J. Dash’s ‘Wop’ Rises Up the Charts Due to Miley Cyrus’ Twerk Video

31 03 2013

Who knew that Miley Cyrus would be the person to bring twerkin’ to the mainstream. And yet, here we are.

Last week, Miley Cyrus released a video of herself twerkin’ with a unicorn outfit on. What makes the video especially interesting is that Miley Cyrus was dancing to “Wop,” a song by independent artistJ. Dash.

It’s a big look for the boy J. Dash. “Wop” was already a big record, but it’s now going to another level after Miley showed off what kind of moves she was working with.

J. Dash kicked it with GlobalGrind, where we talked about Miley Cyrus’ twerkin,’ his musical background and what he has coming up next.

GlobalGrind: Is it true that “Wop” is back in the Billboard Hot 100?

J.Dash: Oh, yeah.

What number?

I’m not sure yet. I just had my interview with Billboard today and they told me I had made it back in the top 100, so I don’t know what number it is yet. Fresh news!

You don’t have to say dollar amount, but is there a big check coming your way?

I would hope so. Honestly, when something like that happens you can’t really plan it. You can’t plan for something that big to happen that quick. And so you really try to sit back and analyze the fallout from it, not just the occurrence that happened. But everything that happens around that.

Obviously you’ve seen the Miley Cyrus video, right?

Yes, sir. Miley hit me up that night.

Wait, so you and her have a relationship?

She hit me a while ago, like months and months and months ago telling me she was a fan of the record. And so, you know, we follow each other on Twitter. We DM each other every now and then, and I had no idea that she was going to post the video. And I was actually sick in bed at the time when she posted it. My phone starts going off like crazy from people hitting me up: “Have you seen it? Have you seen it?” And I didn’t know what they were talking about; I was about to turn my phone off. And then she messaged me, she was like ‘Did you check my Facebook page?’ I was like ‘Nah, I didn’t check it yet.” And I went and checked it and I saw the video and I was like ‘This is crazy.’ I was like ‘Do you realize what’s about to happen?’ She was like ‘Yeah, you dig it?’ I was like ‘I love it.’ We joked after that; we said we’re going to get matching unicorn tattoos.

Have you actually ever met her?

Not in person. We tried to meet last time in L.A. I was shooting a video in L.A., and she was actually supposed to come to the set, but she had some family stuff that was going on, and she wasn’t able to make it to the shoot. But next time I go back there, which should be in the next few weeks, we’re going to try to meet up.

What did you think of her dancing?

You know, she has successfully made twerking mainstream. And I say for that, she deserves a salute.

What has happened to you since the video dropped?

I’ve gotten a lot of Twitter followers recently. A lot of people hitting me on Facebook and Instagram and you get a lot of love on the social networks. The biggest change for me is that people are discovering other things from me now. And that’s something, as an independent artist, I struggled with for a while. Because you have a product that people know you for and we joke that “Wop” is the biggest record that nobody knows. Because “Wop” went gold before Miley Cyrus made that video, so like she made that song as mainstream as it can get. But it’s an unbelievable successfully song to be independent. And so, as an independent artist, you don’t want to be known as a one hit wonder, you want to make sure people realize this is what else I got. And me being a musician from childhood, I’m like, yeah, I did this thing but I really want you to check out all of these other things. That’s probably the biggest effect, other people are checking for me. People are discovering that I’ve been playing the piano for a long time, and I do music production as well, for movies and TV — stuff like that. People are realizing this dude might actually be a problem.

Explain your musical background a little bit.

I started playing piano when I was five. I played by ear. I took lessons for a minute, it was like classical stuff. I play by ear real strong. I can hear something one time and play it back. But the classical music got boring to me, because it was so structured. Then I got into blues and jazz music when I was 11, 12 years old. I was in Memphis on Beale Street as a 12 year old, in clubs, playing with the BB Kings and the Eric Claptons. I got to meet these people when I was that young. And those are the people I looked up to. So my musical background is very different than a lot of these dudes out here, man.

So what is it about rap that made you say, this is where I wanna take my music?

It was most relatable to me. It was the easiest way to get my story out. I had been playing piano for so long. I come from a very structured background. There wasn’t a lot of music played in my house. I had to go find it on my own. It was the thing that stuck with me the most. I was 14 years old, I discovered hip-hop, and I was like, I’m not going back to anything else.

Last year you put out Tabloid Truth, your debut album, are you happy with how it did, the reception it got?

It’s a bittersweet feeling for me, cause I got a gold record out of that album. And it was my first released single. You can’t really be mad at that as an independent artist. You can’t be mad at that, especially nowadays. But I felt like there was so much more of a message that didn’t really get highlighted on that album. And when people go back and listen to the songs like “Tabloid Truth” and “Take it Hard” they get a better sense of who I am as a person, not just as an artist. So you feel like that should have been highlighted more, but at the end of the day you take the good with the bad.

What do you have coming next?

I have a record I’m gonna release called “Winesday” featuring T.Pain that is, honestly, one of the hottest records I’ve ever heard. I’m just happy to be part of something so big.

It’s the first joint off of the new album, and it’s a huge, huge record, and it’s gonna be off a project that I am just finishing.

Rate Miley’s dancing in the video on a 1 to 10 scale.

In my opinion, I give it a 10 and half. You’re asking the person — she just changed my life. It’s changing my life, think about it this way: I got a gold record, I’ve had a lot of press, but never on the level to where somebody has made a dance to my song and on the next day it’s on Good Morning America.

