Singer and songwriter, MAJOR., has been in the music industry since 2014 but it wasn’t until his hit single “This is Why I love you” went viral that he started to get the recognition he rightfully deserved. The love song has received over 99 million views on YouTube, reached top 5 on Billboard charts and was dubbed as “the wedding long song of the year” by Stevie Wonder. We caught up with MAJOR. on the red carpet of the 51st NAACP Image Award as he talks the impact of the single, Stevie Wonders first reaction and of course his new engagement!
Every artist strives to put out a record that they hope will live on forever and be a staple of their legacy. When asked how it feels to have made a timeless record with his single “This is why I love you”, MAJOR. says “I knew that it was going to impact. I’m blown away at how much it impacted. Stevie Wonder said when he first heard it ‘I believe this will be the wedding love song for years to come’ and sure enough for the past 4 years plus it has been embraced…I’m just blown away.”
MAJOR. recently announced his engagement on social media with a picture collage of the proposal.
During the interview MAJOR. couldn’t pass up the opportunity to speak on his engagement and shine a light on his lovely fiancé or as he would say his “why I love you”. When asked how he knew she was the one, his response left us in awe. “She’s virtuous in every aspect of the word” he says, “but let me tell you something and I haven’t told a lot of people this, this is when I knew. I asked her how many kids do you want, and she said however many you give me.” The couple then went on to share that they are planning a beautiful summertime wedding.
Aside from feeling joyous over his new engagement, MAJOR. is equally grateful to be living out his dreams. “I’m excited to be here with two nominations this year. One for Outstanding Male Artist and Outstanding Guest Actor in a TV series. I’m just living dreams.”
Congratulations to MAJOR. and all his achievements! We look forward to see what else he has in store this year, including his wedding!
