Just in time for their characters Derek and Alex to tie the knot on the big season finale of FOX’s Star, Quincy and Ryan Destiny join forces for their new single, “Special.” On the love ballad, the singers tag team as they trade verses, serenading the other on why they’re so exceptional. Destiny’s buttery vocals nicely complement Quincy’s often gravel-like approach throughout the track.
As the son of Al B. Sure, the adopted son of Diddy, and the god-son of Quincy Jones, Quincy has grown up in an environment with musically-gifted individuals. The 27-year-old has churned out records for years now, but unlike other artists, he hasn’t shown much of himself grinding out tunes on the studio. “I don’t think people understand how much I put into the music side of it, as everything else, too but that’s my fault because I don’t show the process,” he told HipHopWeekly. “I don’t do none of that because I’m very much to myself and I like spending time alone because I can get the most done.”
