About JoJo


JoJo[born Joanna Levesque] is a chart-topping, award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress who, at just 30 years old, is already a veteran of the music industry. 17 years into her career, JoJo made a “triumphant return” [Uproxx] last year with her fourth studio albumgood to know, debuting at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and earning widespread global acclaim fromVulture,TIME,Variety,NYLON,NPR,The FADER, and more, withAssociated Pressproclaiming “good to knowis more than good. It’s grand.” At just 13, JoJo burst onto the scene with her self-title debut album, whose breakout smash “Leave (Get Out)” made her the youngest-ever solo artist to have a debut #1 single in the U.S.JoJowent on to sell over four million copies and became the singer’s first Platinum record, which she followed with a string of additional hits, including the Top 3 single “Too Little Too Late.” In 2016, following 10 years of legal battles with her former label that prevented her from releasing new music, JoJo returned withMad Love.,which debuted in the Top 10 on theBillboardTop 200. In 2018, JoJo re-recorded and re-released her first two albums (JoJoandThe High Road) under her own label Clover Music, so her fans could finally get the nostalgia they had been missing for so many years. She has also pushed herself outside the confines of genre, collaborating with artists ranging from PJ Morton [on the GRAMMY Award-winning R&B hit “Say So”] to Jacob Collier [lending her vocal stylings to the jazzy “It Don’t Matter”]. On October 1, 2021, JoJo releasedTrying Not To Think About It. The capsule project is a musical expression of her continued honesty, vulnerability and transparency around mental health, tackling the different shades of it –including anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, relationship self-sabotage, and emotional immaturity. Following its release, JoJo embarked on a sold out run of six live performance dates across the United States in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville and Los Angeles.

JoJo

JoJo is triumphant. That’s the message that came through loud and clear when listening to Mad Love, her 3rd highly anticipated studio album which debuted #1 on the iTunes Pop Album Chart and #6 on the Billboard Top 200.  JoJo’s empowered. She’s in control. And she’s grown as hell.

Truly finding her voice was a journey that’s taken a lifetime. Born Joanna Levesque and raised in Massachusetts, she notched a #1 hit on the Billboard Pop Songs chart with her debut single, “Leave (Get Out),” when she was only 13; she was the youngest solo artist to have a #1 single in the U.S. She followed it up with a string of additional singles, most notably “Too Little Too Late,” another Top 5 smash, and the hit album The High Road in 2006. “Being a child star is a weird thing because your identity is put onto you,” she says. “As much of an individual as I was, I still had a lot of cooks in the kitchen telling me where to go and how to dress and what songs to record.”

It didn’t help that she was trapped in a deal with a label that was going bankrupt, which kept her from releasing music commercially. As the years passed, she earned a devoted following online releasing free mixtapes featuring tracks from top hitmakers like Pharrell Williams and Noah “40” Shebib until she was finally liberated from her contract in 2013 after seven years of limbo. 

In support of Mad Love, JoJo embarked on a 78-city world tour in 2017. With sold-out shows across the globe, including Fonda Theater in Los Angeles, KoKo and Heaven in London, and two nights at Irving Plaza in New York City, JoJo delivered a blistering set that garnered her incredible live reviews.

“Pop’s delayed diva comes of age in ferocious style…installed with a voice that skims from delicacy to sledgehammer vehemence, she’s equipped to slay, and does.” –The Guardian

After her sold-out Mad Love Tour, JoJo took the second half of 2017 to recharge and find inspiration for her upcoming fourth studio album. In the midst of recording the album, JoJo recently announced that she will be embarking on a 15-city tour this summer. The LEAKS, COVERS & MIXTAPES Tour will be an intimate performance of exclusive songs that have leaked online, as well as material from her critically acclaimed mixtapes and cover performances.
