Usher’s “Good Kisser” Producer Pop Wansel & His Father

Usher Good Kisser producer Pop Wansel

We met up with “Pop” Wansel  and his father,  Dexter Wansel in Philadelphia on a beautiful Spring day. “Pop” worked on tracks before being joined by his father.  This father and son represent two generations of hit makers. Their names and talents are synonymous with hits by Patti Labelle “If Only You Knew” (1983) and Usher “Good Kisser” (2014).

“Pop” has been busy lately, crafting songs for Usher, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and most recently, Mary J. Blige, as part of the forthcoming Think Like A Man Too Soundtrack. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as his father was an equally creative force during the halcyon days of Philadelphia International and Black Music.

Talent, family history & values are amongst the things a father bequeaths his children. During our visit the duo explained their relationship with music; how the elder Wansel taught his son how to craft songs as opposed to merely making beats; and most importantly, creating the type of childhood for “Pop” that enables him to now, “love my child with all my heart.”
