This week, Joji is back with another drop off the highly anticipated BALLADS 1 album set to be released October 26th via 88rising. "TEST DRIVE," which features the production of famed producer RL Grime, is a ballad that explores the complexity of commitment. Being in a relationship with someone who sees things going a different direction is rough. It can feel as if you are trapped on a ride you didn't sign up for, and the music video captures this sentiment perfectly.
One thing Joji has stuck to is his love of strong visuals. The music video for "TEST DRIVE," directed by James Defina (Post Malone, Rich Brian), is a visually stunning depiction that shows Joji alone in the desert, locked in the proverbial chains of a relationship that could have been.
Joji has perfected the art of multiple mediums. His songs are stripped down, melancholic and soulful, but the with elements of trap that spice it up and keep it current.

After the last two drops of "SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK", which charted to #27 on Spotify’s US Top 50, #2 on YouTube Trending, #2 on Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100, #2 on iTunes R&B as well as racking up 28 million Spotify streams in a little over a month, Joji followed that up a few weeks later with "CAN’T GET OVER YOU," and now "TEST DRIVE."
I have no doubts that the rest of the album is going to garner the praise coming Joji's way. This guy is a force to be reckoned with. If you haven't already taken notice, it's time to.
