We all need that one music banger to get the party started. It’s a formula that’s been working for a while and it doesn’t look like it will be changing any time soon.
That said, it’s only right that Staten Island’s own, JopauL, a rising pop artist has that banger to build the synergy between the ladies’ hips moving and the fellas’ enjoying what they see. A Staten Island, NY representer, JopauL balances his act as a songwriter, a man that can mic check one two one two as a lyricist and he can get down with the get down as a dance choreographer. That’s like a woman whose derriere is so big a man can set a champagne glass on her butt and she doesn’t even know it’s there.
What’s cool is how JopauL fell in love with music. According to the artist, his father used to put big bulky headphones on his mother’s stomach when she was pregnant and JopauL was in the womb. “This is a 4’9 woman,” he told RESPECT. by phone.
“If you could picture a huge belly, think of a watermelon, hanging out of my mother’s stomach that was us and it would calm us down to keep us from kicking the crap out of us. And it worked! Music was with us before we were breathing oxygen.”
Individually, JopauL has worked with producers who produced tracks for LL Cool J, Brandy, Ray J, Lil Wayne, Cheetah Girls, Monica, Carlos Santana and Yolanda Adams. And is now actively taking the talents of his brand and his career with over 250,000 combined plays on his soundcloud and being listed #90 on the top 100 independent national playlist chart thru digital radio tracker. “I like to make people dance,” he said. “I like to have a good time and have fun while doing it. In a nutshell, that’s me.”
A rising pop artist that has genuinely garnered comparisons to Pitbull, JopauL’s work dedication to his craft is standing out. Follow his journey via his Twitter and Instagram at @IamJoPaul
