message I wanted to send and who I wanted to be. So the title for me is very important. It means self discovery.
What is the biggest misconception that people have about your relationship with Pharrell?
Misconception? That’s a tough one. I guess people don’t realize how cool of a guy he is. He’s very straightforward, and you need somebody on your team who is always going to tell you the truth, and Pharrell is that guy. He’ll tell you if he likes something or he doesn’t, he’s just very honest.
