Listen to Enjoy The View HERE.
To celebrate the arrival of the record, he just uncovered the music video for the single “Kingdom” [feat. Tech N9ne]. Watch the music video for “Kingdom” HERE. A distorted guitar crunch sets the tone for the track as Joey’s unpredictable cadence cuts right through the beat. Meanwhile, Tech pulls up with a focused and fiery verse of his own. Uplifted by a bluesy guitar solo, the hook hits hard, “When the kingdom comes, you’d better fall in line and pray to God that he’s been listening. Trying to bring my kingdom down.”
In the accompanying visual, Joey and Tech take over a football field. They rap to the camera in between footage of drills and intense game action.
At its heart, the album transmits an important message for Joey. He states, “We get so caught up in this whole music thing, and it’s hard to see where you’re actually at. For me, Enjoy The View literally means stepping back, chilling, having a good time, and enjoying the view. Three years removed from the Pandemic, we’re getting back to it for real. We’re touring. We’re making music. We’re not taking it for granted. I’m reminding myself I’ve come a long way, and I’m going to stop and smell the roses.”
He paved the way for Enjoy The View with the likes of “Closer Now” [feat. King Iso & K.A.A.N.], “Peanut Butter Jealous” [feat. X-Raided], “Sweet” [feat. Lex Bratcher], and “Buckets.” Beyond piling up hundreds of thousands of streams and views, he also notched plugs from Underground Hip-Hop Blog and more.

Enjoy The View with Joey Cool now!
In 2021, Joey Cool joined forces with Tech N9ne, King Iso, and the legendary Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the biggest independent rap song of that year, “Face Off.” Its success would be downright unprecedented, birthing a TikTok challenge and amassing over 13 billion views! The track has crushed nearly 160 million Spotify streams so far with 71 million views on the blockbuster music video. The track saw him mentioned by everyone from Variety to Entertainment Weekly.
With impenetrable flows, hypnotic hooks, and debonair flair, Joey Cool persists an outlier through and through. From the jump, the Kansas City phenomenon has mined influences as diverse as R&B, big band, rock ‘n’ roll, alternative, and rap. “I’ve got a Frank Sinatra tattoo on my arm, and I’m from the Midwest,” he grins. “I’m a little different.”
Thus far, he has ignited a string of fan favorite projects. Hailed as “a hidden gem,” HipHopDX rated his 2018 self-titled solo debut “4.0-out-of-5.0.” Following Coolie High  and I tried to be normal once , he reached another stratosphere on The Chairman of the Board .
Of the latter, Legends Will Never Die raved, “he sounds a lot more confident on here as he leaves no room for questions regarding his current status,” and Hip Hop Golden Age applauded it as “some of his most confident writing and performances to date.” Underground Hip Hop Blog summed it up best as “Joey Cool’s most confident effort yet.”
In between, he shined on Tech N9ne’s “Face Off” alongside King Iso and the legendary Dwayne Johnson. The song has amassed hundreds of millions of streams, 14.6 billion TikTok views, and received plugs from Variety, USA Today, People, HYPEBEAST, and many more. In its wake, Joey hit the road with Tech, ¡MAYDAY!, and Iso. Now, he goes even harder with a dynamic, diverse, and definitive opus in the form of his sixth full-length album, the aptly titled Enjoy The View [Strange Music].
