Laffitte explained how he spoke to Chris every single day and that on the afternoon of his death, they were talking about upcoming plans for a performance at the 2017 Global Citizens Music Festival in New York in September. He said:

"He was just really excited about this specific idea that we were going to do. He said, 'We aren't just going to make pop history with this one, brother. We are going to make real history.' I would say the last couple of months, he was as optimistic and happy as I can ever recall him … He was so excited about all these things and a new record we were going to put out in the fall."
