Joi Cardwell

Best known for her vocals on L’il Louie’s 1990 house hit ”Club Lonely,” Joi Cardwell reemerges as a leading dance diva on her second album, the self-titled Joi Cardwell. It’s hard not to get up and move to the propulsive ”Run to You” and the ebullient ”Found Love.” Her R&B-ready voice is equally suited to the slower ”Stop & Think.” Joy is exactly what Joi brings to her infectious dance music.
