DANCER, SINGER AND SONGWRITER.
HE'S JUST MADE A HUGE SPLASH
IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY WITH HIS

GET READY.
WE HAD A LOT OF FUN.
TAKE A LOOK.

(music plays)

A clip shows a caption of “Shawn Desman. Get Ready” and Shawn's shoes walking on
the street. It changes to Shawn on split screen playing basketball with Anjulie
and on the other screen sitting down wearing a blue jean jacket and long sleeved
blue shirt. He has a buzz cut and is clean-shaven, with stud earrings.

Shawn sings, “YEAH, YEAH, BABY
FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE CRIB... .”

Anjulie says SO WHEN DID YOU
START PERFORMING?

Shawn says YESTERDAY I THINK
WAS MY FIRST TIME.

Anjulie says OH, REALLY?

Shawn says NO, I STARTED PERFORMING
WHEN I WAS NINE YEARS OLD.

A clip of Shawn's music video shows Shawn dancing and in the center of screaming
fans.

Shawn sings 'COME ON, GET IN,
AND GET READY
BRING YOUR CREDIT AND
YOUR MONEY INSIDE
COME ON, GET IN,
AND GET READY'

Anjulie says LET'S TALK ABOUT DANCING.
WHEN DID YOU START
TAKING LESSONS?

Shawn says I STARTED TAKING
DANCING SINCE I WAS 12.

Shawn says OKAY.

The clip continues with him dancing and showcasing his moves.

Anjulie says AND DID YOU FIND IT WAS HARD
AS A GUY TAKING LESSONS?

Shawn says YOU KNOW WHAT, IT
WAS KIND OF WEIRD.
BECAUSE THERE WAS ONLY TWO
GUYS IN MY DANCE STUDIO.
ME AND ANOTHER GUY.
I DIDN'T START OFF BY TAKING
JAZZ OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
I STARTED OFF BY
TAKING HIP HOP.

Anjulie says YOU MENTION TORONTO IN
YOUR SONG
GET READY.
LOTS OF CANADIAN ARTISTS
WOULDN'T DARE TO DO THAT.
DO YOU THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO
RECOGNIZE WHERE YOU ARE FROM?

Shawn says I DEFINITELY THINK IT'S
IMPORTANT TO REPRESENT,
YOU KNOW, REPRESENT
WHERE YOU ARE FROM.
I MEAN, IT'S KIND OF LIKE
SELLING OUT IF YOU DON'T AND
JUST PRETEND YOU'RE FROM
SOMEWHERE ELSE OR SOMETHING
LIKE THAT, YOU
KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
SO I DEFINITELY THINK IT'S
IMPORTANT TO REPRESENT.

Shawn says 'COME IN AND THROW IT UP
Mr. DJ COME ON
AND TURN IT UP
THIS IS HOW WE ROCK
IT IN THE T DOT
COME IN AND THROW IT UP
Mr. DJ COME ON
AND TURN IT UP
THIS IS HOW WE ROCK
IT IN THE T DOT'

Anjulie says YOU'RE BEEN IN OTHER
MUSIC VIDEOS LIKE LEN,
I THINK, AND
ALANIS MORISSETTE.
AS A DANCER?

Shawn says MM-HMM.

Anjulie says AND NOW YOU JUST
RECENTLY SHOT YOUR OWN.
HOW WAS THAT EXPERIENCE?

Shawn is shown dancing and being interviewed on split screen.

Shawn says IT WAS EXCITING, MAN.
I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT, I
JUST COULDN'T FALL ASLEEP.
I JUST COULDN'T FALL ASLEEP.
I HAD TO BE UP AT 5 O'CLOCK IN
THE MORNING TO DO THE VIDEO,
AND THAT WHOLE DAY I WAS JUST
ON SUCH AN ADRENALINE RUSH THAT
IT'S LIKE, WE FINISHED
AT 3 IN THE MORNING.
SO THINK OF LIKE GETTING
UP AT FIVE IN THE MORNING
AND FINISHING AT THREE.
I WAS NOT TIRED
THAT WHOLE DAY.
AND EVEN WHEN I GOT
HOME I STILL WANTED
TO STAY UP AND DANCE
AROUND AND DO STUFF.
I WAS SO EXCITED.

