After a signing a new record deal in 2014, JoJo is finally set to release her first album in 10 years on October 14th through Atlantic Records.
To say this is anticipated is an understatement. Since her debut in 2004, many have been wondering what happened to the Pop Star whom had the highest hopes set out for her. Despite some serious record label troubles and being treated with her Agape mixtape in the midst of the confusion, Mad Love is set to put her back in the spotlight where she belongs as well as re-introduce us to the vocal powerhouse.
The title track, Mad Love. is emblematic of Ms. Levesque… She never remains the same in terms of sound and although we’ve only heard a taste of what she can do, it’s exciting to see her engage her listeners with this new soulful sound. Mad Love. starts on a controlled simmer and eventually boils over, hands in the air as you try to grasp the excellence spewing and hardening through your ears.
Welcome back JoJo – take a listen below.
The history between Anderson.Paak and extreme looper Knxwledge is an extensive one, so it’s easy to understand that when they come together as NxWorries that their music is nothing less than trans-formative. After news broke that the duo would not only be releasing a new album, but that it was also dubbed by Paak himself as his “best work yet,” we got goosebumps. Both have dropped exemplary music between 2015 and 2016, straying away from the noise rap hubbub and refining their smooth, fluid works and sounds respectively.
Fast forward a few months and we now have an official release. Yes Lawd will be available to the masses on October 21st through Stones Throw with an extensive 19 track song list. Along with this news, we were treated with a single from the album titled Lyk Dis. It’s textbook Paak and Knx… fierce vocals and smooth talking as the beat knocks subtly, leaving you nothing left to do but bounce along. Take a listen below.
