The Joy Perform with Doja Cat During Coachella Headline Set

South African vocal group The Joy performed at Coachella last night (Sunday) joining Doja Cat to open her headline performance after they were hand-selected by her as a guest. The Joy provided lead vocals alongside the American rapper on two of her tracks; recent single, “Acknowledge Me” and “Shutcho” which was reimagined to incorporate lyrics in Zulu – you can watch footage of the performance HERE <ins link>.

This monumental moment for the five-piece arrives on the heels of their recent single, “You Complete Me” and news of their self-titled debut album which is out via Transgressive Records on June 21. Recorded live, in real time, at the renowned Church Studios in Crouch End, London and featuring no instruments or overdubs, the 11-track album is a thing of transcendental beauty thanks to the astonishing vocal talent of the group members – Pastor (Ntokozo Bright Magcaba), Duzie (Melokuhle Mkhungo), Guduza (Sphelele Hlophe), Sthombe (Phelelani Sithole) and Marcus (Sanele Ngcobo) – who have been together since meeting at school.

The video for “You Complete Me” was filmed by Up The Game (the creative team behind Liam Gallagher: Knebworth 22 and Tonight with: Arlo Parks) at the live recording of the album. Listen to  “You Complete Me” HERE
