Aocelyn Claims Her Crown On I Wish I Was A King

The Nunavut pop-rapper shares a preview of her upcoming debut album Lovely.

Aocelyn claims her throne with the new single and video I Wish I Was A King — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The song lands ahead of the 22-year-old Nunavut pop-rap songwriter, vocalist and freestyler’s debut album Lovely, set to arrive Nov 5. A unique artist who has overcome many challenges, including housing insecurity and extensive bullying throughout her life, Jocelyn Arreak — via her nom de rap Aocelyn — hopes to help others avoid the bullying that she experienced.

Having written her first song Live To Love Life in an attempt to deal with the harassment she faced, she says her music focuses on themes of believing in yourself, rooting for outcasts and underdogs, spreading hope and breaking the stigma around mental illness. She released her first video Adventure Awaits in 2019.

I Wish I Was A King — as well as the rest of the Lovely album — was produced by Thor Simonsen and Bardur Haberg. The single artwork was created by Bjorn Ulvedal Simonsen.
