Joeboy has come through with ‘Somewhere Between Beauty and Magic’ (SBBM), his debut studio album.
The 14-track body of work was put out in the early hours of Thursday — two days after its tracklist was released.
Joeboy’s ‘SBBM’ project has its production credits going to Dera, Type A, BeatsByKO, MOG, Big Fish, Tempoe, Mex Flairz, E Kelly, Killertunes, and Semzy. It was mixed by Oxygen Mix and mastered by E Kelly, Oxygen Mix, and Air.
Born in 1997 in Lagos, Joeboy made his music incursion under the platform of ‘Empawa Africa’, a record label owned by Mr Eazi, a singer who discovered him in 2017. His genre of music is Afro-pop and R&B.
After his 2018 single ‘Faaji’, Joeboy’s subsequent song ‘Baby’ of 2019 became a hit track and did massive numbers on streaming platforms. The visualizer music video for the single also surpassed 31 million views on YouTube.
In 2019, Joeboy went ahead to put out his debut extended play ‘Love & Light’, wherein he featured Mayorkun.
The 23-year-old has won a number of prestigious plaques including the ‘Best Artiste in African Pop’ prize at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) and the ‘Best Pop’ at the 2020 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival.
He was also nominated for multiple City People Entertainment Awards and The Headies on account of his success.