Miley Cyrus & Kelly Osbourne on Going to Sorority Bootcamp For So Undercover

30 03 2013

That sounds like one form of bootcamp we’d actually be up for

Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osbourne starred together in So Undercover, a film that sees Miley play a private-eye hired by the FBI to go undercover at a college sorority to hunt out THE BADDIES. Her character’s a bit of a tomboy, so when she has to pose as a soroity sister she gets into a bit of a flap over shedding her tough-girl image and knuckling down to hair braiding and nail painting.

Turns out, actual real-life Miley was a bit curious about how the whole thing was gonna work out too, and the film’s producers sent her and Kelly Osbourne to a real-life sorority to hang out and ‘observe’, to get a real feel for what it was like to be part of.

The girls chatted about their experiences while they were shooting (so their hair is a total blast from the past in this video), and it actually all sounds a bit awesome.

If you missed So Undercover in the cinema, PANIC NOT as it’s out on DVD next week. Hurray!

Dearest Smilers:

Here at Cosmo, we’re pretty big Miley fans—we love her badass haircut, her edgy and ever-evolving style, that twerking video, this tweet (hahaha), and her no-BS attitude. Not many stars get as real as Miley did in her Cosmo interview, opening up about photo scandals and marriage to Liam. Miley is a total original at a time when you don’t see that very much, in Hollywood or in real life.

But as much as we love Miley…nothing could prepare us for how much you love Miley.

Our tweets introducing her issue were retweeted by the thousands—the most popular in Cosmo history. The issue flew of the shelves, generating immediate reports that it was sold out in some areas. And when Miley told you to decorate newsstands with her fab cover, the photos started rolling in by the hundreds. (A few of our favorites are saved here.)

“Did y’all realize how dooooope [my] fans are?!?!” Miley tweeted at us in the midst of the madness. “I loooove it.”

And so do we! To thank you for being the most amazing fans—and for making our jobs so fun—we’re giving away ten copies of the March issue signed by Miley herself. To enter, just comment on this article: Tell us your favorite thing about Miley’s interview, the best behind-the-scenes moment, her most amazing fashion look, whatever. On April 5, we’ll randomly pick ten winners and post their names here.

Please note that you must live in the USA and be the age of majority within your state to win. (We know Miley has heaps of international fans and we’re sorry—it’s a legal thing.) Make sure you check out the official contest rules here.

Finally: Big ups to Miley for taking time out from recording her BOMB ALBUM to sign these issues for you. After seeing firsthand the power of the Smilers, we understand why she did.

Demi Lovato Will Return to the Judge’ Panel For Season 3 of ‘The X Factor’ on FOX

28 03 2013

Chart-dominating singer, songwriter and actress Demi Lovato is ready to take Simon on for round two! Lovato jumps back in her seat as the fan-favorite judge on THE X FACTOR, the hit singing competition series which launches its third season this fall on FOX.

Last season, Lovato, the youngest judge and mentor to the Young Adults category, brought a fresh perspective to the panel and won over legions of THE X FACTOR fans with her playful banter, spot-on critiques and genuine encouragement. Lovato returns to the show amid the breakout success of her latest single, “Heart Attack,” which recently achieved gold status in the U.S. within just four weeks of its release.

“I couldn’t be happier that Demi wants to come back this year,” said Simon Cowell. “She’s a superstar in her own right and was a fantastic mentor last year. Even though she can be really, really annoying – I truly enjoyed working with her and so did the artists. I’m especially pleased she’s back, even during her world tour!”

“I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on THE X FACTOR,” added Lovato. “Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel. I look forward to taking my previous experience and applying it to make this season even better!”

“We couldn’t be more excited for Demi to return to THE X FACTOR next season. She’s an incredible mentor, an insightful judge and we know she’ll bring her amazing energy, enthusiasm and charm to the panel,” said Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment, FOX. “She also isn’t afraid to stand up to Simon or say what’s on her mind – and we can’t wait to see more of that honesty and fun next year.”

“Demi’s enormous popularity is evident by her latest No. 1 single and her current tour selling out arenas across the globe,” noted Trish Kinane, executive producer, THE X FACTOR. “She did an impressive job last season identifying and mentoring new talent and we’re delighted to welcome her back for Season Three.”

Lovato has had a phenomenal start to 2013, spurred by the release of “Heart Attack,” her first single off of her untitled, upcoming fourth album. The single recently debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes chart in 18 countries (including the U.S.) and No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (the second-best Billboard debut of the year). The single became the most-added song on Top 40 Radio in the U.S. the week it premiered, and is currently being played on more than 190 radio stations. To date, there have been more than 20 worldwide Twitter trends for “Heart Attack.” The song was produced by The Suspex and co-written by Lovato.

“Give Your Heart a Break,” Lovato’s second and final single off of her third studio album, “Unbroken” (2011), received critical acclaim from contemporary music critics, who praised the production, as well as Lovato’s vocals. “Give Your Heart a Break” spent 32 weeks on the Hot 100 in 2012 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. The song also reached No. 1 status at both Mediabase and Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) in the Top 40 format. The first single off of Unbroken, “Skyscraper,” debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes chart, No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Digital Singles chart and No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Skyscraper” has sold more than 1,800,000 digital copies, and was officially certified platinum in the United States.
