David E. Johnson Jr, based in Memphis, TN, has released his latest single titled "Shake Em Off (feat. 1K Phew) [Extended Version]".
"This song was birthed after many years of me being influenced by the gogo music sounds of Washington, D.C." he explains. "I went to undergraduate and graduate school at Howard University in Washington, D.C., and gogo was all around me. As I moved from D.C. to Atlanta, GA, I was introduced to Makeba Woods, and I started working with her in the studio.
As we were recording some songs, I mentioned to Ms. Woods that I wanted to do a gogo song because of the musical influences that D.C. had on me, and Shake Em Off was born. For the Extended Version, 1K Phew of REACH RECORDS agreed to be on the track with me after sharing how much he loved the song after first listen."
