Following the release of her new album JP3, New York’s Junglepussy is back today to share a new video for her standout single “All of You”. The video, directed by Vashtie, who has worked on videos for Kendrick Lamar, Solange, Justin Bieber, and many more, shows Junglepussy’s softer side, and is the first video from the project. JP is also excited to announce her headlining North American tour, set to kick off on September 20th in Atlanta. The tour will take JP through 18 cities in the US and Canada.
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.
In addition to releasing an album this year, Junglepussy also stars in an Andrew Bujalski film, ‘Support the Girls’ alongside Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson. The film premieres in theaters August 24th.
