Pharaoh sat down with Pynk to discuss bringing back pop music and what he wants in his girl.
What does your music bring to the scene?
My music brings a new elevation of urban EDM pop and much more with high Energies and a strong sound to draw your attention to the dance floor for all ages at any environment. Im a pop artist and I want to bring back pop to us. We created pop. Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown and the greats did pop music which is derived fom R&B and soul but even that was stripped from us. So yeah, I’m here to return pop to its root and make people have fun again. I’m mixing pop with EDM and hip hop. I love diversity!
Tell us about your first single “So good” that has become a popular hit?
So Good was produced by The Exclusive. Its about the rough times I’ve endured and rising above those things. Its about me evolving. Its my hug to the world and all those feeling down wrapped into music. o Good is a high-elevation song that gets you moving and grooving as soon as you hear it. Its a mix of all crafts into one.
How has your childhood influenced your adulthood
Growing up in the city of New York was tough. Like any City you have to overcome All Odds .but the music industry and songs that were played on the radio they kept me motivated and elevated. Music kept me pushing and moving forward, Specifically, Mary J Blige Biggie Smalls Tupac Tyrese and Ginuwine. The music those artists had always put a smile upon my face. Through their artistry I felt better days were coming. That’s one of the reasons why I’m here today.
