Earlier today we received a really dope email from First Nations-Métis Canadian artist and First Nations activist Joey Stylez.
Along with sharing a fresh new visual for his birthday celebration-inspired single, “Super Power,” Joey revealed some plans for 2020 that will definitely excite his growing fanbase.
“Next year will see me releasing a new single per season followed by an album in the late summer titled, 3 EYE HIP. Hope you stick around with me on this crazy ride!”
The new Red Rockerz-produced “Super Power” was created after Joey hit the studio after a memorable night out celebrating his birthday this past May:
“My partner and I had just gotten home from celebrating my birthday with a classy dinner out. We were both dressed to the nines, and in high spirits. Everything seemed so spacey – I felt like I was on top of the clouds. Transferring that feeling of pure ecstasy into the studio, I blacked out and entered this flow state. I felt a special kind of high. My brand new track (prod. by French producers RED ROCKERZ) was born.
The supporting music video for “Super Power” was directed by Aurelien Offner, with Maxime Bedard taking credit for the video’s animation work.
Joey Stylez is one of the most successful artists to come out of the Canadian Prairies. Originally from Saskatchewan, he’s released numerous full-length projects and has been nominated over 10 times for his work, including a JUNO for Aboriginal Album of the Year. To date he’s won four Indigenous Music Awards (formerly the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards).
He’s also developed a reputation for having a strong work ethic, and overall being an inspiration to other artists and his community at large. The email we received certainly speaks to that:
“If you don’t believe in yourself, then nobody will. We all have a special gift to share with the world, so it’s up to us to find that gift and shine bright! I hope that someday we all feel comfortable in our own skin, doing what feels right to us.”
Check out the new “Super Power” video below and stay tuned for more from Joey Stylez.
