Billboard Dance named L.A.-based producer LP Giobbi an Emerging Artist for the month of October, and "Jungle Queen," a collab with TT the Artist, proves our point.
The energetic verses from Florida-born, Baltimore "club queen" TT push the vibrant single — premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Oct. 31) — to wild frontiers.
"Jungle Queen" is steamy and tribal, which speaks to Giobbi's role as co-owner of Animal Talk, an art collective launched by Sofi Tukker. Giobbi is currently on tour in support of the NYC duo's RIP Shame world tour, then she'll jump on board as support for Madeon's Good Faith run. She also just signed with Thrive Music, who releases "Jungle Queen" across all platforms Friday, Nov. 1.
"During the first beat I played for TT during our first session together, she started imagining a full jungle scene and wrote her verse in minutes,” Giobbi tells Billboard Dance. “My goal was to take the listener to wild yet luscious place, and TT fleshed out that concept perfectly."
“I immediately thought of a party in the jungle and a summoning for people to come together and have a good time,” TT the Artist adds. “The bass and percussiveness of the track inspired me to deliver a super energetic verse that would be just as hype as the beat. I think we created a guaranteed dance floor anthem.”
"It's exciting to see this next wave of female producers finally take their place at the forefront of electronic music,” says Thrive Music’s Ricardo Vinas. “I think LP has the talent to truly become one of its leading stars. We are extremely excited to be working with her."
