Joel Corry Takes Us on a Tour of His Inspiring Music World

presented by

As Miami Music Week 2022 was about to kick off, Joel Corry stopped by the Nexus Lounge Miami at the Sonarworks pop-up space. He talks about his latest projects, gives a glimpse of his performance at MMW2022, and takes part in our Take 5 series.
Joel Corry is an English DJ, producer, and television personality, born on June 10, 1989. He rose to popularity in 2019 with the release of his single “Sorry,” which featured Hayley May’s vocals (albeit no credit in the original music video) and reached number six on the UK Singles Chart.

Despite the fierce rivalry in the music industry and the up-and-coming artists competing for the top spot, Corry remained firm on his feet. When asked who he compares himself to, he said, “I think the minute you start comparing yourself to other people is the minute where you can go wrong. My competition is myself, and I feel like what you see on social media is not the truth either… I think it’s good just to be in competition with yourself. You know what your potential is, you know how good you can perform and what you can do. As long as you stick to your own standards, then for me, I find peace in that.”
Corry’s singles “Lonely” and “Head & Heart” were released in 2020. The latter, which includes MNEK on vocals, lasted six weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart and was Corry’s first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. UK garage impacted Corry as a kid, and it had a “huge role in his development as a DJ and a producer,” he said.
Joel Corry has been a soothing constant amid the draining gloom of pandemic life: if you turned on the radio anytime for the past years, one of the British pop-house producer’s three big singles was almost certainly playing. He has become a true force of nature in dance music, with five BRIT Award nominations and a certified platinum single under his belt.
On a lighter note, the lockdowns caused a lot of individuals to become bored, and social media apps are one of the many things that helped alleviate this problem. When asked what something society is doing presently that in 20 years will be laughed at, he answered: “It has got to be around social media TikTok, although I love it, I’m sure in 20 years we’ll look back on those. Some of these TikTok artists will be like, what were we doing?”

"What Would You Do," a collaboration with David Guetta and Louisville R&B vocalist Bryson Tiller, is Corry's most recent work. This first single of 2022 prepares him for further chart success.
