The singer was spotted by NeYo, who offered to work with him. Then Chris Brown retweeted his videos. Record company interest followed and now 19-year-old Maynard drops his debut single, “Can’t Say No,” on April 20 through Polydor.
Maynard takes the comparisons in stride.
He claims his music sounds different that Bieber‘s. But he adds it’s “flattering to be compared to one of the biggest artists in the world right now when I haven’t even released my first single.”
