Joel Corry x MNEK: “Head and Heart”

April 11, 2021 | Writer: Eric Reyes

Breakout Hit. The first thought that came to my mind when I saw this power collab from rising star Joel Corry and my personal favorite/celebrity crush MNEK.

I’m not just saying that for the purpose of this article; I fell in love with his work when ‘Don’t Call This Love’ first graced my ears back in 2014. Since then, MNEK has blazed his own trail of songwriting and performing the world over, with artists at the cusp of fame and others who define superstardom. Joel Corry, an entrepreneur and DJ who has put his heart into every endeavor, found a kindred soul through music, and this track is proof.

The beat is so alive, something to move you. The crisp mix works exceptionally well with the brilliant vocals of MNEK, keeping a lively pace lyrically. The performance here takes center stage, driven by the style and influence of Joel Corry’s expert musical direction. The dueling flow of both the mix and the vocals compete for your attention, pulling you one way and then another, never down, never breaking stride, building and building. There’s a lightness to the mix that is its own electronic ballet, entwined with the inspired, well-textured layers of MNEK’s performance.

Catchy, electric, with amazing vocals, what’s not to love? I’ll tell you, absolutely nothing. Seriously. Listen to it, now.
