From YouTube Popularity to Worldwide Stardom
Joji, whose birth name is George Kusunoki Miller, stands as a true master in blending his distinct musical style.
He fuses trip-hop and lo-fi at the core, enriched by traces of electronic, folk, R&B, and trap, amassing him a substantial global fanbase.
The name “Joji” comes from the Japanese pronunciation of George. He has also used the stage names Filthy Frank and Pink Guy. However, what separates Joji from his other pseudonyms is that Joji isn’t a character.
Joji told Billboard, “I guess that’s the difference. Joji’s just me.”
At 18, Joji made a significant leap from Japan to the United States. Shortly after, he unveiled The Filthy Frank Show on YouTube, showcasing not only his exceptional talent but also his brand of humor, earning widespread acclaim.
In 2017, he shifted to a full-time music career, adopting his current moniker under the esteemed 88rising label.
2017 marked the inception of his musical journey with the release of his debut EP “In Tongues”.
Riding on that wave of success, subsequent to his debut EP, Joji released his first album, Ballads 1, in 2018. Ballads 1 further confirmed the artist’s musical genius, earning him the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 and gold certification in 2020.
He collaborates with other Asian acts as well. Work done with 88rising labelmates Rich Brian and Higher Brothers on songs such as “Midsummer Madness” and “Introvert” serve as a few worthy mentions among the list of collaborations he has been involved in.
His artistic progression continued with the unveiling of his sophomore album, ‘Nectar,’ in 2020.
Like Ballads 1, Nectar was certified gold, thanks to the top-tier quality of the 18-track production, in which Joji also played an instrumental role.
His latest track “Glimpse of Us,” from the album Smithereens secured its position as his top-ranking entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song is a sentimental reflection on a past romance and the tight grip it has that poses a threat to the love of the present.
