It's not goodbye forever, but it is "goodbye for now. "The final chapter of The Kid LAROI's F**k Love era has arrived.

The 18-year-old Aussie Alt-Pop star will be stepping out of the spotlight following a wildly successful year that saw a hit single with Justin Bieber, shout-outs from New Kids On The Block, and incredible live performances including a guest spot next to Miley Cyrus on Saturday Night Live, and a set at Audacy's We Can Survive concert.

After posting a brand new music video for his single "Still Chose You" featuring Mustard, LAROI scrubbed his Instagram grid and dropped a letter to his 3.9 million followers explaining the reason for his break.

“I know that record is a fan favorite, so I felt that it was only right for that to be the video that finally closes the ‘F**k Love’ era," LAROI told readers. “Last week I went on a small vacation for the first time in a while," he continued. "During that time I started thinking, and I made the decision that I need to take some time away from everything and focus on the next project; my debut album. I’m going to miss you all beyond words can describe, but I do believe that this is what I need to do to give you all the best music possible.”

Dates begin on January 29 in Phoenix, AZ, and run all the way through June 11, where the trek ends in Auckland, NZ.
