It’s been the most incredible outlet," he wrote. "Finding something you love so much and can do just for you, for your spirit is I think such an important process. I’ve come to the place where I’d love to share it with you. I haven’t got a project or album, just a bunch of different songs that perhaps some of you will be able to connect to. They have helped me get through some of the most difficult times. At some stage I’m going to find a moment to share with you so bare with me."

© LAT Bernie Ecclestone and Lewis Hamilton actually always had a good relationship With his statement that "blacks are in many cases more racist than whites", Bernie Ecclestone made headlines last week. And for a reaction from Lewis Hamilton, who subsequently described the former Formula One boss's statement on social media as "sad and disappointing". The London Times radio program used the controversy to ask Ecclestone for an interview.
Hamilton continued, “I had this incredibly beautiful and talented person reach out to me a while back asking for me to be on her album, I was so blown away and I jumped at the opportunity. I had two hours to write the short verse and record. The goal was to have the music come out under a different name so that you could hear the music first and later know it was me but it didn’t work out the way id planned."
He added, "I shied away from acknowledging it was me, I don’t know why, maybe Insecurities, fear, overthinking, something I think many people can relate to. Well I want to say that XNDA is me and I am so honoured and grateful to @xtina for giving me a place to use my voice. I have so much gratitude and respect for her and what’s she’s done in the business. #pipe.”
