Fresh from his recent shows in Europe, Joey B strikes back with two new songs. First off is 911, a trap banger featuring Medikal, produced by Joey’s regular producer and collaborator Kuvie. This song does exactly what it set out to do: let Ghana know that Joey’s back and hungry for more.
And now to the second single, the hilarious 1990s flaskback Greetings from Abroad, which comes with the equally funny video shot on proper burger location in Germany. A burger – pronounced boga – is a Ghanaian returnee, the word comes from Hamburger, because Hamburg saw a big wave of immigration from Ghana in the 1980s. It’s the same word used in burger highlife, the 1990s, synth heavy evolution of Ghanaian highlife. Altra Nova laces Greetings from Abroad with references to 1990s R&B and new jack, the hard hitting snare, the latin inspired keys, creating a perfect backdrop for Joey B’s tale of long distance love. Aided by his regular partner in crime Pappy Kojo, proper Italian burger himself, these two can only leave you smiling.
