“Gimme Love” is the latest release by Joji from his upcoming 2020 album. The song tackles a theme of love as suggested in the title.
The song follows “Run” and “Sanctuary” as the third single off of Joji’s new album ‘Nectar’ due to be released in July 2020. The new single possesses an ominous beat which progressively transforms into a balladic beat throughout the song.
The music video for “Gimme Love” shows Joji’s journey towars becoming an astronaut. There is a lot of blood and gore in the first half of the video, even though he is not a student of medicine!

In the only verse of the song, we hear Joji asking several questions, possibly from himself. He seems to be hurt, either from being in the wrong relationship or not being in one at all. He does raise the question “Remember those times I fought to get out?” suggesting that he may have been stuck in the wrong relationship. Or it could also mean that he was trying to mend some affairs within the relationship.
However, the relationship seems to have fallen apart, despite Joji’s efforts. He recalls the feeling to “ashes and fire.” Maybe the reason being his lover doesn’t “feel,” “heal” and is not “real.” This may allude to the robotic nature of some people in the modern world.
