Can you talk to us more about your latest single “I’m Ready”?
Im ready Im so excited about. It’s a blend of r&b/hiphop/danchall/edm/afrobeat vibes. It’s a huge party haha! The concept is really dope. It’s about a guy that has been taking a girl that he is close to for granted for so long. He finally realizes it and becomes a better man. I’m excited about spreading this message to help make love cool again!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I mean I know many people could relate and most of my songs are personal experiences so I’ll let your imagination run free from there haha!
How was the filming process and experience behind the video?
Lots of laughter which I like to have around me. Very specific with the “love and basketball” themed scenes. This video was fun because Rizonthevid likes things to look REAL so he brings the real out of you to get the best scenes possible. Love um for that!
How was the recording and writing process?
I did this song in an hour. When I heard the beat the words and melody kind of just came out of me and I zoned in. While recording I literally envision everything I was saying so that I would sing it from an authentic place.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
My next Project is called “The Passport” and it’s coming but I am not in a rush honestly. I really want to go single for single right now and really get people dancing and relating as much as possible while I put final touches to the project.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
No release date yet but you’ll be the first to know! Project called “The Passport” because I was born in Liberia raised in The US and I love and am influenced from music all over the world and can relate to everywhere. So i feel this project has a little of everywhere but digestible where everyone in the world can relate and enjoy it. Call me The Passport!
What other aspects of love and themes will you be exploring on this new material?
I definitely speak about love but from my perspective and angle of looking for and finding love while striving hard for success in the music industry and trying to find that balance.
Any plans to hit the road?
Aug 18th excited to perform in the Harrisburg Music Festival and then Sept 22 in Boston!
What else is happening next in Joey CoStar’s world?
Been visiting Atl and La alot lately and doing a lot of writing for other great and popular artists so be on the lookout to hear Joey Costar songs on the radio near you soon!
