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 album good to know, debuting at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and earning widespread global acclaim from Vulture, TIME, Variety, NYLON, NPR, The FADER, and more, with Associated Press proclaiming “good to know is 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. JoJo went 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 with Mad Love., which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2018, JoJo re-recorded and re-released her first two albums (JoJo and The 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 will release Trying 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 and emotional insecurity. Following its release, JoJo will head on the road for a set of six live performance dates across the United States beginning October 2, 2021 in her hometown of Boston, MA and concluding October 11, 2021 in Los Angeles, CA.
