Joy Oladokun (Verve/Republic)
2/4/21

WHAT IT IS: Arizona native Joy Oladokun inspires aspiration and speaks to the power of representation as a Black queer woman through her music. As part of YouTube Music’s Black Voices Class of 2021, Spotify’s emerging artist RADAR U.S. program and Amazon Music’s Artists to Watch 2021 list, the self-described “Trap Tracy Chapman” has hit the Top 5 of Shazam’s Discovery chart twice in one month, while her single, “breathe again,” rocketed to #3 on Shazam after a sync on NBC’s This Is Us. Blending contemporary folk, R&B and pop, the singer/songwriter brings a level of transparency, authenticity and real-life soul to her music.
