JoJo Returns With Three New Songs for Your Listening Pleasure
"SURPRISE!!! -- we LIVE!," she wrote on Instagram with a link to her official website and a hashtag for tringle.
The first track, "When Love Hurts," is an electronica-inspired song produced by Benny Blanco and Jason Evigan. The "Leave (Get Out)" songbird, who says she was inspired by house music with this effort, explained that the song is "about when something is moving you, to feel a strong emotion, that's when you know it's worth sticking around and fighting for." This can all be heard on "The Story of III," the introductory speech to the tringle of songs. She also admits that it's the perfect soundtrack for working out or "jamming in my car, cruising."
Another dance floor-ready song is "Save My Soul," but this one has a deeper message. "To me 'Save my Soul' is about addiction and about feeling helpless to something. That can be a lover. It could be love or any other drug," said JoJo. She also describes the producers as having the ability to "balance of infusing big pop songs with live instrumentation."
The 24-year-old singer slows it down with the help of Harmony Samuels on "Say Love," which showcases how her voice has matured since her "Leave (Get Out)" and "Baby It's You" hits from 11 years ago.
"If you really care for me say love," sings JoJo "When I say 'I love you' you just say me too but I want you to say love," she continues to belt over the Harmony Samuels-produced beat.
"I can't wait to see you soon," JoJo before signing off and it seems she is making headway on that statement. Early Friday morning, the singer announced that she will be having a concert in New York City on Aug. 28.
"Surprise #2.... NYC I'll be in you next Friday. Let's sing and twirl around and be free..," she wrote on Instagram.
