Joji channels his inner ’80s glam rock star in “Wanted U”

Taking fashion cues from Paul Stanley and Bowie.

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:
