London, UK

No one’s doing it quite like Joel Corry. A hit machine with over 4 billion streams to his name who keeps one foot in the underground, he’s scoring UK number one singles while topping the charts on Beatport, earning BRIT Award nominations alongside Ibiza and Las Vegas club residencies. And he does it all under one name: his own. “I want to be that guy who can do it all. I know it’s not normal, but it excites me,” he says. He never stays still: constantly evolving, hitting milestone after milestone in pop and dance music, and always hungry for more.

Having grown up with a UK garage DJ and MC for a brother, he tapped into that first love for his breakthrough Top 10 single ‘Sorry’ in 2019, a cover of UKG duo Monsta Boy which broke the all-time 24-hour Shazam record in the UK. Buoyed by his success, Joel knuckled down in the studio and began crafting a catalogue of future hits, with a star-studded list of collaborators lining up to work with him. Not even the global lockdown could slow him down.

‘Head & Heart’ with MNEK dropped in summer 2020, providing a welcome dose of positivity. It hit the top of the UK singles chart, a first for both artists, and stayed there for
six weeks, becoming the optimistic soundtrack to returning park hangouts and pub gardens. Since then he’s worked with the cream of British pop, including Charli XCX, Becky Hill, RAYE, Tom Grennan and Mabel, as well as international stars like Saweetie, Bryson Tiller and David Guetta. After making his breakthrough with a cover, Joel’s now firmly a part of shaping pop history. He’s an in-demand remixer, too, transforming tracks by the likes of Nina Simone, Ed Sheeran, Megan Thee Stallion and Elton John, who’s become a friend, to his own vision
