Starboy as he is also referred to recounted his first encounter with Damian Marley two years ago, while attending a festival in Uk and promoting his 'SFTOS' album. He enthusiastically said:

I was in New York promoting my 'SFTOS' album, I went on radio and I was asked who I wanted to make a song with? I said definitely Damian Marley and I went back to my hotel bro, I kid you not, I was right there on the balcony of my suite, chilling with my boys and my cup fell from my hand to the balcony downstairs, and guess who was downstairs that picked up my cup? It was Damian Marley.
