Joell's summer-ready anthem 'Pretty Pretty' explores instant connections

"Even if you can’t dance I want you to dance to it. It’ll help you find your rhythm in life..."

After dropping his self-described break up anthem 'RUN' last week, rising Edinburgh rapper Joell is switching up the narrative and focusing on the beauty of the honeymoon period with his new offering. 

'Pretty Pretty' captures a moment of awe and instant connection with someone, transporting the rising artist back to that special moment when eyes meet and things feel lighter.

“You ever been at a party or a celebration you been looking forward to for a minute? Maybe you had a long week. You get there, the vibes right. The people are right. The drinks are flowing. It’s just what you need," says Joell. 

“Boom. Something catches your eye. Think back. You ever had a moment with someone and if you think about that person right now you remember that moment," he adds. "Whether it’s a glance, a smile, whatever — that first moment was where they got your full attention."

"Pretty pretty is that moment," the rapper explains. "Effortless sonic. You don’t need to think. It’s chill. It’s vibey. I don’t want you to think when you listen. Even if you can’t dance I want you to dance to it. It’ll help you find your rhythm in life.”
