Joejo has spent part of his career developing a method of performance called ‘calm music.’ In pieces that stretch anywhere from 2 minutes to nearly 5 minutes in length, Joejo held down the sustain pedal, as he freestyles on one word “..I see you” his awakening began there; allowing tones to ring out indefinitely, creating droning ambiance and phantom melodies.
The music is busy and circled under the spell of Nigerian music, the connection between Joejo and Osobeat (the producer) was well established, “Candy Crush” is tuneful and meditative.
As Joejo sings on this 2 minutes freestyle his melodies meld together, shifting in tones and volume. “Candy Crush” draws on repetition and also a certain degree of impromptu inspiration, his music is just as expansive.
He made it more overtly romantic.
“Candy Crush” is another song that proves that Joejo is bound to ascend pop’s hierarchy, a full remix with the chairman medley Ink Edwards is on the way, making this the tip of the iceberg.
