Lipstick Gypsy, who was signed by L.A. Reid and producer Salaam Remi, started out as just a one-time collaboration between John and producer Chris Liggio, but their chemistry was too good to just stop there. Chris, who has worked with everyone from Jay Z to Nicki Minaj, says that the group’s sound is an extension of what’s already in his own heart and soul.
