Today Aaliyah would have been 38 unfortunately her life was taken at a very young age, but her impact on music has stayed. She was only 22 when tragically died on a plane crash while leaving the Bahamas after a music video shoot.
Celebrating her birthday there will be plenty of tributes to Aaliyah on social media and JoJo just so happened to be one of those people.
During one of her shows on the Mad Love tour, she took time out to appreciate the late singer, covering her hit “Are You That Somebody” which is still played on the radio to this day. It came out in 1998, so almost 20 years later people still love to hear it.
The only good thing about 2016 was JoJo making her big comeback. This year has been a huge dumpster fire and ‘Mad Love’ helped make it better. For years I have been waiting for this comeback and now that it is finally here, we can celebrate.
Today the talented singer turned 26 and what better way to celebrate this incredible vocalist than by well, showing off her vocal performances.
Below I put together a list of my top ten JoJo songs, they may be different from yours but let’s respect each other. Let’s all just agree that JoJo is absolutely magical.
10. When Love Hurts
8. Leave Get Out
6. Too Little Too Late
5. Coming For You
4. Like This
3. Fuck Apologies
1. Marvin’s Room
So there you have it! Those are my top ten must haves when it comes to JoJo songs. Let’s be real, she has a ton of great ones but I had to narrow them down.
Maybe when JoJo comes to Boston she will let me interview her? We can all hope, right?
Happy birthday and I can’t wait to hear more new music!
Oh hell yeah, I am ready for this tour. I have been ready for this tour for the last decade. Let’s do this JoJo ! Earlier this week the singer released the dates for the UK leg of her tour, her first UK tour ever, and now she is giving the states some love!
It looks like JoJo will kick off her US leg in Portland, Oregon on February 15th and then finish it in May 3rd in New York. She has a lot of cities to cover and I am sure that this tour will be absolutely insane!
JoJo definitely brings the fire when she performs live.
Tickets go on sale December 9th and you can get them through axis.com.
You know how sometimes you hear a song and it just hits you, it says what you have been trying to say but couldn’t find the words? JoJo has absolutely done this with her most recent song “Music”, a simple title for a long song dedicated towards her love of music, that simple.
JoJo is of course releasing her highly anticipated album Mad Love on October 12th and I was already sold for the album, let’s be real. I have been ready for a JoJo comeback for years now but this song just solidified my choice. There are few artists who can really put emotion in their songs. JoJo just did it though. Not many songs make me cry, this one did.
Alright, enough of me talking about how much I cried during this song.
JoJo is not playing with this new album! ‘Fuck Apologies’ is absolute fire and well, ‘FAB’ is too. In case you haven’t figured it out, FAB stands up with fake ass bitches. Personally if I was going to run for president this song would be my campaign anthem. I got not time for fake ass bitches, ya feel?
Let’s be real. JoJo is here to stay and she is here to slay.
Thank you for coming back to us JoJo, we don’t deserve you but we appreciate it!
Remember her album “Mad Love” comes out October 14th! Be sure to buy it!
I am so ready for this album to come out, I have been a big advocate of the JoJo comeback (even if she won’t acknowledge me on twitter, I won’t be salty, okay maybe a little). JoJo’s album will be released on October 14th, but it will be available for pre-order starting September 16th!
Just to make us a little more excited, JoJo decided to share a few videos of her singing songs from the upcoming album. One of them is a duet with Alessia Cara, so that song will most likely be my favorite on the entire album. She is also teasing a duet with Remy Ma which will be titled “FAB”, when I assume means fake ass bitch. Not totally sure but it is my guess.
Anyway, check out these videos and get excited! JoJo can out sing your fav, so they are all shook at the moment.
