Star’s manager Ramond “Lee Danja” Seaton first heard about the singer when his mother reached out to him about doing some promotions. Danja eventually met the singer when they had an initial meeting with him and his family. During the meeting Star played some of his songs for Danja as they discussed working together and career advice. After a short time later Star’s mom and Danja reconnected where Danja expressed his interest in signing him to a management deal in which Star and his mother agreed. Danja began looking after his affairs and would hangout at the studio all the time, and the pair would start to collaborate on several tracks. When they recorded “No Behavior” they decided they had something good enough to get on the radio. Danja later said that his support of Star’s fledgling career initially led him assuming the roles of DJ, manager, road manager and security guard. In 2018 Star released the brand new single “No Behavior” along with the music video with Lee Danja Worldwide, LLC and the song has had tremendous success since the release.
