Singer-songwriter Joy Bogat is preparing to drop her Album Fabric of Dreams, scheduled for March 2024 but in the interim, she shares the single "Why Should We Lie" which also comes with an exciting visual. The track is a mid-tempo effective cut that deals with the concept of public pretence even when one is dying inside. Joy tackles the topic with the utmost candour as she sings "Trying so hard to stay centered, Bring to stay zen when/ All the world things come Crashing down" and she further asserts herself with the statement "I know sometimes things don’t ever work out, Why should we lie/ And say that we got/ All our shit together" which summed it all up perfectly.
Overall, "Why Should We Lie" is that daily reminder for us to shed the facade and just be true to ourselves because everyone is going through personal challenges no matter how they portray themselves to the world.
The visual for the song is a performance-focused clip that taps into Joy's life as she embraces her femininity and impending motherhood as well. We see her displaying her truth in different forms as she basks in the summer breeze.
