Watch Joeboy's New Music Video 'All For You'

The buzzing Nigerian artist shares his latest single from his debut EP 'Love & Light.'

Rising artist Joeboy shares his new song and video "All For You," one of the standout tracks from his debut EP Love & Light.

The track follows the release of the artist's breakout singles "Baby" and "Beginning," and sees the artist dealing with a love interest who's facing an abusive partner.

"The song is basically about a girl in a relationship plagued by domestic violence," says Joeboy of the song and video. "The girl ends up falling in love with someone else who actually treats her right and therefore she ends up breaking up with her boyfriend because of him. It's a twisted love story between a girl and two guys."

Interview: Joeboy On Blowing Up and His New 'Love & Light' EP

In an exclusive interview with OkayAfrica, Nigeria's buzzing artist Joeboy reveals the details and cover artwork for his debut EP, Love & Light, and talks about his massive year.

2019 has been a dream year for Joeboy.

With just two singles—the hugely popular "Baby" and "Beggining"—the newcomer artist has managed to become one of the most talked about names bubbling out of the Nigerian music scene. Joeboy has also become a poster child for the huge potential that Mr Eazi's emPawa initiative can bring to new African artists.

As a member of emPawa's initial class, Joeboy used the investment money he gained to film a music video for "Baby," which went on to get 16 million Youtube plays and launched the single to No. 1 spots across Nigeria and Uganda on Apple Music. "Beginning" followed and had an equally large impact as it reached No. 1 in Apple Music Nigeria and Uganda, as well as top 10 spots in Kenya, Ghana and Zimbabwe.

Joeboy is now readying the release of his debut EP, Love & Light, due November 8, from which he's now sharing its lead single "Don't Call Me Back" featuring Mayorkun.

We sat down with Joeboy to speak about his debut EP and the massive year he's had.
