The Kid Laroi, who shot to fame with his chart-topping single ‘Stay’ in collaboration with Justin Bieber, is going on a hiatus to focus on his debut album. The teen sensation took to his Instagram on Monday, November 15, to spill the details on the same. Instead of posting emotional messages of him taking a break, the social media users trolled the young crooner for taking a hiatus so early in his career.

The 18-year-old singer-songwriter, whose real name is Charlton Kenneth Jeffrey Howard, had dropped his debut mixtape called ‘F*ck Love’ in July 2020 that entertained the music lovers with 15 tracks. He followed it with two deluxe editions, adding more than 30 songs. Speaking of taking hiatuses, renowned musicians like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj, and Justin Bieber among others have all taken the same path in the past with an intention to focus on either their projects or to take care of their mental health.
