Influenced by late-80’s & 90’s R&B artists/groups like Aaliyah, Jodeci, Bell Biv DeVoe, Keith Sweat, New Edition and many others, LA singer Joyce Wricehas been creating nostalgic music for some time now. Those hip to the Dom Kennedy presented OpM Vol. 1 Young Nation cut “Hold U Down (Rain Or Shine)” might recall Joyce’s heavenly vocals on the songs chorus.
For those that aren’t hip to Joyce at all, allow this to be your official introduction. Recently, the West Coast beauty got together with producers Jamma-Dee and A$AP P to flip the 1993 track “Take It Easy” by Somethin’ For The People. Aptly titled “Take It Easy,” Joyce shares more of her smooth, raw, angelic vocals and positive energy.
On top of her new single, Joyce also liberated a vintage track titled “Remedy” that she created in college with her friends Kay Matsuyama and Justin Sandoval, as well as another gem titled “Love Thang” produced by Polyester.
Stream all three cuts below! Look out for more of Jouce as she gets set to releaser her solo EP, Stay Around, later this year.
