Singer/songwriters Alessia Cara and JoJo have built a devoted fan base thanks to their honest, inspiring lyrics and incredible musicality.
The musicians first teamed up together for Cara’s video “Scars To Your Beautiful,” which features real people sharing stories of their emotional and physical scars, with members of the gay and transgender communities, cancer survivors and more represented. JoJo appears in the video, thanks to the two women sharing an admiration for one another’s careers (as well as the same management team).
Now, JoJo and Alessia have hit the studio together and we couldn’t be more excited. After a decade-long battle with her record label, JoJo is finally releasing her first full-length studio album since 2006’s The High Road.
Mad Love, which is set to be released on October 14, features 11 new tracks, including the lead single “Fuck Apologies” featuring Wiz Khalifa.
JoJo has begun uploading lyrics and short videos of herself singing the new songs a capella on her Instagram page, including her upcoming duet with Remy Ma on “FAB” and “I Can Only” with Alessia Cara.
It’s difficult to tell from JoJo’s performance whether the song is an upbeat pop track or soft ballad, but one thing we do know is that we can’t wait to hear these two vocalists make magic happen together.
