“For me, I like the songs to be a reflection of life, you know, and my life entails all of that. It entails love, it entails the weather being nice, you know. It entails my faith. So, I talk about all those things and pull from them as I see fit, or really, I say the music tells me what to say, you know. Once I start with the music and start to hear the melody, then it kind of tells me what it’s saying, you know. And I’m just a vessel at that point, trying to say what I feel in here.” – PJ Morton explained

PJ Morton spoke with DL about why performing is his favorite art form, how lockdown was a creative release for his songwriting, and what it was like to work with Stevie Wonder and Nas on “Be Like Water,” featured on his “Watch the Sun” album. Later, PJ performed the single with poet, Amir Sulaiman.

“I mean, right now, my favorite song ever is the one I’m doing here, ‘Be Like Water.’ Stevie Wonder is my hero, and he’s on that song with me. And that would have been enough, but then Nas is also on that song with Stevie. So, right now, that’s my favorite song.” – PJ Morton stated
