since leaving Atlantic Records and launching her Clover Music imprint through a joint venture with Warner Bros, singer Jojo has returned with her new studio album, Good to Know. The 9 track LP features the previously released singles Man and Lonely Hearts, with productions from Doc McKinney, Lido, and 30 Roc.

“I called the album good to know because of everything I’ve learned in the past few years – every piece of feedback, criticism (internal or external), whatever it is – it’s all just information. And it’s all good!” said JoJo of the follow-up to 2016’s Mad Love. “I’ve been lucky to have the space to reflect on my own journey up to now, and I hope people can take comfort in the fact that I am not anywhere near perfect, and I will never sugarcoat anything. We are all constantly living and learning, and that’s what makes this life so fun.”

A few months back singer JoJo made her return back to music when she released her buzz track Joanna. Since then JoJo followed up with the release of her official single Sabotage feat Chika.

Today JoJo released the official video on Fader. When speaking about the videos concept JoJo said – contemplating patterns and my part in the end of the relationship — it’s over and it’s my fault!! Although we can’t really “ruin” anything that isn’t meant for us, our egos can make us believe we’re all mighty enough to ruin everything. Check out the new visual below.

In the past few years JoJo has experienced some label hell she has since then got out of that label and now in a better situation. Just yesterday Jojo has re-released her self-titled 2004 debut and 2006’s The High Road, with re-recorded vocals and slightly new arrangements.

The reasoning for Jojo to re-release these albums was due to her previous label Blackground records not having both albums on digital retailers and streaming services and also prevented her from releasing any music while she was under contract. “My former label removed my music,” JoJo tweeted last year. “I unfortunately have absolutely no control over what they do or don’t do.”

13320210_713721615437147_1035359758_nWe are slowly coming to the end of 2016 which was a great year for music if I don`t say it myself, we heard so many great albums and saw so many great comebacks that have uplifted and inspired people all around. Solange made a much welcomed return with arguably one of the best albums in years “A Seat On The Table” which managed to join her sister`s groundbreaking album “Lemonade” at charting at number one. Britney Spears released a gem of an album “Glory” which saw her getting back to the old Britney we grew up with, she expressed so much confidence and her vocals shined. And this year we also saw Fantasia step all the way out of her comfort zone and create a masterpiece that displayed her creativity beautifully. And we were introduced to so many great artist this year that have touched me with their creative sounds and strong voices.

The list is not numerical in order of “most favorite” as the field this year was so tight and definitely offered a variety of great albums depending on your mood.
1. Beyoncé – LemonadeLemonade 1 (1)

‘I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up, I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.’

What I loved about this album is the fact that she was willing to experiment and push at the boundaries of her sound and showcase different sides to her that many people can relate to as she did with her 2013 album, “Beyoncé”. The visual album is both an ode to black women and a deeply personal love story dealing with all the ups and downs of a relationship – tackling urgent themes such as paranoia, anger, denial, redemption and forgiveness.

My favorite track is “Sorry” an upbeat number that sees her displaying a “sorry not sorry” attitude, as she heads to the club with her girls and is not paying her cheating ex not one bit of attention, she is over him:“Me and my baby, we gon’ be alright, we gon’ live a good life. Big homie better grow up, me and my whoadies ’bout to stroll up. I see them boppers in the corner, they sneaking out the back door. He only want me when I’m not there, he better call Becky with the good hair…” It`s all about taking your power back and focusing on rebuilding yourself from a bad relationship..

Also “All Night”, a love ballad that samples Outkast`s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious”, it finds her singing about staying committed to her man even through all the ups and downs, as the love they share will rise above anything that comes their way: “They say true love’s the greatest weapon to win the war caused by pain but every diamond has imperfections. But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away, Oh nothing real can be threatened. True love breathes salvation back into me with every tear came redemption and my torturer became a remedy…”
