JoJo is resilient. That's the message that comes through loud and clear when you listen to Mad Love., her debut album with Atlantic Records and her first LP in ten
years. She's empowered. She's in control. And she's grown as hell.
You can hear it in her Wiz Khalifa-assisted lead single, "F@#$ Apologies." It's a powerful statement of intent that announces to the world that the singer-songwriter isn't going to let anyone make her feel small.
"As a woman, I find myself apologizing for things that I really don't need to apologize for," JoJo says. "Even as simple as when someone bumps into you." She laughs. "Guess what' I'm not sorry you bumped into me. Overall, though, the song to me is an anthem of empowerment. It's about being confident and comfortable enough with who you are to live unapologetically."
Themes of hard-won independence and strength are vividly realized on Mad Love., which swerves from slinky alt-R&B to exultant pop bangers and back again. It's no surprise, given that JoJo, now 25, had a heavy hand in writing the entire album after first attempting to cut tracks penned by outsiders.
"I was starting to lose myself in the process of being sent songs," she says. "But I stood up and remembered that I'm a songwriter, and I want to be heard."
