Lyrics Born Opens Up With Video for “Can’t Lose My Joy” ft. Aloe Blacc

We kept my wife, Joyo Velarde’s 15 year battle with non-hodgkins lymphoma a secret from the public until now,” explains long-standing hip-hop artist, LYRICS BORN, who has just released the video for his most difficult and personal track yet, “Can’t Lose My Joy” Ft. Aloe Blacc‘Can’t Lose My Joy’ (f/Aloe Blacc) chronicles her being diagnosed at a time when we were working, touring, recording artists with our careers just beginning to blossom. We hope this song inspires you to keep pushing and staying optimistic. There is always hope.

The track was recorded with longtime friend Aloe Blacc who helped Lyrics Born through the strenuous process of putting the emotions to song, “This was by far the hardest song I’ve ever written in my career. I had a very hard time opening up about the concept with Aloe Blacc, and when he sent me the chorus he wrote and recorded, I just cried. He captured my feelings so accurately, it floored me.

Lyrics Born continues, “We are blessed to be in remission now, but with that demon looming, you are never totally at ease in life. Seeing it through successfully gives you the confidence that no obstacle is insurmountable when you have spiritual grounding, love and support from the people that matter to you. If nothing else, that is what I want people to take away from this song. Hope.”
