Joji transforms himself into an ’80s glam rock star in the video for “Wanted U.”
Looking like a lesser-known member of Kiss, the singer sports big curls, a leopard print coat and outrageous makeup. In the video, directed by Michael La Burt, Joji cruises on a highway in a sleek convertible with a blonde sidekick as he daydreams of being on stage.
Scattered throughout the clip are creepy scenes of fictitious deities, burning statues and a schoolgirl who evolves into a Demogorgon. It’s a bizarre visual for a power ballad, but quite fitting considering it is Halloween season.
“Wanted U” is the latest single from Joji’s full-length debut, Ballads 1, which arrived last Friday. Check out the video for it below:
