Listening to new music from JoiStarr was actually a re-introduction for me. About a year or so ago, her mixtape “Broccoli & Noodles” was introduced to me on Twitter. I figured that based on the name of the mixtape it would be quite corny and I wouldn’t like it. I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. JoiStarr had good beats, decent lyrics and the songs were catchy. Fast forward to last week, I was watching “Mary Mary” and Erica’s husband Warryn said JoiStarr was his sister and artist…surprise, surprise! Joi sounds a lot like Mary Mary and has sung background for them as well as Kanye West and others. She’s got quite a few mixtapes and singles under her belt already and her album, Magic, is scheduled to be released this summer. Check her out at joistarr.com.
