New Music: JoJo feat. Remy Ma – FAB


JoJo is coming hard.

Following her impressive, retro-styled album title track “Mad Love,” the powerhouse vocalist doubles down with the infectious new single, “FAB” featuring Remy Ma.

One look at the title and you might assume the ladies are all about being fabulous, although they are, it is in-fact an anthem against all the “fake ass bitches.”

“Fake ass bitches / When they smile in your face, but behind you it ain’t well wishes / When they eatin’ all the food off your plate and they don’t do dishes,” sings JoJo.

The songstress says the track isn’t just about one gender, and that it’s also meant to be a celebration. “This song is very direct,” she told The FADER. “We’ve all encountered fake ass bitches, no matter the gender. So I wrote a song about it, calling them out but also celebrating the real ones.”

Following the title track and the Wiz Khalifa-assisted single “F**k Apologies,” “FAB.” is the latest release from JoJo’s long-awaited third album Mad Love., which hit stores on Oct. 14.

New Music: JoJo – Mad Love


JoJo is serving it to us retro-style with her new single “Mad Love.”

In exactly one month, Jo’s much anticipated third album, Mad Love, will finally be released. Unexpectedly today, the title track from the album was released online and it’s everything you’ve come to expect from her and more. The Motown inspired feel-good record finds Joanna singing of a love that definitely isn’t perfect and might not be good for her, but it’s one that is real.

“You give me mad love / How far can we go? / Nobody knows,” she sings during the chorus. “You give me bad love / But I’ll take what I get / I’m starving for it.”

In a brief interview with Vogue, JoJo talked about what she hopes will come after the release of her third studio album. “I want respect. I want my fans to be happy. I want them to feel like it was worth the wait. I want them to feel like these songs are what they can relate to, and what I try to do is replace my expectation with appreciation,” explained the singer. “Honestly, what I want to do is start the rest of my life, because I felt stagnant for so long. So with this album, what I wanted to do was have it be the starting point for the rest of my career, and I want it to build.”

Mad Love will be released October 14 via Atlanta Records, and will boast features from Alessia Cara, Remy Ma, and Wiz Khalifa.

Video: Alessia Cara – Scars To Your Beautiful


Alessia Cara empowers with the video to her new single, “Scars to Your Beautiful.”

In honor of her 20th birthday, the “Here” songstress has revealed her moving visuals about self-love. “You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are,” she sings. “You don’t have to change a thing, the world can change its heart.”

Several people share personal struggles with self-love in the video, including JoJo, who makes a cameo. “A lot of people aren’t afraid to give their opinions,” she says. “Whether they’re hurtful or not.”

Teaming up with the empowerment campaign I Am That Girl, Cara explains why the track is important to her. “The world sometimes tells us that we shouldn’t be happy with ourselves if we don’t fit certain standards of beauty,” she told Cosmopolitan. “‘Scars To Your Beautiful’ is my reminder that beauty isn’t only one look, shape, size, or color. Beauty comes in all forms—tangible and intangible—inside and out. We need to recognize that.”

She will perform the potent single on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on July 19. After that, on Sept. 29, she will hit the road for a 21-city run on the “Know-It-All Tour Part 2.”

Watch the video for “Scars to Your Beautiful” below.

JoJo Stuns With Performance of “Save My Soul” on “Seth Meyers”


One of the few people we’re anticipating a full album from currently is the very talented JoJo. If her past efforts from her youth up until her most recent delivery of the ‘Tringle‘ project aren’t enough to validate our reasoning, seeing her do live and acoustic performances should be good enough.

Marking her first network performance of the incredible single “Save My Soul” on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” last night, the powerhouse vocalist held up to the standards that we’ve all secretly set for her.

Dressed in all black and backed by some singers who exude #BlackGirlMagic, we absolutely can’t wait to see what JoJo hands out this year for both new and old fans to bask in.

While we’re sure that she’ll have the backing that she needs this time around, we’re hoping “Save My Soul” gets the respect it deserves!

Take a look at the performance below!

JoJo Delivers Acoustic Performance of “Save My Soul”


Now that we officially have JoJo off of hiatus, the young singer is wasting NO time giving us what we missed over the years.

Delivering an exceptional acoustic performance of her newest single “Save My Soul,” the powerful vocalist has us in awe every time she debuts one of these. Emotionally filled and vocally impressive, the performance is a great representation of her talent.

Talking about the song, JoJo explains, “‘Save My Soul’ is a song about addiction, and I grew up seeing addiction very close to me; Both my parents have struggled with it. So as a kid, you don’t kinda know when the bottom is going to fall through or what’s gonna happen next. I’ve also struggled with feeling powerless to definitely a situation; I’ve felt powerless to a person, and just, you know, certain things in life. So, it’s when you feel out of control, that’s what it’s about. To me, it’s like the addict singing to whatever it is that they feel powerless to.”

Watch JoJo give it her all below:
