Best For Me

With Jelly’s vulnerable lyrics, “How can you love someone and learn to let them go?” and Joyner’s poignant bars, “I wanna just tell you I love you in case that you really don’t hear it as much,” the duo encourages struggling individuals to seek help while reminding others around them to offer love, support and compassion. The single will appear on Joyner’s new album, Not Now I’m Busy, which will be released on March 22  PRE-SAVE HERE.

Joyner also unveiled the corresponding music video for “Best For Me,” which you can watch HERE and just premiered on MTV’s Billboard in Times Square in New York City. The self-directed visual depicts Joyner processing the death of a friend who had been struggling with an addiction to drugs. Jelly also makes his appearance in the video, as he delivers dynamic vocals to amplify the heart-wrenching message.
