Ryan McDermott, the G.O.O.D. Music-signed singer/beatsmith who introduced himself to our pages with November’s reader-approved Paradise, is back to feed his hungry fanbase with freshly-released promo single Joy. As before, the artist handles both vocal and production duties, lacing his own expansive, 12/8 beat with verses dedicated to the woman he’s been looking for all his life. Fresh off stepping into the Booth with club-ready single T.U., Interscope rapper/producer Hit-Boy lends his flow to the record’s final verse. Joy isn’t part of a larger project, but those feeling it can keep it locked for the latest on Ryan McDermott’s Ryan vs. The Sandman: The Tale of the Sleepwalkers LP, scheduled for release later this year.
