Acclaimed singer-songwriter JoJo officially joins Atlantic Records’ much celebrated roster today!
The singer makes her long awaited Atlantic debut with three new singles. The three distinct singles titled “III.” are: “Say Love,” “Save My Soul,” and “When Love Hurts”; all of which will appear on her highly anticipated third album.
The not yet titled new album has already made a major impact, months before its official announcement. The singles include an impressive roster of producers: the gorgeous power-ballad “Say Love” was produced by Harmony “H-Money” Samuels; The Family helmed the heartfelt track “Save My Soul”, and Jason Evigan and Benny Blanco took the lead on the infectious club-banger “When Love Hurts”.
Released when JoJo was just 13, 2004’s debut single, “Leave (Get Out),” reached the pinnacle on Billboard’s “Pop Songs” chart, making her the youngest-ever solo artist to have a #1 single in the United States. A true international smash, “Leave (Get Out)” earned RIAA gold certification as well as gold and platinum certification around the world. What’s more, the single’s companion video dominated MTV, VH1, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and The N, spending 50 days on MTV’s Total Request Live (including two atop the TRL countdown) while also leading to JoJo receiving a “Best New Artist” nomination from the MTV Video Music Awards – again making history as the youngest solo artist to be so honored.
JoJo’s immediately identifiable vocals were featured on records by such diverse artists as Timbaland and Pharrell. Her featured track, “Freq” on Pharrell’s chart-topping album “G I R L”, was celebrated by critics as one of the best songs on the album. Her own brilliant solo output continued with 2010’s “CAN’T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME,” an independently released mixtape which drew over 750,000 downloads in its first week online. “Disaster,” her next single/video, arrived in 2011 to great acclaim and chart success, celebrated by a series of international concert tours, radio festival appearances, and national TV performances.
