Guest Room Sessions: Krista Angelucci, ‘Jungle’
For November's installment of The Boot's Guest Room Sessions, pop-country singer-songwriter Krista Angelucci is sharing her song "Jungle," alongside fellow artist and songwriter AJ Kross. Press play above to watch the pair's stripped-down version of Angelucci's forthcoming new single.
Angelucci and Kross recorded their Guest Room Sessions performance of "Jungle" at the all-local Nashville Roots boutique in Music City. The clip showcases Angelucci's formidable vocals and killer harmonies with Kross -- not to mention the song's wildly catchy (pun intended) "wild like a jungle" hook.
"All that I was lookin' for was havin' some fun / Then you came along," Angelucci sings in the chorus of "Jungle." "Got me spun / All tangled up in the vines / So divine, this feelin' / It's wild like a jungle."
"I asked AJ to be my guest on this song because he is one of the most talented people I know," Angelucci tells The Boot, "and he's singing the backgrounds on the track." She co-wrote "Jungle" with her friend Shannon McArthur, who's composed songs for MTV and A&E television shows.
Born in Massachusetts, Angelucci now calls Nashville home, and has shared the stage with a number of the city's brightest stars, including Hunter Hayes, Kip Moore and Jo Dee Messina. "Jungle" follows her second EP, Love Me Crazy, which she released in 2016.
"Jungle" is set to be released to radio in the coming weeks. Readers can visit KristaAngelucci.com to keep up with Angelucci.
