New Music: JoJo – Far From Heaven


It’s been a while since we’ve heard from JoJo, but that has changed today thanks to a random email containing a new song entitled “Far From Heaven.”

Currently working on her much-anticipated Atlantic Records debut, fans of the singer will be praising her once again after hearing the soulful new ballad.

“So far from heaven with nowhere to run / Should of seen it coming but we followed the sun / Far from perfect in this universe / No use fixing the things that never worked,” she sings over the piano-driven instrumental.

Since signing with Atlantic Records, JoJo has been working on her third album with Harmony Samuels, Da Internz, Noisecastle III, and more.

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


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.

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


“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:
