From what he told the publication, however, it was all part of the plan.
"We're not [together]," the 1999 MC revealed. "Well, honestly, it wasn't anything that wasn't anticipated at first, but when we got back all the assets, like the photos, you know, I started to kind of like, 'Oh, there's something that could be done with these. This could tell the story.' So that's kinda what I wanted to do. I knew it was gonna catch people by surprise a little bit. That was the hardest part, was kinda waiting 48 hours, to like, you know I mean? They was wilin.'"

Elsewhere, he also spoke to xoNecole about his relationship with the California native, and also dished out some dismissals of fan theories.

And we just became really cool, you know? We got a pretty cool friendship, and I think she's gorgeous. I think she's talented. She was in the studio with me one time and she heard the song, and I know that she really liked the song.
"When it came to shooting the video, I just kind of proposed the idea to her and she was down, you know what I'm saying?" Jozif Badmon went on. "Shout out to Serayah because she really came through for me and she killed it. She killed it. I'm single, to to clear all the confusion on that up. I don't know; things could happen. Or have those things happened? Not necessarily. It's not anybody's business, but for those who are wondering, yes, I am single. The speculation and everything could die now."
