Joeboy Shares Visuals for New Track 'Lonely'

Nigerian artist Joeboy has dropped the visuals for his latest track "Lonely".

After bursting onto the music scene a few years ago with his hit songs "Baby" and "Beginning", Joeboy continues to showcase his tremendous talent and versatility as a musician. Aside from his epic collaboration on "Nobody" featuring Mr Eazi and DJ Neptune, his own solo numbers including "Celebration" and the 2020 release "Call", have been praiseworthy.

In "Lonely", the Nigerian artist, who is admittedly the more popular face of Mr Eazi's emPawa initiative, tells the story of two neighbours who are interested in one another and neither want to be lonely nor apart from one another. The music video, which was shot in Lagos by Nigerian director, Adetula "KingTula" Adebowale, tells this story well with the couple eventually linking up and giving the audience a generally happy ending. The track itself is a smooth number with a mid-tempo pace accentuated by Joeboy's sultry vocals. If this track is anything to go by, the album promises to be an incredible body of work.

In a statement, the Nigerian artist says the following about the upcoming album:

"Working on this project was life changing — I met a version of myself I never knew before. The plan was to come up with a title that best describes love, without actually using the word love. Hence Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic. Because love is a perfect blend of beauty and magic."

The Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic album is available for pre-order here.
