In the Deluxe version, Joony explains, “A memento is an object kept as a reminder or souvenir of a person or event. I wanted to take that concept a step further with the Deluxe EP and bring it full circle by expanding on the themes ‘MEMENTO’ dove into.”

The smooth new visual showcases Joony and EVGLE’s head honcho across scenes in LA.

Blxst follows suit with confident bars, acknowledging their recent partnership while asserting his status in the industry.

Blxst remarks, “Honored to have Joony a part of the EVGLE family. Our first collaboration, so itโ€™s special! When I first heard Joonyโ€™s music, I knew he was outta here! His versatility is next level and ‘I KNOW’ and ‘MEMENTO (Deluxe)’ embodies just that.”

The Deluxe edition of ‘MEMENTO’ continues Joony’s journey with transcendent vocals and flawless delivery across seven tracks. Known for his versatility, the extended EP sees Joony experimenting with various styles, including live snippets on ‘MEMENTO,’ stripped-back verses on “SADITTY,” and suave flows on “BEAUTY / L(EYES).”

A familiar face on the big stage, Joony has consistently delivered memorable performances, including standout collaborations with Brent Faiyaz and Jordan Ward. “I KNOW” further cements his position as one of the best new artists of his generation.

His roots in Silver Spring, Maryland, influence his storytelling, as seen in his latest album, ‘#SHITUMSS,’ and his Red Bull Records/Evgle debut project, ‘MEMENTO.’

With co-signs from multi-platinum acts, Joony’s trajectory towards superstardom is evident, and ‘MEMENTO’ further solidifies his place in the industry.
