ABOUT JOJO

JoJo is resilient. 

That’s the message that comes through loud and clear when you listen to Mad Love., her debut album with Atlantic Records and her first LP in ten years. She’s empowered. She’s in control. And she’s grown as hell. You can hear it in her Wiz Khalifa-assisted lead single, “Fuck Apologies.” It’s a powerful statement of intent that announces to the world that the singer-songwriter isn’t going to let anyone make her feel small.

It comes as no surprise, then, that there’s so much authenticity and vitality in Mad Love.; it’s a document of a young woman finding her way in the world. She’s vulnerable on the opening track “Music,” a spare piano ballad that allows the singer to show off her spine-chilling vocal chops as she recalls her blue-collar roots and pays homage to her late father. “Usually I’m crazily obsessive about chasing my best performance when I’m cutting vocals,” she says. “But for ‘Music,’ I put my perfectionist ego aside and did a couple takes all the way through, singing through my tears. The emotion was more important to me than anything else.” She’s emotional, too, on the haunting “I Am,” the only song from her earlier sessions to make the album. “This song is my mantra,” she says.”

If it sounds like there’s a lot of ground covered here, there is—which is exactly what JoJo wanted. She called the album Mad Love. because it’s the first thing that feels like it’s 100% her voice. “This album is passionate, crazy, vulnerable and all about the thing that keeps us going—love,” she says. “It’s inspired by the music I grew up listening to—and like my generation, refuses to be put in a box. I tried so many things along the way, but I realized I needed to be true to myself and do this on my own terms.” 

Now, she’s ready to turn it over to the fans who have stuck with her after a full decade of challenges. “I don’t want them to experience me,” she says. “I want them to experience themselves. This music is for you. Listen to this in your car, do your workout with it, get ready to it, cry to it. It comes from my life, but it’s not for me anymore.” She smiles. “It’s for everyone.”
