JoJois backâ€”but if you’re a true fan, then you know she never really left.
The 25-year-old singer has released several songs and EPs since her second studio album, 2006’s The High Road, but contractual drama kept her work in limbo. She was making music, yes, but she couldn’t properly distribute it.
â€śI have a bit of anxiety, as you would if you havenâ€™t put out an album in ten years,â€ť JoJo admits to me. â€śI think if I was totally carefree and had no emotion about this, I might be a bit of a sociopath.â€ť
JoJoâ€™s album Mad Love comes out today after a frustrating decade in which the former teen star was prevented from releasing any new music due to problems with her label. Even though sheâ€™s technically been off the grid for ten years, though, sheâ€™s stayed part of the music world, releasing mixtapes and collaborations that have ensured her fans havenâ€™t forgotten her. Todayâ€™s release is a major milestone for her, but itâ€™s not a comeback â€” more like a reintroduction, she says.
Born Joanna Levesque, JoJo signed her first record deal at the age of 12. When she released â€śLeave (Get Out)â€ť at 13, the song made her the youngest solo artist ever to have a number-one single in the United States.
