JoJo is back with the best album of her career, and she made it on her own terms. Good To Know is a throwback not only to the raw emotion of her mixtapes, but also to a time when R&B was more about setting a mood and telling a story than squeezing a couple of singles between studio offcuts. Over the course of 9 songs on the standard edition (there are 11 on the physical release), the 29-year-old takes us on a brutally honest journey about making mistakes, recognizing bad habits and working on being a better version of yourself.

I recently called up the enduring hitmaker to get a break down of the three, distinct acts of Good To Know and to find out more about her personal journey. JoJo opened up about the breakup that inspired much of the album and explained how the project came together. She also spoke about harmonizing with Mariah Carey earlier this year, promoting an album during the COVID-19 crisis and her plans to release music with more regularity. Catch up with the much-loved vocalist in our Q&A below.

How do you feel now that the album is out there in the world?

It feels like taking an exhale. It feels like I was waiting to exhale and now I can breathe a little bit because when I’m obsessing over something, I can fall into an unhealthy, perfectionist mindset.It cleared space for me. Music isn’t meant to be hoarded or obsessed over by the artists. It’s meant to be shared, in my opinion, so I’m so happy that it’s out. It feels really validating to have people be like, “Oh my God, I relate to this so much.” It makes me feel not alone and it makes me feel understood. I get a lot from it and I’m very thankful.
