Joans has worked with Mendes, Pharrell Williams and Billie Ellish, just to name a few, and she’s been a singer on film soundtracks, such as Trolls 2. Now she is stepping out with her new single, “Perfect.” The track is a mid-tempo love song that finds Joans expressing how the object of her desire checks of all the boxes.

“Perfect,” fits squarely within the contemporary R&B framework with its percussive trap music 808 drums and Joans sharing vocal space with a hip-hop artist. Joans moves freely within the room that the sparse arrangement allows, traveling easily between the staccato flow that falls within that grey area between rap and sung vocals but also showing the range that won her so many fans during her run on The Voice. Check out “Perfect” here.
