OK, so in my quest to bring ya’ll something different or new, I bring you Joy Denalane. Joy is German, but her last album was recorded here in the States. She brings along Lupe Fiasco for this joint called “Change,” which samples an old Curtis Mayfield song “Man Oh Man (I Want To Go Back).” Young Jeezy also sampled this song for his joint “Go Crazy.”

I love Lupe’s verse on this, and I heard this one day around my office. I called my German connect and got a copy of the album, and it’s actually a really solid work. Very social, yet uptempo and funky. Joy has a great voice. Also check out “Heaven or Hell” by her, it’s great.

This is old, I believe it came out in like April or something abroad, but I figured not very many people here had heard about her and I wanted to share! You can check out her official site here.

Let me know your thoughts!

I love Joy Denalane!!!! I found a few of her songs on IMEEM then I looked her up on You Tube. You should also check out her song “Heaven or Hell” feat. Raekwon (I think I spelled that right). She also has a song called “Let Go”. She is a great artist I love her voice , her cd came out a while ago but I don’t think it was every released in the states.

Sister Toldja what is a YT female Soul Singer? I have Joy’s album it’s really great, I originally got this as a free download on itunes and decided to purchase the album. I’ve had it about a year, she does not disappoint she has a range of songs dealing with love and social issues. She also has an album in an African language as she is white and african. Give her a chance you love her!

Lupe is dope as hell. I can’t wait for his new album to be released.

This is alright. She has a nice voice but there was nothing that really stood out to me about the song. The beat was nice but when isn’t it if your sampling Curtis Mayfield.

But this was cool, good music.

Once again AHM has put me on something new! I really liked this song. Joy’s voice is really soulful and Lupe put in down on the track. I will be downloading this.
