When Will Packer approached PJ Morton to sing the theme song to a new reality dating show that he was producing for OWN, Morton jumped on the opportunity. His melodic tones set the tone for each episode of the series Ready To Love, now beginning its fifth season of Black singles in major metropolitan cities looking for love. To celebrate tonight’s season 5 premiere and give the people what they want, PJ has finally released “Ready To Love” as a full song.
Being the prolific songwriter that he is, PJ fleshes out the track with the addition of a second verse, bridge and more harmonies that complete the budding love story. “You’re always on my mind, don’t know what I was waiting for / I guess I still had some fear, but now there’s no need to look anymore,” he sincerely croons, making it easy to fall for this song.
“Every time an episode would play, I would get messages asking me to release the song…Only problem is – there was no song. Only the 15 seconds you hear existed,” PJ admitted on his socials today. “But now after keeping the song alive for many seasons, commemorating the fifth season of Ready To Love starting tonight, I have finally finished the song ‘Ready To Love.'”
Season 5 of Ready To Love premieres on OWN tonight at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT and will find DMV singles trying to make a love connection. Watch the trailer below after you listen to PJ Morton’s fully realized “Ready To Love.” Be on the lookout for more new music from Morton who is in album mode right now recording his next collection of hits, Watch The Sun.
