New Music: PJ Morton – “Claustrophobic”

Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and Maroon 5 member PJ Morton released his single “Claustrophobic” via exclusive premiere on Solange Knowles‘ SAINT HERON this week.

The single, which is off of Morton’s upcoming album, Gumbo, was inspired by his frustration with people in the music industry wanting to limit his artistry.

Morton told SAINT HERON:

I’m an artist who has chosen, outside of being a part of Maroon 5, to follow a path that is not necessarily the most popular one. Those in positions of power are usually trying to adjust you and tailor you to fit what they would like to sell to the masses. This was at a time where I was going around to different labels, kind of letting them listen to my music, and it was at that point where I realized what was most important to me. Yes – I want a lot of people to hear my music. Yes – I want to play huge venues. But I don’t want to do it at the expense of not being who I am or at the expense of not saying what I want to say. That is basically where this song came from. For me, it became the anthem for the dreamer and a message to all of the doubters.

PJ Morton’s album, ‘Gumbo,’ will be released this April.

Take a listen to the official track above.

During the Essence Festival weekend in New Orleans, McDonald’s held an exclusive invite-only Bounce Brunch just outside of the Convention Center where the other daily festivities were being held.

Guests enjoyed McD’s special All-Day Breakfast Menu, french fries, their classic beverages, and even Mimosas, along with other speciality cocktails. Special performances were held by local NOLA bands, Tank and The Bangas, and New Breed Brass Band as well. Tyrese was even onboard to serve up a few items, as he revisited his childhood days working for the veteran company, and took a few flicks with some of the employees.

Music was provided by the one and only DJ D-Nice.

It was indeed a great moment for the Essence Fest weekend!
