TRP.P (pronounced “TRIP-ee”) has been breaking barriers since day one on the Hip-Hop/R&B scene. Composed of Truss (producer, singer/songwriter) and Phoenix Pagliacci (singer/songwriter), the dynamic duo met in 2015 and have been collaborating in music and life ever since. This new track showcases the mastery of their craft, coupled with a burgeoning sensuality that they are adding into their creative process. This song was a fun challenge because not only have I not been singing lead for the past few years, I also haven’t been singing such sexual lyrics so publicly,” says Truss. “I’m a private guy, but the beat just brought that side out of us.” Phoenix agrees, “we’re rarely ever serious, much less overly affectionate in public. But I recognize that to be either is a privilege. Some people can’t even be affectionate in private for fear of being outed, arrested or even killed. This song is for the lovers, the fighters, and those who fight for the right to love out loud.”
In 2017, they released their self-titled debut EP, followed with their sophomore release 2TRP.P. in 2019. Their modern twist on 80’s/90’s inspired R&B gives way to powerful lyrics, which often champion queer love, justice and their communities. Currently, TRP.P is working on their second full-length album, which is slated for June 2022.
