Diplo, Lil Yachty, Yves Tumor, Omar Apollo, rei brown & BENEE To Appear On Anticipated Second LP
Debut Album Ballads 1 Now RIAA Gold Certified
Joji has revealed the final tracklist and features for his anticipated new LP Nectar, in advance of its September 25 release on 88rising, distributed by 12Tone Music. 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.
Nectar, the follow-up to Joji’s now RIAA-certified Gold debut BALLADS 1, comes from the in-between space where genres melt into each other - contemporary R&B slides into downtempo pop, nu-metal creeps into electronica - and emotions get tangled.
V Man calls Joji’s most recent single “Daylight” (ft. Diplo) “vibrant.” It followed the Gold-certified track “Sanctuary,” “Gimme Love,” which Complex hailed as "a sticky pop anthem with haunting vocals,” and Joji’s first single of 2020 “Run,” which earned his highest-ever entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Joji also released a tingly and transformative remix of “Gimme Love” by Channel Tres.

Joji is one of the most enthralling artists of the digital age. He has a total vision for his work, not just in the writing and producing of his music, but artwork, videos, merch, 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. As Joji surpasses 4.6 billion global streams, 2020 promises to be his biggest year to date.
