The 11-track offering features Joony’s (@joonyoftv) signature feeling of melancholy that pairs well with his excellent ear for production. After catching significant steam with his Fast & Furious-inspired single “Drifting In Tokyo,” the 21-year-old creative digs deep in his artistic bag to bring a versatile full-length effort.
Coming off the heels of his tantalizing performance at Broccoli City Festival 2022, the “Say My Name” MC hosted bi-coastal listening parties to build excitement for his new album. The DMV-bred recording act teased some of his upcoming work for jam-packed rooms in LA & NYC.
Pretty In Black feels like summer. Joony was a one-person show for most of the project but picked up some exciting features. Jordan Ward offered some fire vocal help on “ZOOM ZOOM,” while Lily Rayne connected with Baby Joon on “BE OTW,” an Afrobeats infused bop.
The Brent Faiyaz/Lost Kids co-signee has some heavy hitters on the production side. The beat for “MISERY” is from Grammy-nominated producer Charlie Heat and “HIGHS LOWS” features production from multi-platinum super-producer CashMoneyAP.
Joony is positioning himself to become the next big star from the DC Metro area. After gaining massive support from highly respected publications like Billboard, Lyrical Lemonade, and DJ Booth, the writing is on the wall. Pretty In Black is not just a random title. It means something to the budding superstar. He wants people of color to embrace who they are and understand the power within them.
He hopes to continue climbing the ranks and using his platform to create change in the upcoming years. His 11-track album discusses love, growth, and acceptance. Joony’s life changes every day, and Pretty In Black perfectly captures his mindset as he maneuvers through all of the changes.
