Jocelyn Donald, also known as “Jozzy”, is an American singer-songwriter best known for co-writing “Old Town Road” (remixes 1-3), “Lemonade”, “Mr. Right Now” and “Virgo’s Groove”, among others. In May 2022, Jozzy was announced as the first signee of Diddy’s Love Records label imprint.
P. Diddy knows how to identify market opportunities, and innovation. He’s been pushing emerging artists for 3 decades – his next artist is Jozzy. And she’ll be opening up for our PRIDE event in Atlanta.
Singer/producer Jozzy started out behind the scenes writing songs for much more established artists. After a big break early on when she connected with Timbaland and worked on tracks with the legendary producer, the floodgates opened and Jozzy began writing for and collaborating with everyone from Beyoncé to Chris Brown to Pitbull. In addition to her work co-writing songs with platinum artists, she also worked steadily on her own music. In the summer of 2018, Jozzy issued her debut single, “Push Thru,” a simmering slice of hard-edged pop and R&B atmospheres. She continued releasing tracks one at a time leading up to her 2023 EP Songs for Women, Free Game for Niggas.
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Jozzy came up as a songwriter and producer, inspired by 1990s R&B acts and golden age hip-hop classics. A big break came in the early 2010s when famed producer Timbaland reached out for her to travel to Miami to work on some new songs together. Jozzy jumped at the chance, and within several months she found herself working with a host of new clients and artists, in particular one of her long-held favorites, Missy Elliott. As the years went on, she scored more and more hits for big names, including Chris Brown, Monica, Dreezy, GoldLink, Usher, and even Beyoncé. In 2018, she collaborated with Diplo on a song titled “Live It Up,” which went on to be the official theme song of that year’s FIFA World Cup competition.
