Biography

Tina Parol burst onto the music scene with her first single “Who’s Got Your Money.” Released on iTunes on April 7, “Who’s Got Your Money” went into immediate radio rotation in Dallas, Reno, Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, San Antonia, and Corpus Christi. Even Perez Hilton chimed in, describing the song as, “power pop that makes you go grrrr!!!!,” adding that “it has you singing along the first time you hear it.” “Who’s Got Your Money” “officially” impacted at radio on May 19, 2009
Tina is a 21- year old New York City native who began writing songs at age 11, surrounded by music as diverse as the city she so proudly calls home. Raised by immigrant parents from Poland, Tina was encouraged at a young age to work hard and take her musical talents to the next level. Influenced by everyone from Madonna and Blondie to the Police and Queen, Tina grew up writing music and recording demos. By the age of 18 she had enrolled at New York University to study record production and engineering.At the end of her freshman year Tina was focusing all of her energy on her career as an artist, and things quickly fell into place. As fate would have it, David Ehrlich, a prominent music manager, ended up on her Myspace page and soon Tina was signed to Universal Motown records by Sylvia Rhone.
In 2008, Tina lent her songwriting talents to Britney Spears for her single “Rock Boy.” But this has not been her only success as a songwriter. She has also collaborated with stand- out songwriters such as Danja (Madonna, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Mariah Carey, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Duran Duran, Usher) S*A*M and Sluggo (Kelly Rowland, Gym Class Heroes, Metro Station), Matt Mahaffey (Pink, Beyonce, Smash Mouth, The White Tie Affair) and Espionage (Chris Brown, Beyonce, David Cook.
After having written songs with some of the best in the business, Parol is now focused on her own album which will be released by Universal Motown.
The songs on Tina’s album, “Shrinking Violet were inspired by her own stories and those of her family. As a result, the record is filled with an eclectic array of emotions. The album’s title is taken from a lyric from her song “Crazy”. “Shrinking Violet” is a metaphor for the timid, introverted high-school girl who eventually “blossomed into a strong, confident person”.
Her music showcases her incredible talent and diversity as an artist and songwriter. Tracks such as “Going Under” and "I Already Know” deal with the intense happiness of love-at-first-sight, while "Crazy" focuses on the pain and uncertainty it can cause. The heartfelt “What Else Do I Need?” tells the story of her parents’ struggles as immigrants and her grandmother's fight to stay alive during World War II.

Who's Got Your Money

Written By: Tina Parol

“Who's Got Your Money"
I had a feeling cuz you're not calling
You say no, but people been talking
Followed you around the block
Saw her. She ain't even hot
At first I was sad, at first I was crying
Then I got mad and I started buying
Feels good, swiping your Visa
Louis, Gucci, Flight to Ibiza

I left you a note
Letting you know you're broke

Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Me, Me
Look at me, here I go
Spending all of your dough
Who's got your money money
Money!
Who's got your money money
Money!

It's hard to believe how much I much I did for you
Everyone knew how much I adored you
But that's that and I ain't lookin back
Moving on in a brand new Cadillac
Can't stop- my heart still has a crack
Still healin, but all your cards are maxed
Bought everything that I ever wanted
Diamonds man, I'm just gettin started

Spent all your stocks and bonds
I got your social from your mom....

Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Me, Me
Look at me, here I go
Spending all of your dough
Who's got your money money
Money!
Who's got your money money
Money!

He broke my heart, so I took his money
(MONEY!)
It may seem funny but
M-O-N-E-Y
For every time that he made you cry
If he broke your heart, girl go get that money!
(MONEY!)
Green cash money
M-O-N-E-Y

I found the dough you were hiding in the tin can
Flew to Vegas with the girls for the weekend
Finally my heart is starting to mend
I'm feeling better now
Oh oh
Cuz who's got your money now?
ME, ME

Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Who's Got Your Money Now?
Me, Me
Look at me, here I go
Spending all of your dough
Who's Got your money money?
(Money!)
Who's got your money money?
(Money!)
I got your money money
Money, money mo-MONEY

Hold Onto Your Heart

Written By: Tina Parol

"Hold Onto Your Heart"

Some girls are so drunk on love
Those girls are all romance
Can't get enough
Smart are the kinds who don't care

But darling then came you
I'm falling down
Where's my head?
Spinning round

When the sky blows up
Stars collide and I lose all control
Think I like it say-Oh no!
Hold Onto Your Heart
When the moon freaks out
Sun is breaking
And I'm scaring myself
Cuz you're amazing say- Oh no!
Hold Onto your Heart
(Ay yo! Ay yo!)
Hold Onto Your Heart

I was just fine all alone
Chocolate and movies by myself at home
You made it hard, it's so unfair

But darling then came you
I'm falling down
Where's my head?
Spinning round

When the sky blows up
Stars collide and I lose all control
Think I like it say-Oh no!
Hold Onto Your Heart
When the moon freaks out
Sun is breaking
And I'm scaring myself
Cuz you're amazing say- Oh no!
Hold Onto your Heart
(Ay yo! Ay yo!)
Hold Onto Your Heart

We're on a freeway speeding
hearts are beating
Racing out of time
I can't believe the spell you're weaving in my life

When the sky blows up
Stars collide and I lose all control
Think I like it say-Oh no!
Hold Onto Your Heart
When the moon freaks out
Sun is breaking
And I'm scaring myself
Cuz you're amazing say- Oh no!
Hold Onto your Heart
(Ay yo! Ay yo!)
Hold Onto Your Heart

I'm Alive

Written By: Tina Parol

I'm Alive"
Take a deep breath, let it all out
You got absolutely nothing to be worried about
You're gonna laugh about this
It's been a wild ride from bottom to top
I keep climbing every crevasse and the view is looking hot now
I'm happy about this
So glad about this

Moving on beyond
Where everything is better
I'm Alive- Still breathing in the air
I'm Alive- and at a place where
I'm feeling every heavy stare
Hearing music everywhere
But don't worry cuz I'm
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Won't Go Down- I'm Alive

You know you got all the power to win
But you will never get it back if you never let it in
Well I believe it
Yea I'm gunna feel it
Those days of frowning down
I put them in a big box and threw them all out
Cuz if you want the something
You gotta stop at nothing

Moving on beyond
Where everything is better

I'm Alive- Still breathing in the air
I'm Alive- and at a place where
I'm feeling every heavy stare
Hearing music everywhere
But don't worry cuz I'm
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Won't Go Down- I'm Alive

I cut every tie that binds me
Everything is perfect
And I'm free without a care
Free without a care

I'm Alive- Still breathing in the air
I'm Alive- and at a place where
I'm feeling every heavy stare
Hearing music everywhere
But don't worry cuz I'm
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Never going down, Never going down- No!
Won't Go Down- I'm Alive
