Listen: JoJo Releases Anticipated New Album ‘Mad Love.’


JoJo’s much-anticipated third studio album, Mad Love. is finally here.

A decade in the making, the follow-up to 2006’s The High Road features 11 tracks, and four more on the deluxe, including the Wiz Khalifa-assisted single “F*ck Apologies.,” the Alessia Cara duet “I Can Only.,” and “FAB.” featuring Remy Ma.

JoJo’s road to this album has been extensive and exhausting, with plenty of life lessons and emotion behind it. Recently speaking about the creative process and album title, she explained.

“‘Mad Love.’ means so many different things, and I loved that about the title. It was one of the first songs that I wrote for this album, and I felt like it kind of shaped the intention of it, of this work. And, a phrase that I use in my family a lot, we say, ‘I love you madly.’ That’s that I love you through it all, I love you as you are, I love you in a crazy way, in a deep way, in a way that other people might not understand. And that’s how I feel about music, and that’s what my relationship is with my fans, and it’s an intense, passionate love. That’s also the love that I like to have in my romantic life. So, all of that is represented on this album,” she told iHeartRadio station Star 105.7.

Continuing, JoJo shared the meaning behind the period at the end of each song on the tracklist. “Fans my notice, there is a period not only after the album’s title, but also at the end of each song title, and it’s stylized that way to hold meaning. I’m sure about this, and Mad Love., it’s definitive. It’s just where I’m at. I have a tattoo on my right hand that says ‘Truth.’ and I got it when I was 18, I think. I’ve just always been self-assured. Ending each title with a period just supports that.”

Watch: JoJo Takes A Trip Down Memory Lane with “Music.” Video


As she gets closer and closer to releasing her anticipated new album Mad Love., JoJo takes a trip down memory lane in the nostalgic video for her dedication song “Music.

Belting out her signature vocals over a simple piano track, Jojo sings about family, growth, and the impact music has had on her life. The visual is filled with a collage of childhood videos of the young singer performing, doing interviews, and recording.

There are stirring moments throughout the VHS-themed clip, perhaps most moving when JoJo sings about her late father.

“Went on the road to make my daddy proud / But I lost him and so I sang to the crowd / My only hope is that he’s looking down / Thinking, ‘Oh my God. My daughter’s doing it now’,” she sings.

Mad Love., featuring the Remy Ma-assisted “FAB” and the Wiz Khalifa-backed “F**k Apologies,” is due out Oct. 14.

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.”
