American singer-songwriter Joy Oladokun has shared details of their new song, Changes, and upcoming record, Proof Of Life.
In advance of their upcoming release, Oladokun has shared her new single Changes, which is a reflection of the artist’s growth and the changing world around them.
“This album is evidence of how I live,” Oladokun shared in a statement. “I hope these are helpful anthems. I started making music because I wasn’t hearing from the ‘everyday human being’ on the radio. I hope this resonates with anybody who feels normal and needs a little musical boost to get through the day.
“I’m average. I do this job because I love what I do. I put so much care, craft, and intention into it. I’m making music to live to.”
Oladokun, a proud queer Black person and daughter of Nigerian immigrants, has seen their career thrive in recent years. Their upcoming project Proof Of Life follows her breakthrough major label debut, In Defense Of My Own Happiness.
