Our Song of the Day is a hot new single from up-and-coming Toronto singer-songwriter, Joéllen.
We first caught up with Joéllen back in July at UPN6XT’s Set It Off showcase. At the time she was promoting her single, “Should Be,” which was one of the standout performances of the all-female showcase.
“‘Should Be’ was about several different experiences rolled into one song,” Joéllen told HipHopCanada’s King Cut.
“When it comes to dating, I’ve always felt a pressure to rush into things or to get serious when talking to someone, but really I just want to go with the flow.”
Her new single is the Binnz-produced “My Place,” which has been receiving steady radio support on 93.5 The Move, and was also featured on HipHopCanada’s new series, Unplugged.
The song takes on the woman’s perspective of being a side chick, taking you on a fantasy ride from the angle of the mistress; a topic that women don’t often voice in their music.
“‘My Place’ came to me while I was working with the producer of the beat,” says Joéllen on how the song came together.
“He was singing the main line of the chorus and I decided to take the whole theme in that direction. I thought it would be fun because a lot of male artists speak about that topic but female artists rarely do.”
You can find “My Place” on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Google Play, and Spotify.
