Following months of anticipation, Joji’s second studio album Nectar (released September 25 via 88rising and distributed by 12ToneMusic) has debuted at #1 in Australia, being the first 88rising artist to have a #1 album in Australia. The record continued to make waves across the world, hitting #2 in New Zealand, #4 in Canada, #6 in the United Kingdom and #9 in Norway. It has also reached #1on Spotify’s inaugural US Weekly Top 50 Albums chart which launched today and opened at #3 on the Billboard 200, nearly doubling the first-week sales of his RIAA gold-certified 2018 debut BALLADS 1. Hailed by Newsweek as “a shapeshifting best-seller”, Nectar is Spotify’s most-streamed new album globally this week.
Nectar arrived after a buzzy months-long buildup, which included Joji’s debut TV performance on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a collaborative track and video with Diplo, a new merch line and even his own signature honey Joji’s Nectar. Following the album release, Joji released two more mind-bending videos and announced The Extravaganza – a first of its kind, one-night-only livestream event, set for October 23. Directed by Joji himself, The Extravaganza will feature first-ever live performances of songs from Nectar and never-before-seen hijinks. One ticket will grant fans access to the October 23 7pm PDT (Americas) premiere as well as two re-showings on October 24 at 7pm WIB (Asia & Australia) and 7pm CEST (Europe & Africa). These will be the only viewings of The Extravaganza.
Nectar by Joji is out now via 88rising Records/12Tone Music,
