NEW ORLEANS’ “DREAM RAP” ARTIST PELL
RELEASES ‘DOLLAR STORE’
PRODUCED BY LUDWIG GÖRANSSON
New Orleans’ born artist Pell premiered ‘Dollar Store,’ a new song produced by Roc Nation’s Ludwig Göransson, a Swedish producer known for work with Childish Gambino, Haim and composing music on Films (30 Minutes or Less, Fruitvale Station) and TV shows (Community, New Girl). The song will appear on Pell’s upcoming LP Floating While Dreaming.
“I’m excited to release Dollar Store because it’s a true showcase of what to expect on my upcoming project Floating While Dreaming,” explains Pell. “I aspire to relate to anyone who has had to go through a struggle to achieve true happiness. It’s a key to understanding how I assessed my struggles and conquered them by chasing my dreams. I hope everyone can enjoy and realize they’re getting to know the real me.”

Over ethereal production Pell lyrically reminisces about a past job as a Dollar Store employee while delivering aspirations to follow his dreams as an entertainer. A story-telling music video for the song, directed by Clay Harwick, will release soon.
Pell started singing and rapping at a young age growing up in New Orleans’ 7th Ward. Always around music, his mother was a professional opera singer. In 9th grade Pell was forced to relocate to Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina’s wrath. In 2013, Pell released his debut EP, Feel Good Summer. His music has been met with rave reviews.
Complex Magazine says he “showcases serious lyricism and singing abilities.” And XXL Magazine adds, he is “known for a high energy show and a versatile rap style.” On First Look Friday, Okayplayer.com declared Pell “the newest rapper to reinvent the NOLA sound.”
FADER Magazine premiered Floating While Dreaming’s lead single ‘Eleven:11’ and said, “all signs here point to only good things” calling Pell’s music “dream-rap.”
