Diddy Reveals How 'The Four' Prepares Its Artists for Post-Show Success (Exclusive)
"I feel like something I've maybe always struggled with is my emotion in a song because I might be feeling the emotion but I don't know whether it's my like Englishness I keep it quite bottled up" the 21-year-old singer shared. "I finally managed to break my own walls and barriers down and I've managed to unlock that sort of that emotion."
James also credited a lot of his musical growth to Diddy, who was "guiding me in certain directions, saying different things to me, giving me really amazing advice."
"He's really helped mold that side of me to now be sort of more of the whole package," James added.
