Joe Raphael Belts, Serenades, and Raps His Way Through His New Single and Video, “New Money”

“New Money” is the summer’s first black-tie event where the wealthy aren’t invited.

Joe Raphael

Have you heard of Joe Raphael? Since his debut on the streaming scene in 2020 with “The First Song,” this New York City-based singer-songwriter and producer has been turning heads with his unique blend of musical elements. Last year, Joe Raphael dropped the track “Looking for a Sign,” and after a year-long hiatus, he’s back with the outrageously fun and surprisingly profound new single, “New Money,” released on June 7, 2024.

In “New Money,” Joe Raphael draws on the iconography of mob movies and the bravado of hip-hop to deliver a mic-drop-worthy performance. Setting the stage for a soundscape inspired by 90’s alt and pop, his lyrics take center stage, offering a timely spin on the classic hip-hop trope of economics as a metaphor for artistry and musical athleticism. On the surface, “New Money” is a solid addition to the catalog of “fuck you pay me” anthems, but there’s a deeper layer to it.

Lyrically, “New Money” critiques the American class system with a scathing and vicious edge. Joe Raphael reminds us that while political engagement may struggle to address wealth inequality, art does not share these limitations. He doesn’t let political discourse overshadow his performance; instead, he puts the music first, embracing individualism and inhabiting the character of an amateur mobster desperate to prove himself. The result is a performance that is disrespectful, polarizing, and genuinely funny. By the time the chorus hits, nothing else matters. “New Money” is simultaneously the most and least serious song of the summer.

This explosive new single is part of Joe Raphael’s debut album, “Whatever I Feel Like,” set to drop on July 26th. The album promises to be a rollercoaster of emotions and sounds, with tracks like “I’m Alive (2024 Remastered),” “TV Show Theme Song,” and “The Jungle” showcasing his versatility. Each song on the album seems to offer a different slice of his eclectic musical style, ensuring that there’s something for everyone.

As we eagerly await the full release of “Whatever I Feel Like,” be sure to check out the music video for “New Money” on YouTube. The video promises to be as dynamic and engaging as the song itself, capturing the essence of Joe Raphael’s bold artistic vision. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for July 26th – Joe Raphael’s debut album is sure to be one of the standout releases of the year.
