Joji’s last tour, in support of his full-length debut BALLADS 1 (also 88rising) - the RIAA-certified Platinum album that topped the Billboard R&B and Hip-Hop Charts, and has amassed 3.6B+ streams and counting - sold out within 15 minutes, making Nectar: The Finale one of the most anticipated live events of the fall.
Nectar, released on 88rising (distributed by 12Tone Music), debuted at #1 on Spotify’s inaugural US Weekly Top 50 Albums chart, #1 on Billboard’s Independent albums chart and #3 on the Billboard 200, nearly doubling the first-week sales of BALLADS 1. It was the most streamed new album of the week on Spotify globally and has now exceeded 1.6 billion streams in the US alone. Featuring RIAA certified Gold singles, “Sanctuary,” “Run,” and “Gimme Love,” the album also debuted at #1 in Australia and in the top five in New Zealand and Canada.
Joji, the “first music superstar of his kind” (Office), executive produced and arranged the entire 18-track collection that “far exceeds anything else we’ve heard thus far” (Nylon). Nectar has been praised as “a work of art and euphoria” (Ones To Watch) and Joji’s “best to date” (The Needle Drop). With assists from acknowledged icons and new trailblazers alike, including Diplo, Lil Yachty, BENEE, Omar Apollo, and Yves Tumor, Joji’s latest musical masterpiece earned his highest-ever debut on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Run,” and his national television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last year.
