Joji has dropped a video for “Can’t Get Over You,” another track from his forthcoming album, BALLADS 1.
It’s a two-minute ditty where Joji inhabits a character so obsessively lovesick, it’s a little disturbing. “Tell me more, I got a box cutter with your name on it,” he raps. “I don’t have no social cues, I’m all for you.” The prancing production by Clams Casino, Thundercat and Roget cuts the creepiness somewhat, though.
Joji continues to flesh out this socially inept persona in the video, where he clumsily rollerblades, flowers in hand, towards his lady love, but soon realizes he doesn’t stand a chance of winning her heart. It’s all a little odd, but definitely entertaining.
The 88rising artist has also confirmed that BALLADS 1, which also features “Slow Dancing in the Dark,” will drop October 26. In the meantime, check out the video for “Can’t Get Over You” below:
