Jojo informed fans a new record is imminent, and this might be the first taste.
When Jojo was 12-years-old, she signed a deal with Blackground Records that would impact her career for over a decade, forcing the talented crooner to put forth only a handful of records since she began in 2002. After a series of missteps which blocked her from releasing anything for years, Jojo filed a lawsuit against the label for “irreparable damages to her professional career.” She has since rid herself from that group and aligned with Interscope.
Who knows where Jojo would sit in current music culture had she dropped music on a more consistent basis, but nothing can take away her uniqueness. Since that suit, Jojo shared two mixtapes and, most recently, her Tringle EP, but held off on a proper record since 2006’s The High Road, but that’s all about to change.
The “When Love Hurts” singer Tweeted fans her album will be finished in April and sent off for mastering and will debut later this year:
HELL YEAH. in LOVE WITH IT/ so anxious for you to hear. Done with all recording April 4th. Then mixing planning etc https://t.co/T8x5UTAHEY— JoJo (@iamjojo) March 22, 2016
One of the finished songs could be the newly-surfaced Frankie Goes To Hollywood re-working of “Relax,” but more likely it was recorded for something else and left on the cutting room floor. Listen below:
