Quincy’s biological father, Al B. Sure; Ethan Miller/Getty Images for SLS Las VegasAl B. Sure‘s classic 1988 single “Nite and Day” has recently been given a makeover from none other than the artist’s biological son, Quincy.
The singer, who was adopted by Sean “Puffy” Combs and currently stars in the new Fox television show, Star, tells Billboard that he approached his biological father with the idea of remaking the track as a surprise, rather than something he previously planned to do.
“I didn’t talk to him about it like ‘This is what I wanna do.’ I just wanted to put my all into it and almost surprised him with it — like ‘Hey, let’s hang out. Let’s go in the studio, I want you to hear some stuff’,” he says.
“Because he is the creator of this record and obviously you don’t want to mess with something that you can’t put your all into and I definitely think we created something special. It makes sense for who I am and that being my father, there was no pressure at all. It was almost something that was supposed to happen,” he adds.
Quincy’s new music project, This Is for You, is available to stream now.
