JoJo is resilient. That’s the message that comes through loud and clear when you listen to Mad Love, her debut album with Atlantic Records and her first LP in ten years. She’s empowered. Themes of hard-won independence and strength are vividly realized on Mad Love, which swerves from slinky alt-R&B to exultant pop bangers and back again. It’s no surprise, given that JoJo, now 25, had a heavy hand in writing the entire album after first attempting to cut tracks penned by outsiders.

Truly finding her voice was a journey that's taken a lifetime. Born Joanna Levesque and raised in Massachusetts, she notched a #1 hit on the Billboard Pop Songs chart with her debut single, "Leave (Get Out)," when she was only 13; she was the youngest solo artist to have a #1 single in the U.S. She followed it up with a string of additional singles, most notably "Too Little Too Late," another Top 3 smash, and the hit album The High Road in 2006.
In 2015, she released a critically acclaimed trio of singles to give fans a first taste of the sound she'd been developing with tunesmiths. Ever prolific, she recorded dozens of songs. But a series of major life events -- including the passing of her beloved father and a break-up -- inspired her to start fresh at the top of 2016 when conceptualizing the vibe of her first studio album in a decade. It comes as no surprise, then, that there's so much authenticity and vitality in Mad Love; it's a document of a young woman finding her way in the world.
