Joeboy's debut album, "Somewhere Between Beauty and Magic," was released in 2020 and received positive reviews.’ The 14-track album rocked Nigeria at a time it was battling the Covid-19 lockdown.
His debut album was life-inspired and it touched all the nerves a new album should touch. He started with ‘Baby’ and the reception was overwhelming, setting the stage for the album launch.
Joeboy had a rather modest 2022 with ‘Sip (Alcohol) which was popular. However, he did not do much of music for the past year leaving his fans with a dozen questions about musical silence. No music also means he did not enjoy as much commercial success with new songs as he did in 2021. But, with the scheduled release of his sophomore album, Joeboy will be looking to reassert himself as a force in Nigerian music.
