New York's Junglepussy has just announced her new album. JP3 is Junglepussy's third studio album, and will arrive on May 11th. The new album is highlighted by features from Wiki, Rico Love, Gangsta Boo, and Quiñ as well as production from longtime JP collaborator Shy Guy, Kashaka, and Sporting Life. To coincide with the announcement, JP is sharing a new single from the forthcoming album. "Trader Joe" follows previously released singles "Sate of the Union" and "Showers," and is an upbeat track about the importance of self-care. "Trader Joe is about loving myself," explains JP. "Having fun liking someone, and not allowing them to ruin my life."
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 humour 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 premiered last at South by Southwest Film Festival and will be available in theaters later this year via Magnolia.
