Joeboy Announces His Upcoming Debut Album “Somewhere Between Beauty And Magic”
Nigerian Afropop artist Joeboy has something huge coming for his fans; his debut album. The artist in an interview with Audiomack’s Ayomide Tayo revealed that his album “Somewhere Between Beauty And Magic” will drop this year.
Speaking on the album, Joeboy says he intends for it to be exciting and refreshing.
“I want them to experience happiness because the way the world is right now, there is so much negativity and so much sadness,” he says. “I want to bring some form of positivity through my music. I want people to listen to my album and be happy and excited.”
Describing how the album will feel and sound like, Joeboy says;
“It sounds like beauty. It sounds like magic. Anytime I’m speaking about the album, I’m really, really excited because I believe I should have put it out [before], but it was held back due to some delays. That’s why anytime I speak about it; I can’t wait to put it out and let people see and understand what Joeboy is all about.” says the emPawa signee.
“It is an exciting album. It has a lot of smash hits on it. It’s different when it comes to singles. With singles, you have to do it in a particular way, but when you have a body of work, you can try different things. I think this album will showcase my versatility to a large extent.”

On approaching the forthcoming album differently from his “Love & Light” EP
“Yeah, obviously, there was a different approach. The EP was a bunch of songs I put together just to show people who I am. I remember when I dropped “Baby,” people didn’t know my face because it came with a visualizer. I wanted people to know Joeboy was the guy behind this song. That’s why I put all my songs together to form an EP so people could know they were from Joeboy.
The album is a totally different approach. I wanted to follow a story to a large extent, so it’s totally different.”
On his writing style
“I think it was based on observation and advice from OGs in the game. Mr Eazi played an important role in terms of developing my songwriting skills. I remember when I started recording songs, and I used to send them to him, and he was like, “Yo, you just need to calm down. You don’t need to prove to everyone you can sing.” You know when you are young, and you want to prove yourself. I think that kind of complicates songs in a way, so I try to keep it as easy, simple, and catchy as possible.”
On what he likes to do when he isn’t recording or flying across the world
“Joeboy is really an indoor guy. I most likely will be playing video games, working out, or reading books. These are what I would be doing if my schedule is completely free.”
