Atlantic Records has announced the release of the long awaited special project from PJ. “RARE” is available now.
PJ celebrates “RARE” by joining fellow Atlantic recording artist K. Michelle on her “Hello Kimberly Tour” (see attached itinerary). The eagerly awaited dates began Tuesday, July 12th at Boston’s House of Blues and continue through mid-August. For compete details and ticket information, please see justpeej.com/#tour.
PJ has earned widespread acclaim and attention for her street-smart but sophisticated brand of contemporary R&B, rich with lyrical nuance and iconoclastic melodies. Hailed by NPR as “your favorite rapper’s favorite songwriter,” PJ is undoubtedly one of today’s most in-demand tunesmiths, with credits including Chris Brown & Tyga’s ”Bitches N Marijuana (Feat. ScHoolboy Q),” B.o.B’s “Not For Long (Feat. Trey Songz),” Wiz Khalifa’s “True Colors (Feat. Nicki Minaj),” and Meek Mill’s ”I Don’t Know (Feat. Paloma Ford),” among others.
Known to friends and family as Paris Jones, the North Carolina-born singer/songwriter first heralded “RARE” earlier this year with “Gangster,” praised by The Fader as “an anthem for anyone who thinks they might be too nice.” PJ’s “pen game is still on point,” declared VIBE. “Here, the chocolate crooner tells of her daily experiences with cruel people who irk her and makes her re-consider the idea of being a respectable, nice chica.” “’Gangster’ sounds like a contemporary version of the encouraging, accessible brand of music we would have heard from TLC one or two decades ago,” raved NPR, noting, “PJ delivers her contemplative message with a smile and an earworm of a beat, managing to make a question that broils in the pit of one's stomach feel like a non-issue — or, at the very least, like an obstacle that can be overcome.”
The “Gangster” companion video – directed by Snow Beach – is streaming now at PJ’s official YouTube channel, alongside additional “RARE” tracks including “Can’t Stop” and “Tell Me (Feat. Jevon Doe).”
As if all that weren’t enough “RARE” is further highlighted by featured guest appearances from G-Eazy and fellow Atlantic recording artist Ty Dolla $ign, who lends his distinctive style to the project’s “Come Down (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign)” (see attached tracklisting).
