Today marks the release of Joshua KYEOT’s debut music video. He has been releasing music for a couple of years, with his feature on Tyde’s 2015 single “Anything” being his most streamed track to date. As for his own work he released his debut solo single, “Only One” in 2017, with his follow-up “Playground Sweethearts” becoming his most-streamed Spotify solo track.
Having grown up in both Accra, Ghana, and Croyden, UK, Joshua KYEOT continues to prove his ability to draw inspiration from both places for his music. His voice is unique to him, and easily identifiable to the extent where he can easily showcase his vocal ability. Making waves in his career, he sold out his first headline show at the Servant Jazz Quarters and performed at BBC Introducing.
This song, “Still”, is one of three tracks on his EP She Loves Me Not, which was released last month. It has been produced by Max Marlow, engineered by Ollie Dow, and mastered by Matt Colton/Alchemy Mastering; whilst, the music video has been directed by Amber Saunders.
Talking about the song and the video, Joshua KYEOT said: “‘Still’ is about knowing that you deserve better for yourself and even though you may be pursuing better it can be damn near impossible to relish in your improved life. The person who hurt you is what you wanted and what you still want.”
