Joji we missed you

After being quiet since the summer of last year, Joji has released his first song of the year and it’s a bop. The song “Run” is rumored to be the first single off of his sophomore album. After dropping his debut album in 2018, Joji has only released a couple of songs and mentions nothing of his awaited second album. 

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, “Run” is an anthem for the heartbroken. Joji is known for his emotional songs that feed the soul. The track is about Joji’s feelings for an ex-lover and his need to escape them. The song features his staple melancholy voice over a heavy tune. 

“I’m a fan of the new single. The lyrics are similar to other Joji songs but the production and his sound seem to be evolving. I’m excited to hear more music from him soon,” said Andrea Fregoso, a student at Jordan High.

The song was dropped along with a music video. The video depicts a frantic Joji running from a chaotic celebrity lifestyle inside a limousine. Joji’s music videos are all beautifully themed and creative. The video directed by Aisultan Seitov already has 8.2 million views on Youtube. 

Joji is scheduled to perform at the popular music festival, Coachella, in May. But anything other than that anything else he has going on would come as a lovely surprise.
