FIRST THINGS FIRST. GO CHECK OUT JOJI'S NEW MUSIC VIDEO 'SANCTUARY'. IT IS loving INCREDIBLE. Its a fantastic song and the music video is weird Star Trek original series poo poo.

Welcome to my megathread for one of my favourite new emerging artists, who combines R&B and modern samples in a very cool,fresh way. Joji ( real name George Miller) combines fresh samples with his signature voice, creating some moody masterpieces. Joji is also culturally significant as he is the first Asian-born hip hop artist to top the billboard Hip Hop/R&B Top 50 when he released his last album.If you were a Youtube denizen for the past 5 years you might have heard of his first creative measure, his Youtube channel and character "Filthy Frank". I never watched his videos but according to a bunch of 16 year olds he was really, really funny. Even if you didnt watch Filthy Frank, you probably saw one of his memes, the viral video "Harlem Shake" craze was started by Joji.


As part of his Filthy Frank channel, he eventually branched out into a bizarre rap character called "Pink Guy". He ends up releasing a real album for Pink Guy that actually receives a bit of buzz. Check this out. The music video is him in a pink suit running around a park.

In 2018 he released his first real album on his own as Joji,which is more R&B focused than the silly rap on Pink Guy. He left behind his original youtube channel and his silly videos, as he was more focused on artistic music and the previous comedy was giving him worse anxiety. Check out this Vice interview.

He had a few singles with a wide appeal. A few of my favourites from that album.

Test Drive - Almost sounds like an unreleased Post Malone song. Amazing video as always.

Slow Dancing in the Dark - Joji at his most dark and depressed. His most streamed song.

Yeah Right - just amazing. Check the video

And for something completely different, upheat and the ultimate summer jam, this is Joji with his pseudo asian boyband 88 rising.
