Album: single release only (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Austin made this song available to his fans on Valentine's Day 2014. However, it's hardly new. "'U' was actually the first song that I recorded when I moved to Miami about two years ago, so it's kind of old but I've always loved the song," he said on Live From MTV. "It's always been one of my favorites and I just thought it would be cool to release it as a Valentine's Day gift to my fans."
  • Halfway through the song, Austin reveals his rapping skills. "Hopefully I didn't sound too white," he joked to MTV.
