Nigerian popstar JOEBOY shares his new single “Lonely” (produced by Dëra) and announces details of his forthcoming album. The singer’s swift ascent and hitmaking talent have taken him over 10 African countries and beyond the continent; landing him coverage and plaudits from Rolling Stone, CNN, Complex, Pitchfork, and Billboard.
“Lonely” is the first taste of JOEBOY’s Somewhere Beauty and Magic, out Oct. 30, setting the tempo for the much-anticipated project from one of Afropop’s rising stars. A specialist in earnest love songs who’s never afraid to show his vulnerability, Joeboy lays it all on the line on “Lonely,” shooting his shot with the girl he’s had his eye on. Turns out she’s had her eyes on him, too.
With lyrics that capture the innocence of young love and the sting of youthful heartbreak, the 23-year-old crooner has carved his own lane within the increasingly crowded field of Nigerian pop stars.
Moral of the story: Never be afraid to share your feelings.
