Someone get Joanna.
I am SO glad Jojo got her free from Blackground Records. We’re finally going to get a proper album (if that even exists in 2014) from her, and it’s welcomed and highly anticipated.
Until then and in the meantime in between time, she drops off the #LoveJo mixtape/EP project on her SoundCloud page.
It clocks in at a quick ~16 minutes, but the 4 tracks that it has pack a definite punch. She teams with Da Internz to do some great vocal work on covers of Anita Baker’s “Caught Up In The Rapture” (which she makes her own, never doing too much but sitting in a nice pocket vocally that fits for her aesthetic) and Phil Collins’ “Take Me Home”. There’s a gospel inspired track called “Glory” which will give you chills as well. Such a sparkling vocal.
Jojo’s voice is welcomed back with open arms and I hope she gets material that is current and will propel her to the tops of the Top 40 charts, where a voice like that belongs and deserves the success she’s worked so hard for.
What do you think?
