I was nervous people won't accept my 'Alcohol' song - Joeboy

Nigerian singer, Joseph Akinfenwa-Donus, aka Joeboy, has said that before the release of his latest hit single 'Alcohol,' he was a bit nervous because he wasn't sure people would accept it.

Joeboy, in an interview with an online platform, Genius, disclosed that he is still in awe at how far his song 'Alcohol' trended as its totally different from his normal sound.

"I was a bit nervous before the song was released because I was not sure if people were going to accept it.

"It is totally different from what I normally do. The reception has been amazing so far.

"It is my biggest charting song since the beginning of my career.

Talking about how he explored a different sound in his latest single, Joeboy said; "It is really special for me, seeing how big the song is becoming and how big it is going to get.

"It was a different step (direction) in my sound. It’s not like the regular Joeboy sound that people are used to.

"I am more or less known as a lover boy. I am not saying it’s a bad thing but I wanted to explore different sounds.

"Alcohol is the first step in evolving my sound.

He also pointed out that releasing Alcohol was in no way a means to encourage alcoholism.

"Being tipsy inspired ‘Alcohol’. There are different challenges in life; it never ends.

"There is always something one needs to fix or solve. I am not encouraging alcoholism in any way but I understand that people need breaks but trying to run away from one’s problems won’t fix them at the end of the day, " Joeboy said.
