Jon Waltz has always been much more than just a normal “rapper” and he has always been about much more than just hip-hop. His last single — which we proudly debuted — showcased that approach, and he’s continuing to progress down that path with his latest record, “Justified.” “Justified” is pop and R&B done Jon Waltz’s way, and is the sort of smooth, melodic jam your upcoming weekend needs in order to begin on a high note. The song itself comes from a dark place, but the nature of its sound should put anyone in a brighter mood. Waltz has expressed an affinity for artists like Justin Timberlake and other pop icons, and he’s certainly starting to let that admiration express itself in his own music. You can listen to “Justified” and read Jon Waltz’s explanation of the effort — given to P&P — below.
“This song came from a time period of depression and self-reflection… lost everything that I thought was important to me. I lost all of my friends, and this was the only way I knew how to deal with it. I hope anybody battling their personal demons is able to hear this song, embrace their reality, and then improve their reality.”
