John West Lovely Feat. Pusha T by John West
Recently-signed to Mercury/Island Def Jam, John West began his hustle as a street performer in Los Angeles, selling 35,000 CDs independently. Meanwhile, he packed out clubs on the Sunset Strip including the iconic Roxy Theatre. The industry took notice, and it's easy to understand why when you listen to "Lovely."
With his major-label debut dropping this summer, things are heating up quickly for this southern boy from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. "I like to get people swaying and smiling, it's pretty simple," West says, guitar in hand. Well, I like swaying and smiling, too, and West's music certainly elicits that response.
West is getting urban approval from names like Pusha T, who was introduced to John's music by Shay of N.E.R.D. Pusha is featured on John's just-released track, a breezy summer love anthem entitled "Lovely." He'll be opening for B.o.B. and Travie McCoy on college shows this spring, and is looking forward to finishing up his record which is being produced by studio heavyweights including Ari Levine of The Smeezingtons, Kevin Rudolf, Benny Blanco, The Stereotypes, Jerry Wonda, and hot young talent including Christian Rich, who produced "Lovely".
Up next, West is headlining Key Club in Los Angeles on April 8th, with up-and-coming Casey Veggies and Priscilla Renea opening the show. "I don't know where this train is headed," West laughed, "But I'm gonna enjoy every minute of it."
