 CA: “I Won’t Give Up,” the first single from your upcoming album, could be a love letter to the gay community. Have you thought about it that way?

JM: I wanted the song to be able to connect with anyone who has something worth fighting for, whether it’s the fight for equality or someone who just wants to lose five pounds. The song is available for anybody’s fight. Hopefully, though, I never see the song on two sides of the same fight. That would be awkward.

CA: “Love is a Four Letter Word” lacks the scatty wordplay we’ve come to know from you. What’s that all about?

JM: It shows up in a different way now. That scatty rap and wordplay is still in the core of my writing and what I do; for instance, the bridge of “I Won’t Give Up”: ‘I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily/I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make.’ The essence of that is a scatty, rappy wordplay all about alliteration and rhythm. On this album I wanted to have an intention with the words and have an intention with the lyrics rather than just pass it off as goofy wordplay.

CA: Since the album’s all about love, and without quoting Whitney Houston, what’s the greatest love of all?

JM: Oh man. I think it’s the love of oneself, because it’s once you truly love and accept yourself that you can accept others loving you and you walk around with the confidence and strength to love others and actually be of service to the world, so it’s that: accepting and loving oneself, and it has nothing to do with being self-absorbed. It’s just getting over your shit so you can step out into the world and make a difference.
