You Can't Pin the Location in Manny Pemberton's, "GPS"

American singer and songwriter Manny Pemberton arrived as a squeaky-clean teen Pop/R&B artist with his first single, "Girls All Over The World."

This title earned the singer three Beat 100 Awards and the #2 music video in New York City on Video City TV. While there was nowhere to go but up from here, this singer was only getting started.

The Cincinnati-based R&B singer, songwriter, and entertainer is currently making noise with his hit single, “GPS.” Taking an early 2000’s approach to the instrumentation, you’re fully immersed in a seamless concoction of gushing charisma.

The smooth and sultry vocalization that Manny Pemberton exudes has you falling under his spell as he waves his lyrical wit upon the enthralling masterpiece that is, “GPS.” Taking you into his world of carefully curated cadences, Manny Pemberton invites you into his mind with an effervescent appeal that is sure to have his fan base flocking to him.

As we dive into the songwriting, we’re made aware of a plotline that reflects on a guy who is much too busy to be tied down in a relationship. Manny Pemberton turns up the heat and allows us to simmer in a transmission of Pop-fueled R&B that embodies all characteristics of a certified hit.

With “GPS,” already going viral on numerous platforms such as Dubsmash, Triller, and TikTok, it is more apparent that Manny Pemberton fits right into the pocket of intoxicating bops that make your hips swing.

“GPS,” is available on all streaming platforms, and Manny Pemberton comes well equipped with the hypnotic vigor guaranteed to stay stuck in your head long after the song is over.

We love the vibes of your latest single, “GPS.” What moment inspired the creation of this song?

Thank you for having me. The inspiration came to me after I heard the chorus of the song.

We love the 2000’s styled ambiance that sits in this track. Could you please take us into what the creative and recording process looked like for “GPS”?

Well the hook “Shawty gotta GPS on me, etc...” was actually introduced to me by my good friend (Aaron Freeman) who’s a wonderful songwriter, I built the storyline around the hook. From there, I reached out to my uncle (Jimy Bleu) an amazing musician and producer, and my good friend (LOVRemy) another wonderful producer and songwriter. Then the results are what you hear.

How does it feel to have one of your songs going viral on Dubsmash, Triller, and TikTok? Do you think this will play a role in how you write music from now on?

It’s very humbling. Actually, before the song was released I posted, I believe it was 20 seconds of the song and people were hyping it up. My DMs were blowing up, people were asking when the song is dropping and then the next thing I know on Tik Tok everyone was doing the #GPSChallenge. I couldn’t believe there was a challenge going on to the song, that’s when I decided to release it. It actually falls into place with how I write my songs, ie; music that will make people feel good with a good storyline.

What are you most excited about next in your career?

I’m looking forward to branching into all avenues of show business that I can, like acting, I love musical theatre, and hopefully collaborating with other artists.

What has been keeping you inspired to create music?

I’ve been writing and performing since I was 10 years old, and I love it. It’s what I am born to do. I come from a family of musicians and entertainers, I’m a fourth generation. It’s important to me to keep my family’s legacy going.
