JoJo Joins B.o.B. In Acoustic Performance Of ‘John Doe’

jojo-bob

Singer-songwriter JoJo is definitely taking advantage of her new home at Atlantic Records. Joining forces with labelmate B.o.B., the young and feisty diva and ATLien performed an acoustic version of his hit single, “John Doe“.

Filling in for the original vocalist on the song, Priscilla Renea, JoJo sounded absolutely incredible against B.o.B’s guitar skills. Showing off in front of a very intimate crowd, we’re hoping this isn’t the last of seeing them perform together – especially since we’ll be receiving JoJo’s third album some time soon.

Catch the performance below:

JoJo Sets The Stage On Fire With Fader Fort At SXSW Performance

jojo-fader-fort

“You know it’s just a little too late…” Or is it? Apparently not musically for big voiced singer, Jojo. Stepping on the stage to perform her 2006 hit single, “Too Little Too Late”, Jojo made it her point to remind us of why we’ve been waiting on her to hit the scene for so long.

Thighs out for the viewing, the incredible songstress tore down the stage at this past week’s Fader Fort at SXSW showcase. Hitting the stage earlier in the afternoon in a red high double split dress, the newly signed Atlantic Records artist gave audience members a flash back to their early years as she performed both “Too Little Too Late” and “Leave (Get Out)”. Also taking to some of her numbers on her most recent project, #LoveJo, the young star belted out her covers of the Phil Collins “Take Me Home” and one of our favorites, “Caught Up In The Rapture” by Anita Baker.

Austin was surely a place that everyone walked away from saying that experienced a true show to remember. However, if you weren’t there to see it firsthand, take a look at the clip below:

New Music: Dawn Richard feat. JoJo – Valkyrie (Art of War Remix)

jojo-dawn

Dawn Richard dropped her two Blackheart singles “Judith” and “Valkyrie” earlier this week, and now she surprises her Hearts with the remix to “Valkyrie.” The R&B songstress joins forces with JoJo on the Noisecastle III-produced record, which also features vocals from Deonte (of MDMA).

“This record is special in many ways,” said Dawn. “I wanted to do a collab with a female to show the essence of the record. A sort of female anthem. There is a cockiness in the record. It was only right to ask JoJo just because we are kindred spirits. I wanted her to feature on a record people wouldn’t expect her to do. I didn’t want the typical. The result is a masterpiece.”

Listen to the ladies collabo below:
