“It’s clear that the golden age of JoJo is still ahead of us.” NYLON
JoJo has released her fiery new single “Man,” an empowering bop that finds her committed to enjoying being single until she finds a partner who is truly worthwhile. For the video, directed by Marc Klasfeld [Katy Perry, Jay-Z, …], she recruited friends Tinashe, Ari Lennox, Francia Raisa, JoJo Gomez, and JinJoo [of DNCE] to celebrate their independence alongside her.
“Man” is the official single from JoJo’s upcoming new album good to know, set for release May 1, 2020 on Clover Music / Warner Records and available now for pre-order here. With production from heavy hitters Doc McKinney [The Weeknd, Santigold], Lido [Halsey, Chance The Rapper], and 30 Roc [Roddy Ricch, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B], good to know is an R&B-infused, emotionally honest body of work centered around JoJo’s new-found confidence, both musically and personally.
JoJo elaborates, “I called the album good to know because of everything I’ve learned in the past few years – every piece of feedback, criticism (internal or external), whatever it is – it’s all just information. And it’s all good! I’ve been lucky to have the space to reflect on my own journey up to now, and I hope people can take comfort in the fact that I am not anywhere near perfect, and I will never sugarcoat anything. We are all constantly living and learning, and that’s what makes this life so fun.”

JoJo [born Joanna Levesque] is a chart-topping, award-winning singer, songwriter, and actress who, at just 29 years old, is already a veteran of the music industry, having released her self-titled debut album when she was just 13. JoJo’s breakout smash “Leave (Get Out)” rocketed to the top of the charts, making JoJo the youngest-ever solo artist to have a debut #1 single in the U.S. The album went on to sell over four million copies and became the singer’s first Platinum record, which she followed with a string of additional hits, most notably the Top 3 single “Too Little Too Late.” In 2016, JoJo made a heralded return to music with her first new album in 10 years, Mad Love. – debuting Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and earning her unanimous critical acclaim from the likes of TIME, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Cosmo, Entertainment Weekly and more. Most recently, JoJo re-recorded and re-released her first two albums (JoJo and The High Road) under her own label Clover Music, not wanting anyone to erase her legacy and story. She took back ownership and was able to give fans the nostalgia that they missed during her years of legal battles with her former label that prevented the albums from existing on digital platforms. She has also pushed herself outside the confines of genre, in the past year alone collaborating with artists ranging from Jacob Collier and Tank to PJ Morton, on the GRAMMY-winning R&B hit “Say So.” Now signed to Warner Records as a joint venture with her own Clover Music, JoJo is a self-made, authoritative and impassioned 29-year-old woman who is ready to write her next chapter.
