Joey showcases a new side of his artistry on “Fallin’.” The track opens with a head-nodding bass line complemented by silk-smooth drums before Joey flexes his vocal range with echoing melodies. He opens up about the struggles of love, confessing on the chorus “Fallin’ for you, I’m all in for you.” The accompanying visual centers around Joeyas he slowly “falls” into his bed.

It has also picked up critical plugs from COMPLEX, HipHopDX, UPROXX, and more, while VIBE praised, “The short is a perfect compliment to the rapper’s latest drop, as the subdued ambiance mirrors that of production and Joey’s contemplative lyrics.”

In addition, Joey delivered a show-stopping performance of “Show Me” on NBC’s The Tonight Show, Starring Jimmy Fallon. Boasting a stacked guest list with JID, Larry June, Diddy, Capella Gray, and Westside Gunn, it also incited the applause of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, who observed, “You’ve heard Joey rap like this before, but the scope is plusher, a Bad Boy veneer slathered over corner-bred rhyme schemes.”
