Glover recently opened up about his thoughts on the music industry, saying that “no one has good intentions”.

Explaining his disenchantment with the entertainment industries, Glover said: “Before my first album came out, I wanted people to like me, and to realise that I had good intentions. Then I realised that no one has good intentions—we all just have incentives.”

He went on to recount a tale of his label’s boss “ruining” an intimate album playback.
