PJ Morton Releases New Song ‘Please Be Good’


Five-time Grammy winner PJ Morton is back with his new single “Please Be Good.” 

The Afrobeats-tinged track, which Morton produced with P.Priime, finds him wanting to escape the stress of daily life for relaxation.

“I’ve been on the go, working so hard / I think I need a break / Every now and then, it gets too much / Much more than I can take / So take me to another place / Somewhere far away / I don’t need to be in control / I just want to let go,” Morton sings in the first verse.

Regarding the song’s creation, Morton says: “I was in Lagos, Nigeria and one of my favorite new producers P. Priime played this beat. I immediately took out my phone and started to record ideas. I love that it’s a mixture of so many vibes,” says Morton.
