JoJo is back with ‘good to know,’ her first new album since 2016’s ‘Mad Love.’ In her new song “Man,” she makes it clear that if she’s going to leave her beloved singledom, it’s going to be for someone that knows how to love her the way she loves herself. Watch a special performance of the single in the latest edition of Press Play and grab a copy of ‘good to know’ out now.

JoJo burst onto the scene at only 14 years old with her 2004 debut single “Leave (Get Out)”, an incredible, soulful jam that is already stuck in your head just from reading the title. After releasing two albums as a teen, a dispute with her label led to those tracks being held away for years from any and every online streaming or purchase outlet. After settling the dispute in 2014, she re-recorded the albums and started putting out new music, conveying a newfound strength and ownership of her voice. And that’s not even mentioning her acting career, starring in films such as RV and Aquamarine.

Today that evolution continues, with her new album, good to know. JoJo breaks her story into three clear chapters, detailing excess, self-realization, and growth in soulful R&B-tinged tunes. In this chat, JoJo discusses sharing her life’s trials and joys, what she learned from the late Robin Williams, her Quarantine Island Discs, dreaming of Joni Mitchell, and so much more.

  1. JoJo sent Demi Lovato a song and is awaiting her to send back a verse.
  2. Don’t Talk Me Down was the hardest song to record.
  3. JoJo is excited to perform ‘Think About You’ the most because she’ll be playing it on piano.
  4. There will be an extended version of ‘good to know.’
  5. Bad Habits, Proud and the solo version of ‘Comeback’ will be available on streaming platforms soon!
  6. Sam Smith and her have discussed possibly collaborating in the future.

I have finally updated the look of JoJo-Levesque.net (formerly JoJo-Levesque.us). This is one of MANY changes coming for the website, including lyrics.

For Joanna Levesque, who performs as JoJo, the freedom of her new album was over 15 years in the making.

JoJo was just 13 years old when her song “Leave (Get Out)” hit No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts in 2004. At the time, she was the youngest artist ever to hold that spot. “Too Little Too Late,” the lead single for her second album, made it even further to No. 3 on the Hot 100, and in 2008, JoJo promised fans on her Myspace page that her third album would arrive in time for her 18th birthday.

The album never came. In 2013, JoJo sued her label, Blackground Records and Da Family Records, and was released from her contract the following year. In 2018, she re-recorded and re-released her first two albums, JoJo (2004) and The High Road (2006), after they had been previously removed from streaming services. (Taylor Swift, who likewise doesn’t own her masters, has stated she’ll make a similar move in November.)

‘Look at me now” is a fitting opening line for Good to Know, the fourth studio album from R&B singer JoJo. The artist has been on a storied journey through the music industry and the public eye: first emerging as the 13-year-old singer of Leave (Get Out), she then spent years mired in legal disputes with her label that prevented her releasing music. After reigniting her passionate fanbase with a string of independent, darker-sounding mixtapes (and one viral Drake cover), she released Mad Love, her long-delayed third album, in 2016. But Good to Know, released on her own imprint Clover Music, with its themes of independence and self-knowledge, carries with it a sense that she has finally arrived as the kind of artist she was always meant to be.

JoJo breaks down her new album “good to know” with the one and only Zach Snag.

Insider launched the Stay Insider Sessions to connect with musicians while they, like many of us, are grappling with isolation and unprecedented downtime. Next up: JoJo.

JoJo is sitting composedly on the carpeted floor in her Los Angeles home, pondering a concept I think about fairly often — but a concept that, I imagine, is far more complex for someone who has been famous since she was a tween.

How are you different, I asked, from the person your adolescent self thought you’d be in your late 20s?

“I think I’m more spiritual than I ever considered being,” she decides. “And I thought I would have a lot more money.”

“I always dreamed of this moment in time where women are much more in the driver’s seat.”

It’s been four years since JoJo released her comeback album Mad Love, and no, she wasn’t “sleeping” on her fans or using the time to relax by the pool with an Aperol Spritz (although she’d love to be doing that right now, and same).

Since 2016, the superstar has flip-flopped between labels, embarked on several worldwide tours, purchased a new home and ended a relationship after ‘cheating’ on her boyfriend, as well as some other “dumb shit”. Let her live!

She fuelled said “dumb shit” into writing sessions for her strongest body of work so far, Good to Know, a nine-track collection of smooth and intricate R&B numbers about empowerment and self-worth.

“This album is wanting to escape yourself but then not being able to, and then realising how important it is to find comfort in being on your own and finding strength in that,” she tells Gay Times.

When you speak to JoJo, or even just watch her on Instagram, you can feel how much she loves the physical act of singing. Vocal riffs are not just strings of notes; she’s expressing herself to you. She shares her voice with her fans almost every day on Instagram around noon (PST), when she goes live to talk, sing with guests, and unpack her new album, Good to Know.

“I think that energy exchange is important,” she tells Teen Vogue on a phone call weeks into California’s mandated social distancing. She misses in-person experiences, but that’s the reality of album rollout in the age of COVID-19. And she won’t let this new normal bring her down, either. “To feel the music and hear someone sing live is a powerful thing.”
