Joji collaborates with Diplo for "Daylight"

08/23/2020 03:16:52 AM

Joji has teamed up with Diplo recently, and this resulted in a new collaboration – a new single called “Daylight.”

This track is the fourth and latest single from Joji off his from his highly anticipated new album Nectar, which will be out on 25 September 2020 through 88rising and 12Tone Music as its distributor. The song follows Gold-certified single “Sanctuary” and his first 2020 single “Run,” which earned Joji his highest-ever entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and his television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon; and the second single “Gimme Love” which Complex hailed as "a sticky pop anthem with haunting vocals.” Last month, Joji also released a tingly and transformative remix of “Gimme Love” by Channel Tres.

Just in time for the dog days of summer, this midtempo anthem sets Joji’s lulling vocals against Diplo’s crisp production to create a hazy, shapeshifting aural mirage.

The vibrant music video of this song was directed by Munachi Osegbu, who also made the video for Megan Thee Stallion’s “Hot Girl Summer.” The visual tells the story of Joji and Diplo tasting the high life of a boy band: struggling PAs on a 90s music video shoot.

The two daydreamers bumble around the set and ultimately derail the shoot of the young (at heart) pop divas.

On the song, Joji says, “It might be nice for people to hear a song about daylight, especially when we don’t get as much of it as we used to,” and on the collaboration, Diplo says “Joji is one of my favorite artists. I'm lucky he answered my text!”
