Only months after his successful debut album Palm Dreams, actor James Reid surprised everyone when he released a fresh new single called 16B. The track quickly gained traction and hype from fans and casual listeners. But as expected, it also received criticisms because of its provocative lyrics.
With lyrics such as ‘don’t you want to sleep with me / bring out the freak in me’, people have been reacting negatively because of assuming that James is singing about another girl and not about his girlfriend and love team partner, Nadine Lustre.
However, James clarified that even though he wrote the song, it isn’t about him. He wrote on his Instagram caption: “This song was inspired by a close friend. Yes 16B is a place, a place where even the most fiery of souls can get lost in the pretty lights.”
