JoJo recently spoke with Idolator in a Q&A, where the 20-year-old “veteran” pop singer talked about her upcoming third album ‘Jumping Trains’, touring with Joe Jonas, releasing the ‘Can’t Take That Away From Me’ mixtape last year, international promo plans, how her songwriting has evolved, growing up idolizing Michael Jackson, and her love for jazz.
“Oh my god, I would faint at the thought of it — but faint from excitement,” JoJo said about the prospects of recording a few jazz songs. “I love jazz! Yes, I would love to do that. I listen to jazz all the time. Jill Scott is one of my favorite artists. Not that she’s a jazz singer, but there’s a lot of jazz influence. She recorded this cover of ‘Good Morning Heartache’, which, there’s a small saxophone solo at the beginning, and I listen to that every day. Jazz makes me feel so many different ways.”
