“Anytime I’ve dropped a song in the past two or three years that has to do with dating, relationships, love, [or] romance, they always get good feedback.”
[dropcap]TJ[dropcap] Pompeo is a singer in Atlanta, Georgia, who also raps. He loves to make music about relationships, and listeners like to hear him speak about these topics, so he decided to make a whole album about his confessions as a hopeless romantic.
“I didn’t want it to be a cheesy, typical album of corny love songs.”
Much of his new album, Confessions of a Hopeless Romantic is based upon three significant dating relationships he has had with women in the past few years, all of which have ended in them breaking up.
“I wanted to take different things from those three relationships and talk about them in songs. The honeymoon phase of falling in love; what it looks like pursing a female. Then having a relationship with her and crossing physical boundaries and how that can get messy.”
