Musical Inspiration: Jojo Re-Releases Her Hits With A Dope Visual Artist
Y’all! we are so shook! While casually scrolling instagram last night we realized that one of our very favorite boss Queen’s re-release her OG hit albums! Jojo is a pure and true testament to sticking to your art, your grind, your craft, and your passion! Who didn’t grow up to know and love Jojo’s first bomb ass albums? But for some reason Jojo’s career has seemingly been at a stand still for some years! We don’t know about y’all, but whenever we have tried to stream her classic albums on Spotify or Apple music they just aren’t there, which is so frustrating when you really want some positive energy music to vibe out to!
So here’S the tea:
Her first album is unavailable on streaming services. Her former label Blackground, kept her locked in a seven-year contractual bind, is the reason. In 2017, she tweeted “My former label removed my music, I unfortunately have absolutely no control over what they do or don't do…I want to let bygones be bygones. I pray one day they put my music back up."
However, Jojo always wants to make sure her longtime fans are taken care of. In a 2016 interview with VIBE, she stated “I'm really fortunate [to have fans] who’ve grown with me and have stayed committed and interested, and I don't take it for granted.” This one is for you!
About the album art:
She even got one of our favorite Queens to design her album art! Check out Sew Trill and fall in love!
Jojo like Lauryn Hill and many other artists fell victim to label ownership, but she didn’t give up! She hustled and hopped back in the studio with Jermaine Dupri and just like that she’s back! You gotta give these re-releases a listen sis! They are bomb!
HOW TO LISTEN:
You can listen to all her re-released tracks on Apple Music!
She also dropped 2 new singles! We will be vibing out to them all weekend! Enjoy xo
