Diplo and Joji connect on catchy new pop crossover, ‘Daylight’
88rising and Mad Decent come together as Diplo and Joji convene on a brand new single, “Daylight.” The new collaboration finds Diplo providing a smooth production backdrop for Joji’s sultry vocal work, rounding out as an ultra-catchy pop piece that has serious summer airplay potential. Joji already has a solid track record for crossover appeal in dance music, but with a little help from Diplo, the pair seem to have a fledging hit on their hands.
Primed more for poolside playlists than pregames, “Daylight” offers another side to Diplo’s endlessly multi-faceted game, landing amid an array of summer projects for the Higher Ground helmer. Between Thomas Wesley material, his digital Fortnite residency, and even appearing in a virtual fundraiser for Joe Biden, Diplo is keeping his foot on the gas in 2020, coming through with Joji in tow on his latest. Listen to “Daylight” below off Joji’s upcoming sophomore LP, Nectar.
