PJ Makes A Splash With Her 'Walking Around Pools' EP
Proving equally adept behind the microphone as she is behind the pen, Atlantic Records artist PJ has been causing a stir with her recently released 'Walking Around Pools' EP as she steps into the limelight after having had behind-the-scenes success as a songwriter for the likes of Chris Brown, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa and others. Drawing shoutouts from industry heavyweights including Diddy, DJ Drama, Lupe Fiasco and Ty Dolla $ign, the EP, which includes features by Hit-Boy and Gizzle, sees PJ exuding an assured self-possession and 'eyes-on-the-prize' confidence while also displaying an equally self-aware sensitivity to both the emotions that life's struggles can engender and the dreams that a hard-scrabble existence can spawn.
Her sweetly sensitive voice carried by the EP's polished production, PJ explains that the EP reflects her own experience of having to find a place for herself in a not always welcoming world, saying 'the heart of my music, to me, I feel like it comes from being the underdog and not really people seeing me how I wanted to be seen, and, like, not giving me a chance...so I kinda just started writing, like, how I would approach stuff; it was like I was writing for me', adding that, 'I represent so many people, so many people that aren't where they want to be. I think most of my stuff is about...going for what you want regardless what everybody else thinks'.
