JoJo is a pop and R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She released her first album, JoJo, in June 2004, and the album’s first single, “Leave (Get Out),” was No.1 on the US Billboard Pop Chart. She was only 13 years old – the youngest solo artist in history to ever top the Billboard charts. She’s also starred in movies like Aquamarine and RV (with Robin Williams) and in TV shows like Hawaii 5-0 and Lethal Weapon.
In 2006, she released her second studio album, The High Road, which was also a great success, but her third album, Mad Love, was delayed due to record label disputes. She realized she didn’t have power over her own voice, and this was non-negotiable.
In 2008, JoJo founded her own record label, Clover Music, and re-released her previous albums. Her fourth studio album, good to know, will drop in spring 2020, and in April she will kick off an international tour.
JoJo was offered her first record deal at six years old. From a young age, she has felt immense pressure from the music industry to become who they want her to be, but JoJo made a stand for herself.
