R&B Singer-Songwriter Joël Lobban Signs with Universal Music Canada and Def Jam Recordings

Alternative R&B singer/songwriter Joël Lobban (FKA Joël) marks his musical return with the unveil of his new single, “Thinking About You” via label partners Def Jam Recordings stateside and Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

The mellow, yet edgy R&B-infused track “Thinking About You”, was co-produced by Joël’s close collaborator, Colin Munroe (Drake, Kendrick Lamar) and recorded between Toronto and Los Angeles. The song is accompanied by an official video directed by Dragan Andic (The Weeknd, NAV) that immerses viewers in a visceral and unpredictable narrative of heartbreak and depths of human connection.


“Lots of life happened since I last shared music with my fans. I’ve been trying to figure out the words to explain my absence from music, but I figure best to let it speak for itself. I’m excited to share this new chapter with you, I’ve missed y’all heavy!!” says Joël of the new music.“I feel I’m deep in my purpose. I’m deep in my calling.”
