Listen to our exclusive interview above with famed pop dance music artist Ashley Paul Sunday May 15 at 10am PT/1pm ET. We went behind the scenes of her new single, the infectious fantasy “Come And Get Me,” talked about her return to music, plans for whats next, touring this summer and more. 

Fresh off her explosive re-emergence on the dance/pop scene with the Until Dawn remix of her classic 80’s hit “When Boys Cry,” Ashley Paul is offering a sly and sexy invitation to “Come and Get Me” on her latest single, a remix package featuring mixes by Ogazumu (Mad3 for M3, SHAB featuring Martinez Twins), Ray Rhodes (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Ariana Grande) and Until Dawn (Pink, Lisa Stansfield, Doja Cat, Ava Max), whose remix of “When Boys Cry” recently reached #2 on the Swiss Dance Chart Top 100 and is now Top 40 in Germany.

Penned by Ashley, Jackies Boy (Madonna, Lil Wayne, Flo Rida), Gemini Musiq (Post Malone, Justin Bieber) and music impresario/label owner Jason Dauman and co-produced by Jacky’s Boy and Gemini Musiq, the playful and infectiously discofied “Come and Get Me” is the singer’s way of reminding us in these challenging times that as in all good things in life, taking risks is everything.

There was a sexy story, a cat and mouse sort of game in my fantasy world. He’s a hologram, or is she a hologram? Do they ever really meet? Or do they exist in that tunnel chase in perpetuity? The song is my way of saying, ‘Stay tuned.’ During these past few years, relationships have taken on a different form, with more people looking for and finding love online, with no one really knowing who the other one was in a traditional sense. It’s sort of daring and alluring yet frightening at the same time.

Back when Ashley was a teen dance sensation and released the original version of “When Boys Cry,” an insightful promo ad said that “the natural setting for this song is the radio. When it gets on the airwaves, watch out!” In 2022, she’s still at the top of her game, inspiring everyone to “watch out” again with “Come and Get Me.”
