Life’s about changing, and nothing ever stays the same. That’s the emotional pressure hissing inside Joy Oladokun’s new song “Changes.” Guitar trembles in the air, percussion tip-toeing along the canopy. “I hate change,” Oladokun fully admits. At least she’s honest. After her “dance with chaos,” she comes to understand her place in the world, circling her own orbit as she contends with self-evolution and the world’s tired state. “I don’t want to stay the same, so I try to keep up with the changes,” she concedes. Time is always in transition, and Oladokun’s erevolution within it is equally as elusive. But she’s working on herself, and that’s worth everything.
