After getting a quick taste of fame in 2010 with his viral performance of Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" and debut album the following year, Greyson Chance took a prolonged break to grow up, and remake his aesthetic. Now, six years later, the 18-year-old singer is giving music another chance. In this Fuse interview, Chance explains why he decided to return:
"There were ways I could have dealt with that. I was very split at the time. I was like, 'Okay, you had a good run. Go back to Oklahoma and be normal.' But there was this devotion to stay with the music and to be patient with it too, and to just wait for the right time and the right team."
The singer is now promoting his second EP, Somewhere Over My Head, which was released on May 13. He explained that it's a "reintroduction back into to music" and was inspired by moving from Oklahoma to Los Angeles and experiencing homesickness.
