Excitement has been building for “Joke” since last month. Various TikTok teasers of the track have already generated nearly 7 million total views and over 768K “likes.” Earlier this week, Just Stef invited her 2.7 million followers to participate in an #OpenVerseChallenge, welcoming artists and fans to duet with her.
However, the song showcases her spirit, soul, and attitude as an artist. Calling out a cheater with no holds barred, piano and guitar puncture the airy orchestration as she laments, “You said forever, well fuck you!” Meanwhile, her voice flutters on the instantly chantable refrain, “I was the punchline and you were the joke.”
February 12th, Just Stef will take the stage on Liam Payne’s #HeresToTheFuture VEEPS livestream for a two-song performance. Audiences have clamored for her appearance. As soon as Liam announced her as a guest, she dominated Twitter Global and US Trending at #1.
Now, she’s gearing up for a massive 2022 with more music and surprises to come.
