Video Premiere: PJ Morton "Don't Break My Heart"
Okayplayer is extremely proud to host the video premiere for "Don't Break My Heart" from PJ Morton. In case the Grammy-winning writer and producer looks vaguely familiar that's because he also happens to be the keyboardist for mega-stars Maroon 5 and his first single "Heavy," featuring M5 front-man Adam Levine, has already gone viral via this lyric video. "Don't Break My Heart" is the first official-official vid, though, and a more proper introduction to PJ's genius--a talent for unforgettable story and soul-stirring melody he has shared with India Arie, Jermaine Dupri and LL Cool J in the past. Not surprisingly his new EP Follow My Mind First (out now via Young Money) features a grip of star collaborators including Jazmine Sullivan, Lil Wayne and, of course, Mr. Levine. See what we mean (above) and for the full PJ experience check him out live when he parachutes into your town on his spring tour (full dates after the jump).
