Days before 'Khalifa' (Feb. 5, Atlantic) drops the singer gets candid: "Stand up and use your voice."

"See You Again," featuring Charlie Puth, is up for a song of the year Grammy Award. How would you celebrate if you won?

I would celebrate by just making more good music. I don't really focus on awards, but it would definitely motivate me to put more stuff out there. Me and Charlie are definitely going to work on some more music. That's my man, so it ain't nothing.

Maybe for Fast & Furious 8?

(Laughs.) That would be tight!
