Fall in love with Joeboy’s New Afrobeats Singles, “Adenuga” and “Concerning”

Joeboy (@joeboyofficial) is an Afrobeats superstar from Lagos, Nigeria. Not too long ago, he returned with two wholehearted tracks, “Adenuga” featuring Qing Madi and “Concerning,” that showcase two contrasting sides to the artist’s character. From the inception of his career, Joeboy has cemented himself as the quintessential lover-boy, and these new songs only serve to reinforce this persona while delving deeper into the complexities of love and relationships.

“Adenuga” sees Joeboy teaming up with budding sensation Qing Madi to deliver a heartfelt anthem celebrating the enduring power of love. In a landscape frequently dominated by toxic portrayals of romance, Joeboy offers a refreshing perspective, championing the ideals of fairy tale love and grand gestures.

Discussing the single, Joeboy stated, “Love is beautiful but can be annoying when it’s unrequited. In the moment, it’s annoying and somewhat painful but that shouldn’t stop you from putting yourself out there again and again. If anything, it prepares you for when you find the one.”

Speaking about collaborating with Qing Madi, Joeboy expressed his admiration, stating, “Madi is so talented. I’ve been a fan since she did a cover of my song ‘Body & Soul’ last year. We have been looking for the perfect song to collaborate on and when she heard ‘Give You The World,’ she fell in love with it and delivered a sick verse.”

On the flip side, the second single “Concerning” delves into the darker aspects of love, harnessing an uptempo, spaced-out groove and shedding light on the confusion and pain that often accompany unrequited affection. Through introspective lyrics and soul-stirring melodies, Joeboy takes listeners on a journey through the tumultuous yet rewarding waters of love and relationships, capturing the raw emotions that come with navigating matters of the heart.

“Adenuga” and “Concerning” follow the success of Joeboy’s previously released single “Osadebe,” which has garnered over 9.4 million streams since its release.

Exploring themes of self-reflection and positive affirmations, “Osadebe” is a cultural anthem that dominated the music scene in the southeast and south-south regions of Nigeria in the early 2000s. Through his lyrics: “I no dey cross my lane, I’m living like Osadebe, Osondi Owendi,” Joeboy asserts his individuality, expressing a determination to chart his course in the music industry without succumbing to unnecessary comparisons and pressures.

Encapsulating the artistic sensibilities of his sound, the K-Dreamz produced “Osadebe” is a testament to Joeboy’s versatility and evolution as an artist, offering a glimpse into the musical journey he is embarking on. The single sets the stage for a series of releases culminating in a much-anticipated EP towards the end of the year.
