“Doors Up” is an introspective track about celebrating ones accomplishments. Joell explains, “I really made it out of some of the humblest beginnings you can think of. Because of that, I’ve always had a problem with talking about accomplishments and wins and quite frankly, money. My friends/fam always tell me to celebrate more and talk about the life I live now. “Doors Up” started out as a song I wrote for them, but after recording it, I actually enjoyed hearing me talk that talk.” Showing irrefutable chemistry, L’Orange’s serene production bodes well with Joell’s expert lyricism. “Doors up is a slow burn, something to drive slow to, something to get your head right. Joell is a monster and it’s an incredible opportunity for me to work with a legend and show my range as a producer and musician,” states L’Orange.
