“Leon’s talent was just a higher level from every other singer or producer that I was hearing,” the “Spicy” hitmaker told Billboard at the time. “The fact that he was doing everything himself from playing bass to working Logic and Pro Tools [was amazing]. From the first song I heard, I knew he was one of them ones.”
Since then, we’ve heard Thomas’ talent speak for itself on “Love Jones” back in August. He and Ty Dolla came together for the single, but now, he’s back with a song of his own.
On Monday (December 12), the rising recording artist took us to his “Breaking Point.” As Revolt notes, the song was previously used in a Beats by Dre advertisement starring LeBron James and his son, Bronny.
The emotional song finds the Illinois native reflecting on how he can nurture a fading relationship. “Slow dancing in this burning house, I don’t wanna go nowhere / It’s hard for me to listen when there’s miles and miles of distance,” he sings.
Other appearances from Ty Dolla $ign’s first signee can be found on Phony Ppl’s “to get home” as well as Steelo’s “Lord Knows.”

Slow dancing in this burning house, I don’t wanna go nowhere
It’s hard for me to listen when there’s miles and miles of distance
Feel your heart is drifting but you’re right there
I call you home but I might be alone, I can hear it in your tone
We’re in the danger zone
