“Yours” was the same as a lot of the songs that I write, inspired by my wife and our journey through breakups, makeups, fights, marriage, and love but ultimately, commitment.
However, unlike a lot of the songs I write, “Yours” was one of those songs where I sat at the piano and with just a few simple chords, the idea just poured out of me. The concept began with these lines – “cause I know what I wanna be for the rest of my life” and then the chorus followed with “I just wanna be yours, only yours and you to be mine, mine all mine”.
As I continued to work on other songs, that chorus just stuck in my head and I kept coming back to the melody and the concept – I knew that this song was going to be something special.
When I took it to my buddy Jon Philip from North Carolina, who is a great producer and instrumentalist, he began to put an R&B/Gospel feel to it, which I ran with, and that’s when the idea of featuring Reggie Rocc was mentioned. From there, the idea really began to come together, and as Reggie’s lyrics for his verse came into play, the real inspiration for the song took shape in one sentence – “everybody’s got somebody, and I just wanna be yours”. The idea then, to release this song and music video on Valentine’s Day, as an anthem to whoever your special someone is, just became a no-brainer.
