Lyfe Jennings is ready to get his grown and sexy on with a new look and classic sounds.
“I’m trying to change my whole image around. I think mostly, people know me as an urban artist,” he told Sister 2 Sister. ”I’m tired of the tennis shoes and the hats and all those things. I just really want to mature it up.”
The cute crooner donned an Armani suit to the 2013 Soul Train Awards in November, but his updated image isn’t just about the way he dresses. Lyfe has something new for his music fans, too.
“As far as the industry is concerned, everybody is putting out love songs and sex songs and strip club songs, but nobody’s really putting out music that’s gonna touch people’s hearts,” he explained. “Because of that, I still feel there’s a place for me, man, and I’m gonna keep on giving these people what they’ve been missing from these other artists.”
Lyfe, who was sentenced to three years in prison back in 2010, has grown and evolved since then, and he feels his fans have, too.
“My audience has grown up and honestly, I want to grow up,” he said. “Lyfe Jennings is officially upgraded.”
