Without notice, social media star Jake Paul released a single called “It’s Everyday Bro,” on May 31. The song quickly climbed to No. 2 on the iTunes chart — and helped him secure his first Billboard-charting song.
This week, the song debuted on four charts: Bubbling Under Hot 100 (No. 2), Pop Digital Song sales (No. 12), Rap Digital Song Sales (No. 5) and Digital Song Sales (No. 21). To celebrate, Paul made us a reaction clip to the news and talked to us about his inspirations (Drake and Lil Wayne) and his pop-up concert on Tuesday (June 6), which saw a crowd of over 3000 in less than five hours’ notice.
When did you become interested in making music?
Drake has always been a huge inspiration of mine, and same with Lil Wayne. Whenever I hear their music it makes me want to make my own, so I took that energy and went and did it as a spur of the moment kind of thing.
How did you come up with the concept for “It’s Everyday Bro”?
“It’s Everyday Bro” started with me talking about the things I do on a day-to-day basis. From there, the creativity was unleashed and the song was the result.
Do you plan on releasing more music?
I definitely will be releasing more music. This time I’m going to work on it for more than a day though.
You just did a pop-up show in LA, and gave your fans less than five hours of notice. How’d that go?
We were pumped by the incredible turn out. Despite it being a last-minute surprise, over 3,000 fans shows showed up and packed the venue. People were lined up around multiple city blocks and we were glad we were able to show everyone a good time and interact with everyone.
