Hip Hop artists Joseph Black and Luh Kel share their new emotionally charged single “Homesick” released on Thursday (September 17). The New single showcases Black’s incredible gift for merging heart-on-sleeve storytelling with hard-hitting beats.
The 22-year-old Minnesota native brings melodic flow to a high-impact track detailing his experience in heartbreak and betrayal. St. Louis born artist Luh Kel accompanies “Homesick” with a soul-stirring verse.
“My life took a change for the better which caused me to move away. Now I am homesick for a person, and that’s what I expressed when I made this,” says Joseph Black “It doesn’t matter where I am in the world, you are my home and without you I am homesick.”
Black is looking to put his troubles behind — poverty, high school drop out to the lawless, drug-ridden streets of his city. The Capital Records artist is following up on his break up anthem released on Valentine’s Day titled ‘(I Hop You) Miss Me“, which landed in the top 5 on Spotify’s US Viral 50 chart and garnered over a 3 million TikTok creates.
I moved away, baby (Away), I’m gettin’ homesick (What?)
I can tell you a liar, the way your tone is (No)
I ain’t seen you in a while, I’m gettin’ homesick (No)
I ain’t seen you in a while, I’m gettin’ homesick
I moved away, baby (Yeah), I’m gettin’ homesick (Ayy)
I can tell you a liar the way your tone is (I know)
I can see it in your eyes that you homesick (Yeah)
You can see it in my eyes that I’m homesick – Joseph Black on the hook for Homesick. Lyrics via Genius.
