“Never settle for anything less than you want,” sings PJ on her life-affirming Atlantic Records debut. It’s a simple philosophy, but one often abandoned as dreams get discarded and visions altered. At it’s most uplifting, music reminds of us of the possibilities of what can be—and few contemporary singer/songwriters express those emotions better than PJ. Raised between North Carolina and Atlanta, the songs from the R&B magpie reflect an intense drive and unyielding hope. They inspire. They remind you what you’re really living this life for. As a teenager and young adult, the iconoclastic singer absorbed multiple influences, including the hyper-melodic cadences, lyrical nuance, and intellectual independence of Kid Cudi, Kanye West, and Drake. The finished product sounds something like an urban version of Adele. PJ’s songs are street-smart but sophisticated. She is the quiet girl in the back of the class with big dreams, ready to wow the room when called upon. Since signing to Atlantic in the first half of 2014, she’s penned infectious singles for Meek Mill (“I Don’t Know”), Wiz Khalifa (“True Colors” ft. Nicki Minaj), and B.o.B (“Not For Long” ft. Trey Songz).