Shawn sings ‚'OVER HERE AT THE BAR
EVERYTHING LOOKING
GOOD SO FAR
I SEE A SHORTY COMING MY WAY
BETTER THINK
ABOUT WHAT TO SAY
SHE SAID, YO,
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
YOU KNOW IT'S YOU I FEEL'

Anjulie says HOW DOES IT FEEL HAVING A
NUMBER ONE SINGLE OUT RIGHT NOW?
LIKE, DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU
WERE RECORDING IT THAT IT
WOULD TURN --

Shawn says IT FEELS GREAT.
WE HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WAS
GOING TO BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS
IT WAS WHEN WE
WERE RECORDING IT.
WE JUST THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD
SONG, A GREAT SONG, YOU KNOW,
A CLUB BANGER.SO I MEAN
SO THAT DAY WHEN MY MANAGER
CALLED ME UP AT 7 IN THE
MORNING, HE'S LIKE, YO, WE'VE
GOT A NUMBER ONE SINGLE.
AND I WAS LIKE, YEAH MAN.
AND THEN I HAD TO STAY UP.
I WAS SO EXCITED, I
COULDN'T GO BACK TO SLEEP.
I HAD TO TELL EVERYBODY.
SO I HAD TO START CALLING
EVERYBODY AT 7 IN THE MORNING.
WE GOT A NUMBER ONE SINGLE.
SO IT WAS GREAT.

Shawn is shown dancing and singing for his music video with backup dancers
behind him.

Shawn sings 'COME IN AND THROW IT UP
Mr. DJ COME ON
AND TURN IT UP'

Anjulie says WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU
FIRST HEARD IT ON THE RADIO?

Shawn says I WAS AT HOME.
MY MOM WAS UPSTAIRS, AND SHE'S
LIKE, SHAWN, TURN ON THE RADIO.
SO I WENT TO THREE DIFFERENT

- I WENT TO THE CAR, I WENT
UPSTAIRS, I WENT DOWNSTAIRS
BECAUSE I WANTED TO SEE HOW IT
SOUNDED ON DIFFERENT SYSTEMS.
IT WAS EXCITING.

Anjulie says WHO WROTE ALL THE
SONGS ON THE CD?

Shawn says I WROTE AND PRODUCED
HALF OF THE ALBUM.
AND THE REST WERE DONE BY
SOME PRODUCERS FROM EUROPE,
ATLANTA.
THEY WORK WITH TLC, BACKSTREET
BOYS, SO SOME PRETTY BIG NAMES.

Shawn says 'COME ON, GET IN
AND GET READY
COME ON, GET IN
AND GET READY
COME ON AND IN
THROW IT UP'

Anjulie says WHEN YOU WERE GROWING UP,
WHO WOULD YOU SAY WAS YOUR
BIGGEST MUSICAL INFLUENCE,
EITHER A MUSICIAN OR PERFORMER?

Shawn says MICHAEL JACKSON.

Anjulie says YEAH.

Shawn says NO DOUBT.

Shawn sings 'MY PLAYERS WHO
BE WAITING IN LINE
COME ON, GET IN
AND GET READY
ALL MY LADIES WHO
BE DRESSING REAL FINE
COME ON, GET IN
AND GET READY
ANYBODY WANT TO
FREAK IT TONIGHT
COME ON IN, GET
IN AND GET READY
BRING YOUR CREDIT AND
YOUR MONEY INSIDE
COME ON, GET IN
AND GET READY'

Anjulie says WHAT DO YOU DO FOR FUN,
OUTSIDE OF WORK AND MUSIC?

Shawn says WHAT DO I DO FOR FUN?
I JUST STAY HOME AND SLEEP.
YOU KNOW, SLEEPING IS FUN
TO ME, FOR SOME REASON.
I LIKE TO PLAY BASKETBALL.
I GO TO MOVIES.
I TRY TO DO AS MANY
NORMAL THINGS AS I CAN,
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
IT'S KIND OF HARD NOW BECAUSE
EVERYWHERE I GO PEOPLE
RECOGNIZE ME, SO IT'S LIKE KIND
OF CAUSE A LITTLE COMMOTION
EVERYWHERE I GO.
I TRY AND DO FUN THINGS
LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

Anjulie says DOES IT EVER GET ANNOYING
WHEN PEOPLE RECOGNIZE YOU?

Shawn says YOU KNOW WHAT, TO ME IT
DOESN'T GET ANNOYING BECAUSE
THE FANS ARE WHAT MAKES YOU.
SO IT'S LIKE I JUST
WANT TO PLEASE MY FANS.
I NEVER WANT TO COME OFF
ARROGANT OR ANYTHING LIKE
THAT, SO I JUST TRY AND DO
WHAT I CAN FOR THEM BECAUSE
THEY'RE DOING
THEIR THING FOR ME.

Shawn says 'COME IN AND THROW IT UP
Mr. DJ COME ON
AND TURN IT UP
THIS IS HOW WE ROCK
IT IN THE T DOT
COME IN AND THROW IT UP
Mr. DJ COME ON
AND TURN IT UP'
THIS IS HOW WE ROCK
IT IN THE T DOT'
