Fast-rising singer-songwriter Reggie Becton brings his storytelling abilities to his latest single, “Issues”. The soulful R&B cut is the first single from his upcoming album, California (the title being a tribute to his current location). “Issues” tells the story about a rocky relationship. “Throughout college, I was in a situationship with a girl I met in high school, and from the inception of our relationship we were always having ‘issues,’” explains Reggie. “Through the years we would always reconnect but go nowhere. The final collision in our ‘traffic’ came the night before I moved to LA. At that time, I think I was in such a fragile state due to preparing for this big move, not knowing how things would turn out, leaving family and friends behind, that when she didn’t come to see me, I was hurt.”
