Ashley

Album: Hall of Fame (2013)
  • This song is about the downfall of Sean's relationship with his longtime Detroit girlfriend, Ashley Marie, whom he split up with in early 2013. He wrote the song when he was still with her, and he recruited Miguel to sing the hook. Sean told 106KMEL that the song is a beautiful homage. "She did a lot for me… always supporting… Just cause we're not together, I don't want to change the name of the song," he said. "She deserves a beautiful song like this."
  • How does current girlfriend, Glee actress Naya Rivera, feel about the song? According to Sean, the effort is one of her favorites on Hall Of Fame. "I played it for Naya and she loved it, so I had nothing to worry about on that end. It's a true song," Sean said. "I'm not going to just change that because of what's going on. It's a good song."
