This past year alone has been a major one for PnB, as he kicked 2017 off with the release of his GTTM: Goin Thru the Motions project, which saw 14 new tracks from the vocalist, as well as features from the likes of A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Ty Dolla $ign, Quavo, Wiz Khalifa and YFN Lucci.
Earlier this year, In an interview with XXL, he spoke on how he creates his music and releases it for his loyal fans. “It’s kind of hard to pinpoint what you’re going to get from [me],” PnB explains. “I can give you a ‘Selfish’ and I can still come give you like, a ‘Jealous.’ I’m coming from the streets but I can still give you personal situations and relationships that I’ve been in with females. You just never know, I’m just coming different.” Listen to ‘Selfish’ Here
