Joji’s new album “BALLADS 1″ has debuted at #3 on this week’s Billboard 200 albums and #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart with over 57,000 units earned. This makes Joji the first Asian-born artist to top Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Upon release, the album immediately hit #1 on the iTunes R&B charts and has quickly amassed over 250 million global streams since it dropped on October 26 (2018).
Regarding his chart placements, Joji had the following to say, “I was eating a thin slice of cheese when I received this news. I smiled and swallowed the cheese. A big thank you to the fans who constantly support. Take care of the environment.”
With this album, his combination of trap, lo-fi, hip hop and R&B has been ‘pop refined’ apparently. Although he does work with Clams Casino for the single ‘Can’t Get Over You’.
