Otro gran debut, la joven californiana de 28 años lanzó en marzo de este 2021 Overgrown su primer disco como cantante. Un disco que bebe de los géneros que predominaron en las décadas de los 90's y 00's, en su mayoría ritmos provenientes del soul, los cuales convergen con un buen uso de R&B, con una fuerte base de rap, la cual funge como esqueleto de todo el álbum.

This overlooked album has something to say. 'Overgrown' by Joyce Wrice is a R&B safety net, filled with probably the easiest to listen tracks I've heard so far this year.

Overall, I am really impressed with Wrice’s debut album. The vocals across were predictably fantastic, and the production selections lended a sense of nostalgia with a modern feel. Wrice’s range from the more vintage sounds of older R&B to the more contemporary sounds and twists really make the album strong from front to back.
There is some serious R&B nostalgia in this album, and I dig that a lot.

Joyce Wrice's debut shows that the R&B genre is only entering the next stage, this tape has some great features and some dreamy, neo-soul production that really compliments her voice. Excited to see what comes of the future for her.
