Starting out on Youtube
I discovered this little gem when she was still only on Youtube. I remember one song in particular, Poison. It was stuck in my head weeks after the one time I heard it.
Then Crookes’ first produced song came out, New Manhattan. The love song, which is named after an area in Brussels, is hauntingly hypnotizing and noir-drenched. The soulful R&B with electronic influences could be a Bond soundtrack.
Her second single, Sinatra, comes with an astonishing music video, made by her boyfriend. Joy’s beauty is undeniable. Her almond-shaped eyes, her glowing skin, her edgy yet classy style… It’s hard not to be jealous.
