“The closer you get to my heart, the more it hurts.”

“Poison” by Joy Oladokun | It was only a couple of months ago when we first wrote about Joy Oladokun – by now I should know to not reverse the D and the K in her name – and now we have another one from her. This is still from her debut album Carry, which dropped two months ago; this track, however, is a simple beauty. Accompanied only by what I assume is a cello (I suck at this) and piano, and carried through by Joy’s very distinct voice, this song about a relationship that’s run its course will, well, get you. It’s the simplicity of it all, again. That pause that carries a lot. And if you’ve heard the album – it’s a beauty, too, but not of the one-note kind. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
