RISING NEWCOMERS JORDAN WARD & JOONY SAY “IDC” IN NEW SINGLE
Jordan Ward To Perform At Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles Next Week
Buzzy R&B tastemakers Jordan Ward (ARTium Recordings/Interscope Records) & Joony leap into their next era with today’s release of the smooth new single, “IDC”. The two collab on the floating, lo-fi melodic track as they trade carefree verses about letting their ex’s exit their lives. Lo-fi also colors the song’s official music video, in which the pair comically run into their exes but get the last laugh as they run through New York City.

“IDC” builds on the momentum that Jordan scored with last year’s Remain Calm EP and the millions of streams it produced. The five-track collection put the St. Louis native’s versatility on full display, swapping from rap bars on “Steph” to the R&B gem “Couscous.” Storied publications took notice, with Billboard highlighting the latter track as “a deliciously layered deep cut,” while HotNewHipHop praised the EP overall as a “short but very sweet” effort. Soon after the EP’s release, Jordan gifted fans his Lil Baby Doc, a six-minute documentary that reveals an intimate look at Jordan’s creative process in the studio while enjoying life with his friends. Watch HERE. Plus, as part of the single’s release celebration, Jordan will perform a showcase at the exclusive Soho Warehouse in Los Angeles on Oct. 10.
As he steps his new era, Jordan Ward continues to draw acclaim as one of R&B’s rising stars. While his 2017 debut EP, A Peak at the Summit, made noise, his clear breakthrough came with his 2019 project, Valley Hopefuls. It was propelled by his single “Okok (Hibachi)” and “Sandiego,” which was produced by singer Arin Ray and music producer heavyweight No ID. Now, with more than 25 million streams and counting, Ward’s silky croons and elevated songwriting pen are sharper than ever and ready to launch him to even greater heights in the R&B realm.
Establishing himself through a series of EPs and full-length albums, Joony amassed a substantial audience before his placement on Brent Faiyaz‘s chart-topping album, Wasteland. Joony’s verse on “FYTB” was a standout moment on the project and marked Joony’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. The poignant record came on the heels of his critically acclaimed album, Pretty In Black. After the release of Pretty In Black (Deluxe), the 22-year-old rapper asserted himself in 2022’s album of the year consideration.
