In Part 2 of our exclusive interview with JoJo, the singer, who most recently collaborated with Timbaland on Shock Value II, moves past the label drama and looks toward the future. Now signed to Blackground/Interscope Records, the 19-year-old Bostonian is gearing up for the release of her third album in 2010 and already hasTimbaland and Pharrell in her corner. Plus, she clues us in on the project’s direction, her plans for the leaked records, and her mixtape with Clinton Sparks and Chester French.
“I wanted to do something that people would be like, ‘Wow, this girl has come a long way and she’s really taking the reins,’” she tells Rap-Up TV of her new music. “I wanted people to get a sense of who I am.”
Where has R&B singer JoJo been? Rap-Up TV sat down with the “Leave (Get Out)” hitmaker in Los Angeles for an exclusive interview. JoJo, who just turned 19 this weekend, updated us on her whereabouts, parting ways with her former label, her back-up plan, and current musical inspirations. Check back tomorrow when she discusses the all-star team behind her first album in over three years.
