Joyce Wrice has dropped off her latest project, Motive.

Clocking in at approximately 15 minutes, the five-track EP hears the New Gen artist reunite with frequent collaborator KAYTRANADA for “Iced Tea” and two more tracks, while producers Kaelin Ellis, Osinachi Nwaneri and rising R&B artist Mack Keane also contribute to Motive. Wrice’s signature songwriting and mellow vocals are laid on top of dynamic production work, allowing her to try out new sounds while staying true to herself.

“In between coming off of my debut album and brainstorming ideas for my sophomore album, I was motivated to create an EP that the world could dance to,” Wrice shared in a statement. “This new project is experimental, fun, carefree, and sexy. After ‘Overgrown,’ I was inspired to be free-spirited and to let loose and during this process I was consistently asking myself, ‘what’s your motive?’”

In addition to Motive, Wrice also delivered an accompanying music video for the hit track “Iced Tea,” which is directed by Xavier Tera, inspired by Kill Bill and anime and pays homage to the artist’s Japanese heritage while showing off her dancing and acting chops.
