Joy Oladokun appeared on Saturday’s CBS This Morning. The singer-songwriter’s “Saturday Sessions” performance featured three songs from her 2021 album, In Defense Of My Own Happiness.

Raised in Arizona and currently a Nashville resident, Oladokun was backed by a three-piece band on Saturday. Joy put out her major label debut through Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records on June 4. The 14-track LP shares the same name as an album she released independently a year earlier. The 2021 version features just two songs found on the 2020 album. Jensen McRae, Maren Morris and Penny & Sparrow contributed to her 2021 record.

“Writing this album made me realize how strong I am to have survived the things I’ve survived,” Joy explained in a trailer for her 2021 LP. “I wrote an album about the choices I make and the things I love and who I am and why I deserve to be happy.”
