Junglepussy by Paolo M Testa
Following the release of her video for standout song “All of You”, New York’s Junglepussy is back to share a new single. “They Know” is the first offering of new music from JP since she released JP3 earlier this year. JP is also embarking on her headlining North American tour, kicking off last night in Atlanta, the tour will take JP through 18 cities in the US and Canada. The tour caps off a successful first half of 2018 for Junglepussy, with the release of her album and also starring in an Andrew Bujalski film, ‘Support the Girls’ alongside Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson.
After debuting online in 2014 with her single “Cream Team,” JP built a cult following around quick-witted, tongue-in-cheek lyricism that populated her debut album Satisfaction Guaranteed. The blueprint for her persona was a no-holds-barred exercise in self-love and empowerment, something that drew the attention of the media. Her stand out track, “Bling Bling” was streamed over 1.5 million times, and “Picky Bitch Checklist” became a mission statement for fans all over. On follow-up Pregnant With Success, JP created lush landscapes and character-lead narratives that cemented her as a formidable force in NYC rap. While lecturing at Yale University, JP dedicated the album to “anyone who’s ever planted a seed, anyone who’s ever waited patiently for something to come into fruition.” Junglepussy’s new album is a natural continuation and elevation of her catalogue, filled with trademark humor and the joy of self-empowerment.
