Joey Bada$$ returns to share a trio of new singles as part of The Light Pack compilation, including ‘Shine’.
The Light Pack also includes new tracks ‘No Explanation’ and ‘The Light’, and details Joey’s self-imposed time away from music.
As he releases his first new music in three years, Joey returns reborn with new vigour and picks up right where he left off as one of the most promising rappers the game has seen in years.
Listen to ‘Shine’ by Joey Bada$$ on the Shoot Music New Releases playlist on Spotify.
‘The Light’ also arrives with an accompanying video co-directed by Kerby Jean-Raymond and Levi Turner that blends striking documentation of Joey attending a traditional Haitian Voodoo ceremony that took place in Brooklyn before he hits the borough’s streets in an act of protest.
Joey participated in the ceremony in part because of ‘The Light’ co-director Kerby Jean-Raymond, whose Haitian heritage and late aunt being a healer inspired Joey to learn more about Haitian religious rituals.
The footage used in the video is his first time meeting those involved in the ceremony, a raw documentation of the true rebirth he experienced that lead him to a deeper connection with his ancestors. Those themes are present across this new trilogy of singles that explore enlightenment of mind, body and soul.
