Ahead of the forthcoming release of his third studio album 2000, Joey Badass returns with his new single “Where I Belong.” The song’s music video was also shared.
Produced by Statik Selektah, the track finds Joey vulnerable, as he raps about trying to keep it together amid a life of fame and success.
“Tryna get my thoughts together/I say a prayer every day, hopin’ it all get better/I talk to God a lot, these verses is like open letters/I know that nothin’ really last forever,” he spits on the closing verse.
“Where I Belong” follows the previously released “The Rev3nge” and “Head High.” Both “Where I Belong” and “Head High” will appear on Joey’s upcoming album. Initially scheduled to drop on June 17, 2000 was pushed back over sample clearing issues. On Friday, Joey announced the album’s release date has been updated to July 22. 2000 will drop via Pro Era/Columbia Records.
Speaking with Vibe during the BET Awards last weekend, the Brooklyn rapper opened up about what fans can expect when listening to his next full-length offering.
“On the new album 2000, what should be expected is that classic Joey sound, you know what I’m saying? That authentic Joey. Everything that you want out of Joey Badass, you’re going to get from this project right here. I’m excited for this,” he said.
