Joji

專輯介紹


9月25日,Joji發佈了第二張錄音室專輯 -《Nectar》。這張眾星雲集的專輯共收錄了18首單曲,是Joji迄今為止最富有野心的一次企劃。憑藉著先前的四首先發曲目,《Nectar》就已經斬獲了超過7.5億的流媒體資料,其中單曲“Sanctuary”更是獲得了美國唱片協會的金牌單曲認證。《Nectar》的第四首先發曲目“Daylight”,是一首由Diplo製作加持的充滿熱情的夏日熱單。在此之前發佈的,則是Joji 2020年的第一首單曲“Run”,這支作品不僅刷新了Joji在Billboard Hot 100榜單上的最高位置,同時還為Joji獲得了登上Jimmy Fallon “The Tonight Show” 的首次電視曝光機會。而第二支單曲是被Complex稱作“一首擁有著難忘聲線的甜蜜流行金曲”的作品“Gimme Love”。

在《Nectar》的發佈準備階段,各方評論已經意識到了Joji作為一位藝術家從《BALLADS 1》至今所展現的巨大的成長。Joji描述《Nectar》的概念為“充滿平和寧靜的緊迫感”,在這張專輯所佔領的空間之中,各種流派與風格互相融合,緩拍R&B滑入充滿活力的流行音樂,獨立另類的小眾曲風靠向電子樂的領域;在這片空間裡,情緒與感知糾纏探索每個生命天然地被什麼所吸引——到底是愉悅還是生存——而最終他們都會在這裡得到想要的答案。

這張專輯還展現了Joji 廣泛而多樣的合作者們,包括紐西蘭的獨立流行音樂寵兒BENEE, 聞名世界的製作人、DJ音樂人Diplo,亞特蘭大說唱歌手Lil Yachty,墨西哥裔美籍R&B歌手兼創作人Omar Apollo,日本低保真獨立臥室流行新銳rei brown,以及廣受好評的實驗派音樂人Yves Tumor。再加上眾多傑出的音樂製作人們包括Diplo、Bekon & Donuts(曾為Kendrick Lamar製作《DAMN.》,為Rich Brian製作《The Sailor》)、Justin Parker (曾為Lana Del Rey製作“Born To Die”,為 Rihanna製作“Stay”)、Kenny Beats (曾為Ed Sheeran製作“Take Me Back To London”,為 DaBaby製作“Toes”)等,這些眾多藝術家主題與聲音的多樣性最終仍被Joji的抒情與基調所統一。《Nectar》處於Joji既定作品節奏的中間地帶,以其模糊而充滿共情的特質令人難以忘記。

Joji's sophomore studio album, Nectar, arrives September 25. With a star-studded cast of features across the 18-track album, Nectar is Joji’s most ambitious project to date. From the first 4 singles alone, Nectar has already garnered 750M+ streams –with “Sanctuary” earning RIAA Gold certification. “Daylight,” the fourth pre-release track from Nectar, is an anthemic summertime hit featuring crisp Diplo production. It follows the album’s first 2020 single, “Run,” which earned Joji his highest-ever bow on the Billboard Hot 100 and his television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; and second single “Gimme Love” which Complex hailed as "a sticky pop anthem with haunting vocals.”

In the build-up to the release of Nectar, critics have already recognized Joji’s immense growth as an artist from BALLADS 1 to now. A project Joji describes as having “a sense of urgency but calm”, Nectar occupies space where genres melt into each other, where downtempo R&B slides into invigorated pop, where indie alternative creeps into electronica; where emotions get tangled in an exploration of what every living being is innately drawn to - whether for pleasure or for survival - and the ends they’ll go to reach it.

The album showcases the wide-ranging universe of Joji’s collaborators, including New Zealand-based indie-pop darling BENEE, globetrotting producer-DJ-musician Diplo, Atlanta rapper mainstay Lil Yachty, Mexican-american R&B singer-songwriter Omar Apollo, Japanese lo-fi bedroom pop up-and-comer rei brown, and critically-acclaimed experimentalist Yves Tumor. Featuring standout production from Diplo, Bekon & The Donuts (Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN., Rich Brian’s The Sailor), Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die”, Rihanna’s “Stay”), Kenny Beats (Ed Sheeran’s “Take Me Back To London” and DaBaby’s “Toes”) and more, the album’s thematic and sonic diversity remains unified by Joji’s lyricism and tone. Nectar comes from the in-between place that Joji's work paces, characterized by its evocatively smeared quality.
