After leaving music critics in a frenzy with his “BALLADS 1” album, the narrative for Joji had forever changed. His gloomy and intoxicating sound delivered so much more than people had expected and it earned him the respect he truly deserved as an artist. As he now turns to a new chapter in his career, the musician has since shared his talents on a couple of features here and there as well as putting his efforts toward some integral press cameos and creating YouTube videos with his fellow 88rising alumnus.
While many wait for what the future of Joji may look or even sound like, this summer has definitely been one to remember for the singer/songwriter. Unraveling his late-night bedroom anthem known as “Sanctuary,” the single kept everyone afloat. Now, everyone’s favorite heartthrob is back. Sharing the latest single off the “Head In The Clouds II” album, “Breathe” arrives in good faith.
As you can expect an ample amount of collaborations and diversity, this single stays true to the musical mantra created by Joji himself. In collaboration with Don Krez, the two create a vulnerable safe space for the heartbroken. As summer comes to an end, this record provides the ultimate crying in the club rally cry that many would be able to fall in love with. The dancey production adds an addicting groove as you are emotionally wounded by the relatable jabs found in Joji’s lyrics. Listen to the single and be sure to keep out for the Heads In The Clouds II LP due October 11th on 88rising.
