The R&B singer has always been very giving to his loved ones, and last week, he revealed to ET that he just purchased quite the gift for his 8-year-old daughter, Shayla.

"I just bought my daughter an island," he said at the GQ Men of the Year party. "Can't say [where]. She knows all about it and the island is called Love Island. I'll be putting it up on my Facebook soon."

"For me, I'm just really focused on being able to leave a legacy for my little angel to take over. She's my boss. I work for her. Every deal I close is on her behalf. So when I travel, every meeting, lunch, conversation I have is directly inspired by Shayla."
