PJ Morton is a talent who I've been meaning to delve into further and what perfect timing this post has considering Morton's releasing his major label debut come 2012. He comes bearing some fruits from this labor in the morsel of "Built For Love" which has the New Orleans singer-songwriter-instrumentalist (and "sixth" Maroon 5 member) trading vocal swoons with none other than Jazmine Sullivan. To think she said she was going to "retire"....heh.
No need to check Sullivan into Shady Pines Retirement Home nor think this will be the last time you'll hear PJ---these two really fire it up and are a great match. They have an equally great song as their backdrop, as it's a lush soulful sway with a keen peppering of Earth, Wind & Fire influenced horn work and harmony. Very nice indeedy. I am quite anxious to hear what PJ is going to drop next , and thankfully I can keep track of what is to come as his Tumblr page reveals all that is to come.
