I have to admit that I was kind of late to the PJ Morton train. I’d heard some of his songs in passing these past few years, but it wasn’t until I heard “Say So” with Jojo last year that I paused in my tracks and actually listened. The song had such simple, yet powerful lyrics and their vocals on it are BANANAS! Their tones complemented each other and I had to find more music by this guy who absolutely killed the track with one of my favorites. I did some digging on Spotify and it wasn’t long before I found the ‘Paul’ album and his other live records.
Then I saw him on the Terrell show, yeah the same show that who’s host just dropped the most EPIC cookout mix. PJ’s appearance on that show cemented my adoration for his voice and God-given talent. I added “Say So” to my morning mix and would seriously listen to it two or three times before leaving my house every morning. Then he announced this acoustic-ish album. His piano album. He and Jojo dropped video clips on Instagram of them singing “Say So” in an intimate concert setting and I knew then that this album was going to be F-I-R-E…and I was right. He dropped the album on Valentine’s day and I’ve been listening since. Please do yourselves a favor and take a listen below. And once you finish listening to this album go through and check out his previous works. You won’t be disappointed.
