As she readies fans for the release of her forthcoming U.S debut album, singer-songwriter Joy Denalane teases with another taste of what’s to come. Her single “Top Of My Love” serves a much-needed, melodic reminder to put self-care and preservation above all else. Over the soothing and nostalgic track, the German beauty sings of her journey to self-acceptance declaring, “I walked a lonely lonely road / Through the whispers I held on to my own / Through the days and the night / Never let it out my sight / I climbed to the top of my love.”
This latest offering follows her soulful duet with Motown labelmate BJ The Chicago Kid "I Believe" and marks the third single from her upcoming album Let Yourself Be Loved. The accompanying live session video, recorded at the Metropol Berlin, shows Joy doing what she does best. Everything about the visual gives throwback vibes, from her vintage-inspired ensembles to the warm and hazy lighting. The classic capture is everything we expect from the “German Queen of Soul,” and we are excited for more.
Joy Denalane's Let Yourself Be Loved is available now for pre-order before its September 4th release date, and it is described as “equal parts an act of self-assertion, genealogical research and homage to the great classics of the genre.”
