Joyce Wrice has released her debut studio album, Overgrown.
The 28-year-old singer tells coming-of-age stories of love and heartbreak on the 14-track record, which features a nostalgic, 2000s R&B sound. It includes a guest appearance from Freddie Gibbs on the previously released “On One,” as well as assists from Lucky Daye, Westside Gunn, Masego, Kaytranada and more.
“When I was really struggling before I wrote this album, I felt like my garden was being overrun by weeds,” she told Vice. “Through working on this album and using these sessions as therapy, I was able to tend to that garden.”
“With this being my debut album and an introduction, or a reintroduction, of Joyce Wrice to everyone, I had to show that these are the types of collaborations that you’re going to see me do,” she added. “I’m a fan of these artists, too. I wanted them to be a part of the world I’m creating.”
