WOWASHWOW drops whimsical nostalgic hip-hop reimagined single “Pure Imagination” with intricate R&B elements

Transporting the listener into a completely different world with her intricate sound, WOWASHWOW infuses a variety of elements from R&B to soul around her signature freestyle hip-hop sound in the addicting new single “Pure Imagination” – which is a reimagined track of the iconic classic hit by Gene Wilder from the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film. This is the follow-up to her previous single “Class Enrollment”.

WOWASHWOW is a singer-songwriter hailing from Los Angeles. She wrote her first song at the age of six and just didn’t stop, showcasing her musical talent. Early on in her career, she acted as the lead guitarist and vocalist for the punk-rock band Rise From Ashes. This led to some awesome opportunities including opening up a tour for The Ramones’ guitarist, Marky Ramone, as well as recording her first album under the direction of legendary musician and record producer, Steve Albini. At the age of 18, she moved to New York City where she was influenced by underground hip-hop and ballroom culture. Now that she’s living in LA, she’s gone on to perform at many shows, opened for Snoop Dogg and Travis Barker, appeared at the Soul Train Awards 2022, and charted on the Hot300 List. She’s got some incredible opportunities lined up soon alongside a summer tour that includes San Francisco Pride and Venice Pride. The future is looking bright for this determined singer-songwriter and with her set to release her sophomore album, “The Algorithm” in the summer, WOWASHWOW is ready to make an impact.

This addicting new single, “Pure Imagination” reimagines the Gene Wilder hit from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film soundtrack, that we all know, keeping the whimsical essence of the song whilst twisting it to WOWASHWOW’s style. Stripping toxicity away from our lives and bringing a self-aware and self-confident attitude to the table, WOWASHWOW uses all her tools in her box to create an anthem that deserves to be heard on repeat. Fierce and in control, this singer-songwriter knows how to build up a nostalgic feel, put an ode to Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable”, strut her way through our speakers and spread self-love and a confident attitude to us all. We will be streaming “Pure Imagination” by WOWASHWOW on repeat as this is a total jam. What a way to make a song your own, put your own stamp on it from iconic hip-hop vibes to twisty pop and R&B melodies alongside her soulful vocal, wrapped around a nostalgic atmospheric energy – this is a top-tier track and excites us about her upcoming sophomore album, “The Algorithm”.
