Multi-talented Maryland-bred recording artist Joony and his homegrown collective 211 have initiated an exciting partnership with Red Bull Records/Evgle. The creative partnership with Red Bull Records and Grammy-nominated artist Blxst’s Evgle imprint will allow Joony and 211 to expand their reach globally and ignite an unprecedented new era in the career of the 22-year-old musician. Kicking things off, Joony has announced his forthcoming EP, ‘MEMENTO’, with the first single, “Need It” out today. Accompanying the track is a music video directed by Zaiem, shot entirely in black and white with a ‘90s-meets-Y2K space-age aesthetic.
About the collaboration, COO/Co-Founder of Evgle, Karl Fowlkes shared, “At Evgle, we think Joony is a generational artist and songwriter, and he and 211 are building something we truly admire in terms of creativity and business. With additional resources of Evgle and Red Bull Records at their disposal, the sky is the limit. We look forward to helping Joony and 211 reach their heights.”
Red Bull Records SVP & Head of A&R Keny “Tick” Salcido added, “Evgle continues to identify culture-moving artists with the newest addition to our partnership in the signing of Joony. Joony has unlimited potential as he brings a different sound with his melodic delivery and unique sonic choices. He represents a career artist at its core and we’re thrilled to welcome him.”
In addition to the great news, Joony recently announced that he will join multi-platinum rapper Lil Tjay on nine dates overseas. The “IDC” emcee will support Lil Tjay in major markets, including London, Frankfurt, Manchester, Vienna, and more.
