Rising Nigerian popstar Joeboy today shares the new single, “Celebration”
The breakout act from Mr Eazi’s #emPawa100 talent incubator, Joeboy has become one of African music’s brightest new stars in just over a year, topping charts across the Continent with an improbable run of smashes.
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.
The Type A-produced “Celebration” follows Joeboy’s recent singles “Lonely” and “Call” as well as last year’s debut EP, Love and Light.
It also follows a string of notable 2020 collaborations including ‘Sun Comes Up” with Major Lazer and “Nobody” with Mr Eazi and DJ Neptune.
One of the year’s most widely heard Afropop singles, “Nobody” by Joeboy has topped Apple Music’s singles chart in eight countries and supplied the soundtrack to over 7 million dance videos on Triller since dropping in April.
“In a year that has been more torrid than fulfilling for many of us, we still need to give thanks and appreciate the littlest of things and that’s what ‘Celebration’ is about,” JOEBOY says.
“‘Celebration’ is a song of happiness, recorded at my recording camp in Ghana. It’s not a love song but a feelgood song that signifies that we shall be alright regardless of the challenges.”
This is a banger!!!
