Throwing Your Weight Around: “All That Muscle” by JOIE GREY

Every artist dreams of making it big — but when your accolades (and wallet) finally start growing, it’s important not to lose sight of who and what got you there in the first place. This is the story that up-and-coming Alternative Pop and R&B artist JOIE GREY tells in his newest single, “All That Muscle,” which hit streaming services Friday, March 3rd.

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Jonathan Green began his journey as JOIE GREY in 2019 after releasing two independent projects. The artist’s newest track gives him the creative space to rant about an experience many can relate to: being left behind by someone you supported once the blood, sweat, and tears you shed together start to pay off. “I think I found you out / you don’t care nothing ‘bout nobody but yourself / big diamonds on your belt,” he sings. 

“All That Muscle” is a direct and bold reminder that how you choose to throw your weight around matters, no matter who you are or what your life circumstances look like. The track is perfect for those who need to process a confrontation they had, or for those who never had the opportunity to seek closure — and even if the topic doesn’t resonate, stellar production and catchy lyrics make “All That Muscle” a perfect addition to your queue. 

If you enjoyed JOIE GREY’s viral hit “Untitled” and are on the lookout for other fresh R&B finds, you’ll love “All That Muscle.” Enjoy the rest of JOIE GREY’s discography on all your favorite streaming platforms — and discover this and more on the Alchemical Records’ Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
