grown manning

verb; derivation
To act as a grown man; to act more mature. The singer in the promo used to be in a boy band; now he is a solo artist. The boy band of course targeted teenagers with its songs; its videos also were catered to teenagers. Now as a solo artist, the singer can expand his fan base by playing more mature R and B music with sexier music videos. By progressing in his music from pop group to solo star, the singer basically is going from being a boy to being a man.
 
I’m really grown manning it now.
