Singer-songwriter NJ Taylor To Release New Single 'Pop Army' on May 6th
Pop singer unveils new single for spring/summer with her EP release coming very soon.
Montreal singer/songwriter, NJ Taylor, embraces the bubble-gum world of female pop this spring/summer with the release of her up-tempo and highly addictive single, ‘Pop Army’ out on 6th May. With female pop artists absolutely dominating the charts in 2015, NJ Taylor plans to keep the party going in 2016 with her release of ‘Pop Army’ as well as urging others to join her in her pop crusade.
The new single ‘Pop Army’ is from NJ’s self-titled debut EP. The track has also been remixed by top charting UK DJ Cutmore and also by well-known Mexican DJ J Zuart, which will be out in spring along with an acoustic version.
The upbeat pop/dance track, co-written with Los Angeles based Adien Lewis, is an homage to all the pop greats, especially Michael Jackson, Madonna and ABBA, NJ’s biggest inspirations. The video, directed by NOMAD, draws from elements of Lady Gaga, Madonna and MJ in terms of dance, costume and concept, NJ says.
‘This is a reflection of our generations/Hypnotic beats get us lost in the rhyme….It will never let you down/It will always be around….Come join the pop army.’ She sings.
‘The song started with the title, Pop Army’ says NJ. ‘I always thought it sounded really cool and wanted to write a song called that. I spoke with my cowriter, Adien, about the idea and he was on the same page. We would write a song as an homage to all the big pop figures that led to what pop is today – Michael Jackson, Madonna….ABBA.’
‘We were extremely inspired by those three main artists, so we wanted to have a song that brought a little bit of that funkiness. At the same time, I was really inspired by Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.’
At a workshop in Toronto, songwriter Rob Wells (Justin Bieber, Backstreet Boys) critiqued the demo. ‘He had the best comments; he compared it to Janet Jackson’s ‘Rhythm Nation’. He gave me clues how to make the song better, which we applied and that’s what you hear today.’ NJ says.
