JoJo Gives Stunning Acoustic Performance of “Say Love”


JoJo was gone for a minute, but now she’s back with the jump-off, clearly.

After the release of her three-song rollout – which hit our ears in August – the talented Boston native has been on an ever-growing high since. Debuting the visual for “Say Love” last month, it’s only right that she now releases the acoustic version of the Harmony Samuels-produced fan favorite.

“Every song on the album is true to me. I can’t sing something – whether I wrote it or not – that I can’t feel. And I had a girlfriend that was in the studio with me and she was going through that exact thing. She had been the first to say ‘I love you’ and he didn’t say ‘I love you’ back. She was crying as I was recording it, and I knew that I had tapped into something and I was putting myself in her shoes; I wanted to feel what she was feeling,” JoJo said of the single.

Absolutely stunning, the raw recording of JoJo proves that she’s surely one of the most talented vocalists of her generation.

Take a listen to the compelling and heart-wrenching performance below:

Video: JoJo – Say Love


While the debut of the video to her fun and flirty single “When Love Hurts” is just under a month old, R&B songstress JoJo is back with the accompanying visual to the emotional single “Say Love.”

Released as one of three singles at once, “Say Love,” is a powerful ballad about love and feeling as if she’s missing a little more than she’s being offered. Setting the tone for autumn, the new video showcases JoJo crying out for love.

When speaking of the visual, she told BuzzFeed: “For the second visual off the tringle, I wanted something to contrast our stylized warehouse from ‘When Love Hurts.’ This song called for something open and intimate, while focusing on the tension of being with someone but not fully being on the same page. Calling out for more. The backdrop of sprawling field and tall trees reminded me of autumn in New England, my favorite time and place. I had so much fun making this video and I hope you love it like I do.”

JoJo is currently working on  her third album – her first since 2006’s The High Road – set to be released via Atlantic Records soon.
