Biography

JoJo’s new album Jumping Trains explores the ever-shifting middle ground between strength and vulnerability while still maintaining a feel-good, uplifting vibe. “I call my music ‘pop with an anger-management problem,’ because it’s a little on the edge,” the 20-year-old singer and songwriter says. “You don’t know if I’m going to flip out on ...

Editorial Reviews

UK pressing of the 2006 sophomore album from the Teeny Boppin' superstar includes to bonus tracks: 'Do Whatcha Gotta Do' and 'I Can Take You There'. Armed with a top lineup of writers and producers, namely Swizz Beatz, Scott Storch, Diane Warren, Sean Garrett, Bo Dozier, Billy Steinberg, Josh Alexander, Ryan Leslie, and SoulShock and Karlin. The record's simple and sumptuous sonics are reminiscent of Soul and Jazz classics from back in the day. Not surprising, considering JoJo's greatest influences are artists like Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Etta James and Stevie Wonder. Mercury.

Listening to this album you'll have a hard time believing that the singer is not yet sixteen at the time of writing this, and that she already has a platinum album under her belt. The first album "Jojo" spawned the hit single "Leave (Get Out)" when she was a mere weenybopper of thirteen, and this year she's acted in two movies in addition to putting together her second album.

First single "Too Little Too Late" has been out for months, and has helped to create a lot of advance buzz for this album, which in my opinion delivers the goods big time. The single is about moving on after a failed relationship, and if you cast your mind back (some of us further than others) you can identify with the lyrics: "I was young / And in love / I gave you everything / But it wasn't enough"

The album begins with the R&B track "This Time", where she takes responsibility for a break-up, but isn't ready to give up as yet, and then she launches into a hip hop track "The Way You Do Me" which could easily fit right in on any Beyonce / Christina Aguilera / Pussycat Dolls / Danity Kane album. The title track is a great R&B ballad, and then comes my favorite track "Anything" which samples "Africa" by Toto in fine style. Since hearing this track for the first time, it hasn't left the player.

If you think she's done there, think again - and then listen to the Janet Jackson type track "Like That", the powerfully belted "Let It Rain", the outstanding ballads "Exceptional" and "How to Touch a Girl" and the R&B tracks "Good Ol'" and "Coming For You". The album closes on an inspirational note with "Note To God".

This is an exceptional sophomore album from a talented young artiste who still has limitless potential.

...doesn't give me a word good enough to discribe this album.

So, I'll go with what I know.

Jojo's sophomore effort completely succeeds. There are no 'fillers' on this album. This of course, is solely my opinion and there are people who will definately disagree with this. All in all, this album is amazing and you should really give it at least a chance. You might end up loving it like I do.

1.) This Time- (17/20): After listening to the whole album, I've come to the conclusion that this is a rather bland opening to such an album. But it's still a good song, with great beats and nice vocals.

2.) The Way You Do Me- (17/20): Again, great 'swing' beats and it has such powerful energy in it, but...it just doesn't appeal to me as much as others. Most likely because I find it difficult to believe that a, what, 15 year old, could be singing this, but that's most likely me.

3.) Too Little, Too Late- (19/20): What else could get me hooked on this CD? Honestly, if I hadn't heard this song, I wouldn't have given this CD a thought, just because I wasn't too big a fan of her first CD, apart from the first single. It really is a wonderful song. Powerful voice, good emotion...it's all there. I would go on, but most of you have probably already heard it somewhere, anyway.

4.) High Road- (20/20): Inspirational, Strong, ... the list could go on. If there is a song that one should live by, this is it. The person she sings about (herself, I presume?) is what people should all be like. Instead of going for revenge, just let it go and take the 'high road'. Two thumbs up. Definately.

5.) Anything- (17/20): One of those, what I like to call, 'crusing' songs. It's good when you just want to chill or relax. And it's got a sample of the song 'Africa'.

Teen singer JoJo arrived on the music scene in 2004 with her self-titled debut. The single spawned the TRL friendly hits "Leave (Get Out)" and "Baby It's You." In an industry where young singers sometimes turn out new albums every year, JoJo took her time working on her sophomore album. In between albums she made two movies RV and Aquamarine.

It was a risk, because in this fickle music industry, often out of site means out of mine. JoJo found no problem returning to the music spotlight. The first single from her sophomore album The High Road, "Too Little, Too Late," immediately became a favorite on MTV's TRL and on Itunes. The mid-tempo ballad also raced up the Billboard Chart.

So how does The High Road measure up to JoJo's debut album? Well JoJo sounds more mature. Twelve solid songs are included on the disc which is filled primarily with mid-tempo ballads with a few bangers. The Swizz Beats produced single "The Way You Do," is sure to be well loved. Other uptemp songs on the album include the "This Time," (which proves to be a kind of boring song to open up a great album), "Let It Rain," (which evokes memories of an Aaliyah or Missy Elliot song). "Let It Rain," has a track that makes you want to bounce. "Good Ol'" is also a bounce style uptempo track.

Overall, The High Road is filled with ballads. JoJo used a sample of the early 80's ToTo song "Africa," for the song "Anything." One of the best ballads on the album is the title track "The High Road." Other stand out songs include the first single "Too Little, Too Late," "Like That," and "How To Touch A Girl."

The High Road is a good album. But it's very mature. This being said, JoJo's core fans may feel that the album is a little too grown up for them. On another note, she may make more mature fans.
