Down in the DMs: See Why Singer Sammie Has No Shame in His Game

He shows us how to master the art of direct messaging.

Sammie is all grown up and not so innocent anymore, although he’ll say otherwise. Remember his 2000 hit “I Like It”? He was only 12 years old then. We recently caught up with the now 29-year-old R&B singer amid release of his new EP, I’m  Him, to see how he navigates his DMs.

“I’ve accidentally, purposefully slid into someone DMs before. I mean, that’s what DM’s are for… to slide in them. A few times I’ve slid in to someone’s DMs,” he coyly said.

His rules are simple, abosolutely NO screenshotting, and make sure you do your research first. And if you’ve ever felt slightly stalker-ish on social media (you know that moment when you wind up on your ex’s sister’s best friend’s page), it’s completely OK because Sammie owns up to lurking, too. Nice to know there’s more of us lurkers out there.
