Anyone checking out up and coming Pop artist Joshua’s latest single “ICON” are sure to quickly envy his levels of self-confidence. And that may be the only positive example Joshua sets throughout the single. But isn’t it nice to hear Pop music which hasn’t been manufactured to appeal to 14-year-olds?
It was a fairly brave move for a breaking artist to declare himself an icon at this stage in his career, but as you watch the official music video unravel the charismatic artist succeeded in convincing you that in actual fact, he already has all the makings of an icon.
His slightly antagonistic yet palpably salacious lyricism definitely puts Joshua with the more expressive Pop artists such as Lady Gaga, but he didn’t have to hang around waiting to win a Grammy before he developed such a magnetic ego. And let’s face it, we all have one.
You can check out the official music video to Joshua’s latest single ICON for yourselves by heading over to YouTube now.
