iHeartRadio On the Verge: #NewMusicTuesday with Joey Bada$$
Though you might have only just caught wind of hip-hop artist Joey Bada$$'s fresh, rhythmic sound, his presence in the music industry has not been going unnoticed. The Brooklyn-born 21-year-old has collaborated with the likes of Mac Miller and A$AP Rocky, and has a large, devoted fanbase that has only grown since the release of his 2012 breakthrough mixtape, 1999. The cleverness of his lyrics and the sharpness with which he delivers them attest to this young performer’s pure talent. His latest single, “Devastated,” is an uplifting yet relaxed track that will have you hitting replay all day long.
Bada$$ first debuted the summer song during his Coachella performance in April, and the hit quickly rose in popularity as fans new and old fell for its catchy vibe and graceful lyricism. “Devastated” indicates a maturity in Bada$$’s musical career, as he takes a turn from his usual style and shifts to favor this softer, spacier sound. It’s a turn that thrills his listeners and hopefully indicates more great things to come from the multitalented artist.
