Joey Bada$$ drops off the video for his triumphant record “Devastated.” An uplifting track about overcoming struggle, the visual follows Joey from a high school football game to a block party where everyone’s in a celebratory mood.
The first single off the Brooklyn emcee’s upcoming album, it marks Joey’s transition into exploring a different sound. The Pro Era artist sat down with Rap-Up back in June where he touched on experimenting with his artistry.
“It’s funny because the new song is really different from my previous work. Some fans look at it like ‘Joey’s going mainstream now! What’s he doing?’ Nah. I’m an artist. Each song is a painting for me. People have been used to seeing me paint in the shade of gold or purple. Now, I want to try red and blue. I want to expand my creative and artistic vision, but it’s still the same message. ‘Devastated’ is an inspiring, uplifting song.”
