R&B singer Sage The Gemini recently shared his thoughts on new streaming service Apple Music and the TV battle between Fox’s “Empire” and Starz’s “Power” series.
Asked about the possibility of joining Team Apple, Sage said it would take a few big stacks.
“If I get Drake money, I’ll release it for free,” Sage said when asked if he would release his next album through Apple Music. “I would love to have a role on either show, [‘Power’ or ‘Empire.’] They both are great shows and I think I could give an Emmy award winning performance.” (Soo Detroit)
