Joeboy – Wetin Be Love ft. Ckay
‘Wetin Be Love’ is the eighth track housed under Joeboy’s ‘Body & Soul’ body of work and it features Nigerian singer and producer Ckay.
There aren’t many hitmakers like Joeboy in the world. The artist Joseph Akinwale has dug the depths and complexities of passion and love for his Afropop bops ever since catching the attention of the Nigerian mainstream with 2019’s “Baby.”
Joeboy’s sensitive yet astute probe of love was expanded upon on his 2021 debut album, Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic.
His mesmerizing vocals and semi-autobiographical reflections on fame, affection, and self-perception cemented his place as one of his generation’s leading lights.
Between Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic and his highly anticipated sophomore album, 2023’s Body & Soul, the artist has grown and refined his music into a more full view on his experiences with attraction and relationship. “Body & Soul is my state of mind,” he says in an interview with Apple Music.
Body & Soul is, in many respects, a combination of his loving world view as well as the pressures and joys of operating at the pinnacle of Afropop. “The idea for this album is just that you can actually be yourself and you don’t have to be perfect,” he says. “All you have to do is be yourself and work hard to be a better version of yourself.”
