A career milestone for Joji, ‘Glimpse of Us’ was also the #1 song on the Spotify Global Chart last week, in addition to being the #1 song on the Spotify AU & U.S. Charts. The song also topped the Spotify local charts in 12 other countries, including Indonesia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Singapore. ‘Glimpse of Us‘ also received a triple j spot addition alongside playlisting support across Australian radio and TV, including iHeartRadio‘s Countdown New Music, LiSTNR‘s Heart Breakers, RAGE and MTV.
‘Glimpse of Us’ is the first song to hit the top 10 in the US from Joji’s acclaimed label, 88rising, in addition to the music collective’s first #1 on the Spotify Global, U.S. & AU Charts. 88rising was founded by Sean Miyashiro in 2015, and began releasing music by Joji in 2017 under the leadership of Head of Artist Development Ollie Zhang and General Manager Anders Borge. Joji’s most recent album Nectar, released in September 2020, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, and #3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Anchored by one of the most commanding choruses Joji has ever written and sung, ‘Glimpse of Us’ is at once new but familiar, showcasing Joji’s incredible vocal range and melancholic delivery. A music video for the track, directed by Dan Streit (Brockhampton, Charli XCX, Diplo), offers a sharp contrast to the elegiac ballad with a docu-style edit that has to be seen to be believed.
The Japanese-Australian singer and producer Joji is one of the world’s most enthralling artists with over 12 billion streams to date. Joji’s sophomore album, Nectar, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, #1 on Spotify’s inaugural US Weekly Top 50 Albums chart, #1 on Billboard’s Independent albums chart, and #3 on the Billboard 200. In addition to this, Nectar debuted in the top 10 in New Zealand, Canada, UK, and Norway.
The good news for Joji continues, with his full U.S. tour selling out within minutes when it went on sale this week, selling over 90,000 tickets throughout the country. Joji will also be making appearances at a number of festivals this year, including Day N Vegas, III Points, HARD Summer, and Head In The Clouds Festival by 88rising.
