"Spent a lifetime tryna really figure out love, still haven’t wrapped my head around it,” Joël speaks on the EP, “I penned four songs that got me through the lockdown era. Can’t wait to share, but for now, let’s just say I’ve been there too.”
I Still Think About You, co-produced by Joël’s long-time collaborator Colin Monroe (Drake, Kendrick Lamar) and producers Aidan Garrett Rodriguez (Lucky Daye, Remi Wolf), Akeel Henry (John Legend, Giveon), Kemy (Jessie Reyez, Rema), and M-Phazes (Jennifer Lopez, Marc. E Bassy) — features Joël’s signature smooth vocals and mellow rhythm that shine on new tracks, “Crazy” and “Wait For Me” ft. Marzz, ushering in a new era of music from the rising R&B star.
After establishing himself as an artist to watch with the release of his debut album GRUNGE GOSPEL in 2020, Joël garnered praise for his unique blend of experimental R&B and powerful vocal abilities. His musical style beautifully intertwines gospel influences from his upbringing as a pastor’s son with a nostalgic nod to 90’s era-rock, drawing inspiration from bands like Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins. Taking a step back to refine his artistic vision for his next project, Joël released "Thinking About You" in 2023, featured on his latest project I Still Think About You out now.
More to come from Joël in 2024.

ABOUT JOËL LOBBAN:
When Joël burst onto the Canadian music scene in 2019 with his debut EP GRUNGE GOSPEL, he accumulated over 3.5 million streams. The Toronto-born artist was immediately heralded by the likes of Pigeons & Planes as a genre-defying one-to-watch—an unpredictable new artist fusing modern R&B with 90s grunge. Now, Joël is returning with a long-awaited follow-up. The new project, I Still Think About You, uses some of the same key sonic influences that helped make his name, but the four-track EP sees him exploring a moodier, sultrier R&B sound. A deep-dive into the woods of his own heartbreak, it charts his mental and emotional cycle over the process of healing from a breakup. With I Still Think About You, we’re skimming the surface of a deep, as-yet-untapped well from a singular artist at the beginning of a long journey, with the innate gift of communicating universal feelings while writing very personally about his own experiences.
