G-Eazy is turning over a new leaf.
The singer, who is talking about maturity in his albumThese Things Happen Too, spoke to PEOPLE and touched on his experiences and growth over the years.
"You live and you learn. And theoretically at least, you grow from your experiences and you hopefully learn from your mistakes, or the heartbreak and the hurt," G-Eazy, 32, says.
"It helps you identify certain qualities you need out of a partner, where things have gone wrong in the past, where things have gone right, but also how to be a better partner myself," he says.
He continued, "I need to listen and work to be what somebody else needs as well. And that's very essential."
