Janji – „Heart Skips a Beat“ + exclusive Interview

Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

I’m Janji. 27 years old artist, producer and songwriter from Helsinki, Finland.

Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tourdates, new videos?!

My new single ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ was just released on June 19th
Constantly working on new music and I think there will be at least 2-4 releases still to come this year.
The next one hopefully in 2 months.

Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

– I love great melodies, they’re the most important thing to me when writing new songs
– My biggest single “Heroes Tonight” has been streaming over 70 million times on Spotify without any major label’s support
– I’ve never performed live
– My other single ‘Horizon’ ranked at the top 10 of China’s Top 500 Most Popular Songs due to countless dancing videos using the song as BGM on Douyin/Tiktok
– I’ve collaborated several times with the saxophonist Tapani Rinne, who is one of the most respected Nordic instrumentalists and known for his innovative style

What can we expect 2020 from you?

New releases. That’s my goal to get as much music out as I possibly can.
Also some different style of songs, experimenting some new elements/genres that people might have not yet heard from me.

Do you have bad habits? A guily pleasure you cant seem to quit?

As for bad habit, I tend to bite my finger nails sometimes when I’m focusing. That’s definitely a bad habit I want to stop. I don’t know if it’s like a „quilty pleasure“ but I tend to eat candy way too much and way too often. That’s also something I’m trying to stop so I can still keep my teeth when I’m old heh.

Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I’m pretty good at computer games but I don’t think that counts as a „special talent“. I don’t really have any real special talents that I can think of.

Being on stage feels like….!

Actually I have never been on stage. I have been focusing on making music and that’s the main thing I love. Maybe someday I will do live shows but for now I’ve been loving to keep my focus on making music.

Must Have – and No-Go in your Wardrobe! – Favorite Fashion Brand and Fragrance?

I like simple cloths. Just a pair of trousers or jeans with some sweater is usually my go to. And in winter (which is long in Finland) I love my navy blue parka styled jacket.
Polo shirts are a No-Go for me. I don’t think I own a single polo shirt and I don’t really like how they look or feel on.

I don’t have a favorite fashion brand but I’ve really liked clothes from Massimo Dutti and on the high end I think Versace and Louis Vuitton. As for fragrance I’ve recently used Yves Saint Laurent’s L’Homme
