JoJo – what a throwback. Yep, the chick who sang ‘Leave (Get Out)’. Bet you didn’t think you’d be reading this review today, but she’s certainly back and ready to throw some bangers our way.
She’s definitely brought old-school back with her new album Mad Love which meshes R&B, pop and some pretty darn impressive high notes together for an Ariana Grande-esque feel. You start to feel hints of those classic and exotic R&B tunes in ‘Like This’ and ‘Good Thing’ which we can probably expect to hear in Fruity in about five years’ time.
‘F*** Apologies’ features Wiz Khalifa and gets into the real nitty-gritty of what is probably a relationship gone wrong. If you’re looking for a real good “screw you” song then look no further. Wiz’s rap is short and sweet and ultimately snazzy so I think that’s a smashing collaboration.
I can totally see a bunch of 90s kids hitting this album up. Don’t worry, it can be our little secret. Although I don’t know why you’d keep it a secret, JoJo isn’t even a guilty pleasure to me. She is R&B and she’s bringing back those slick beats and sassy lyrics. This album recreates all those old songs we used to watch on YouTube and somehow incorporates a modern pop element into it and gives off a Zara Larsson track vibe.Uptempo ‘Vibe’ is one to add to the pres playlist.
Perhaps more of an album for the girls but hey, boys don’t be afraid to check it out.
