The pandemic opened up opportunities for many people, despite being one of the most challenging times the world has seen recently. The entertainment industry witnessed the birth of many talents, one of which is ElJoee, born Billel Mehsen, who has not rested on his oars since he hit the spotlight and is working round the clock to get his brand to the point where the world recognizes him for his work and talents.
ElJoee is an artist, singer, songwriter, and producer from Algeria but is currently based in France. His career took off the same year that he moved to a new city, and the world was hit by the pandemic shortly after. Having nothing else to do other than sit with his music gear and instruments, ElJoee spent every day creating, composing, remixing, and arranging music and creating content for his Instagram page. He draws inspiration from oriental and modern music and has worked with many artists, record labels, and brands, exploring his range and abilities.
With a music background deeply rooted in diverse cultures, music genres, styles, and instruments, ElJoee attributes the unique touch in his music to where he comes from. Also, he has his sights set on not just music but the entertainment world as a whole, and he has had a feel for music, movies, brand commercials, short films, and content creation in its entirety.
ElJoee’s goal is to connect with the movers and shakers of the music industry and get them to give him a platform to showcase his talent. The zeal he had during the pandemic never died, and he’s now more than committed to achieving success in the music world. After his stint with the Algerian band, BARA3IM THUGS, where he enjoyed the spotlight with their viral song, ElJoee has stuck to music and has nothing else as his goal than achieving immense success in his career. ElJoee has collaborated with Moroccan singer, Chaama, with whom he released the hit song “Lala Mama” and recently also released “Hiya Hiya That,” which has made it to fourteen Spotify playlists.
ElJoee believes in letting his music speak for itself, so he’s working hard to get his name out there to make people check out his music and brand. He has a laser-type focus on success, and in the next few years, he hopes to break into the international scene and give Algerian music more exposure.
“We have come a long way with no plans to stop. And as I continue to put in the work, I believe that the right people will listen very soon, and the massive success I’ve always dreamed of will begin to take shape,” ElJoee said.
