LISTEN : JOJI’S NEW ALBUM NECTAR RELEASED TODAY ON 88RISING

September 25 – Today, Joji releases his highly anticipated second studio album, Nectar via 88rising and distributed by 12Tone Music.
Nectar arrives as an eagerly anticipated follow-up to Joji’s RIAA Gold-certified first full-length album BALLADS 1, which topped the Billboard R&B / Hip-Hop Charts and has amassed 3.6B+ streams to date. The “first music superstar of his kind” (Office), Joji is back with a cinematic and contemplative follow-up that he describes as having “a sense of urgency but calm.” Across its expansive universe of visuals and music, Nectar explores what every living being is innately drawn to and the ends they’ll go to reach it. The album lives in the in-between space where genres melt into each other — where downtempo R&B slides into invigorated pop, and alternative creeps into electronic. Executive produced and arranged by Joji, Nectar is his most ambitious project to date and an album that “far exceeds anything else we’ve heard thus far” (NYLON).
Nectar’s four pre-release tracks have garnered over 850 million streams collectively to date, with #gimmelove gaining over 4.6 billion views on TikTok, and Joji earning his highest-ever debut on the Billboard Hot 100 for “Run” and making his national television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Known for his highly selective collaborations, Joji created Nectar’s eighteen tracks with assists from a remarkable list of acknowledged icons and new trailblazers: Diplo, Lil Yachty, Yves Tumor, Omar Apollo, rei brown, and BENEE.
To celebrate Nectar’s release, Joji recently debuted a new line of merchandise, which includes specially-printed t-shirts and hoodies as well as a limited edition pot of honey made in collaboration with Eli’s Bee Company. Official merchandise and honey is only available on jojimusic.com.

Joji is one of the most enthralling artists of the digital age and among the world’s top independent artists with over 5 billion streams to date. The Japan-born singer, producer, and auteur has a total vision for his work, not just in the writing and producing of his music, but across artwork, videos, and live performances as well. It’s a fully realized world that his fans can inhabit and explore—and see themselves in. “My music is not biographical,” he says, but even still, the deep, heavily shaded emotions in his songs are genuine and they speak to anyone who has ever felt stuck on the outside looking in, who knows what it means to not belong. In 2019, Joji sold-out his North America tour within minutes and performed at some of the most coveted festivals across the world, including Reading & Leeds in the UK and Lollapalooza.
