Making the announcement on his 32nd birthday, Joyner Lucas is prepared to release a new project titled “Evolution” along with exclusive merch.
Lucas via his IG account revealed the cover and titled for his latest EP. Captioning the cover with, “Today I turn 32. “EVOLUTION” the EP dropping 9/18/2020. See you soon (merch link in bio).” Interesting side note, the cover post is the only one on Lucas IG account, perhaps emphasizing the importance of his latest EP.
This year’s ups and downs has also had some positive moments. For Lucas he released his much anticipated debut album with ADHD. The journey wasn’t easy, but it was well wort it for the talented lyricists, who early this year had a strong message to those who are looking to achieve their dreams. “To all the indie artist that are constantly pushing through the struggle to one day make it, just know it’s possible,” Lucas wrote in a caption on IG back in April of 2020.
Another highlight for Lucas was his “Will” tribute song to his idol Will Smith, which was also featured on ADHD. The song quickly grabbed the attention of Smith who showed his appreciation via a video uploaded on his IG. “This video is ridiculous. Brother, again I’m humble, and hope to meet you one day,” Will Smith said as he closed out the video post.
Due to COVID-19, the two artist were unable to meet face-to-face, but were able to chop it up via Snap chat video call. (Watch the call here.) Smith would also jump back into the booth, and drop a verse for the “Will Remix“. A dream come true for Joyner Lucas.
No word yet on the track list for the new EP and whether or not Will Smith is featured on the project.
