Joji

Nectar

INFORMATION

Nectar is Joji’s second studio album, following his debut record BALLADS 1, released in October 2018.

After initially announcing a July 2020 release date, Joji postponed the album to September 25, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests.


The album boasts a variety of featured singers, rappers, and producers, including Diplo, Omar Apollo, Lil Yachty, rei brown, BENEE, and Yves Tumor.

The first single from the record, “Sanctuary,” was released on June 14, 2019. The record’s second single, “Run,” released on February 7, 2020. The third single, “Gimme Love,” was released on April 16, 2020, along with the announcement of the title of the album and that it was originally intended to be released on July 10, 2020. The fourth single, a collaboration with Diplo called “Daylight,” was released on August 6, 2020.

The album takes a sonically different approach from BALLADS 1, with a sound that’s less focused on Joji’s typical melancholy, lo-fi sound. Instead, the album takes a mix of many retroelements and lo-fi instrumentation from old Joji projects.
