He's cute, he's funny and we're loving his sound! New singer Jawan Harris stopped by the TWIST office recently for a chat, and we talked about everything from his song inspiration to what he looks for in a girl. Get an exclusive look at our interview below!
T: Can you tell me a little about your music?
JH: Well, about my music, it's about me liking girls and me singing for all the ladies out there. My songs are basically for all different types of ages, and I don't want anybody to feel left out.
T: Very nice. How did you get started making music?
JH: I got started making music when I first started singing around the house, and...
T: So you were pretty young?
JH: Yeah, I was at least about one.
T: How'd you come up with the idea for your single "Nobody"?
JH: Well, I came up with that song by actually knowing that I had to do my best, both in singing and showing my personality.
T: Is the song about anyone specific?
JH: It's for the lovely ladies out there.
T: Ooh! Okay, tell me a little about your experience shooting the music video.
JH: It was my first video, so I was kind of nervous, but I knew that once I started, I would get into it and then have fun. 'Cause that's what it's mainly about: having fun and just basically...having fun!
T: I also like your song "Another Planet." How'd that whole concept come about?
JH: Well, I like the song 'cause it has a lot of swag. You have to know when to basically come in, and it's crazy 'cause Chris Brown is also in the single, and it's awesome.
T: Cool! Can you share with our readers your most embarrassing moment?
JH: My most embarrassing moment would have to be when I ran out of the boy's locker room. Well I didn't actually run out. My friend took my gym shorts and ran out when I was getting ready to change. So he ran out, and I almost ran out, following him. Luckily I was thinking.
T: Haha! Also, can you share with us a weird or quirky fact about yourself, for our True Confessions column?
JH: Well, I like to act, 'cause I'm always trying to be funny. I may not be funny all the time, but you know, hopefully I'll be funny most of the time.
T: So you like to do like comedies?
T: Do you have any celebrity crushes?
JH: Keri Hilson!
T: And what's the craziest thing that you've done to get a girl's attention?
JH: The craziest thing I've ever done was sing. She was just trying to diss me, so I was like okay, I got my magic...
T: Sounds like a good plan. What do you look for in a girl?
JH: She has to have a great personality and know how to keep me laughing...and be a great kisser. Haha!
T: What can fans look forward to next?
JH: I have a new song called "Another Planet" featuring Chris Brown, and I want to tell my fans a video will be coming soon!
T: Okay, we'll keep watching for it! And now for our final question! Is there anyone else you'd like to collaborate with?
JH: I would love to collaborate with Justin Bieber! I would also love to collaborate with Jasmine Sullivan, Usher, Rihanna, and, of course, Keri Hilson!
T: Well thank you very much, Jawan! JH: Thank you.
