Nigerian music superstar Joeboy has shared his latest single, “Contour,” out now on all DSPs. Listen HERE.
A bluesy guitar melody from Nigerian musician Kemena drives the meditative track, building tension for what Joeboy, paradoxically, calls a “feelgood heartbreak song.” Just like the heart-wrenching end to a complex relationship, listeners will find it difficult to get “Contour” out of their heads.
“Contour” is set to appear on Joeboy’s upcoming sophomore album due out later this year from Mr Eazi’s emPawa Africa. The “Contour” music video, shot in Ghana by Babs Direction, will drop shortly. Until then, viewers can vibe out to the visualizer HERE.
“A contour is something that’s not straightforward, that’s not symmetrical, not a straight line,” Joeboy says. “This song deals with the contour of a relationship. It’s a heartbreak song, but it’s a ‘feelgood’ heartbreak song.”
With over 1 billion streams of his music, Joeboy is one of today’s most successful African recording artists. His latest releases include “Cubana” and a version of the upcoming album track “Spiritual Gbedu” released via COLORS.
Those tracks follow a massive 2021 campaign that saw Joeboy issue his debut album, Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic, followed by his most successful single to date, “Sip (Alcohol),” which has amassed over 400 million streams to date.
