JoJo will join Joe Jonas and Jay Sean on their 19-city North American concert tour this fall. The tour will kick off September 6th in the pop star’s hometown of Boston, the same day her new single ‘Disaster’ will be available at all digital retailers. ‘Disaster’, written by JoJo and Gino Barletta and produced by Mario Marchetti, is the first single off her long awaited and long delayed third album ‘Jumping Trains’, which will be released in early 2012 on Blackground-Interscope/Streamline.

JoJo is reacting to the leak of a new song to her Twitter followers (@JoJoistheway). The Boston, Massachusetts pop singer is finally preparing to release her third album ‘Jumping Trains’ on Interscope Records, but it’s unclear if the song that found its way onto the internet will be included on the record. JoJo writes:
The latest in a series of RIDICULOUS LEAKS is “Limbo”. Produced by Sham & Motesart. We work hard & we LOVE what we do. Please respect music.
Offering a female perspective on the drunk dial, JoJo flips the lyrics on Drake’s single ‘Marvin’s Room’ with a sultry remix of her own. Listen to JoJo’s ‘Marvin’s Room (Can’t Do Better)’ via YouTube below.
JoJo is back with her new single ‘The Other Chick’, produced by Oak (Nicki Minaj), from her forthcoming third studio album ‘Jumping Trains’, due out this fall on Blackground/Interscope. Listen to a stream of ‘The Other Chick’ at YouTube.

JoJo checked in with her Twitter followers (@JoJoistheway) on Friday (December 17), talking about being unattached. The 19-year-old, prepping to finally release her third album ‘All I Want Is Everything’ next year, tells readers:
I LOVE being single. Having someone to love and love you back is BEAUTIFUL. No doubt. But at this time in my life, I enjoy my independence, privacy, and space. I have the chance to make mistakes, learn my likes and dislikes, so when the time comes to settle down, there will be no question as to “Am I rushing into this? Am i doing the right thing?” While I focus on myself and my career, I am learning to embrace The Single Woman that I am. Loving my friends, my family, and my work associates. Exploring the world with my own two eyes, on my terms.
JoJo checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@jojoonline) on Tuesday (September 7), discussing the release of her free mixtape ‘Can’t Take That Away From Me’. The 19-year-old writes:
I’m so thrilled to present new music to you! As confused as I am about the current situation with the actual album, I can only imagine how confused you must be too. I often speak vaguely about what’s going on because I want to take the high road and not throw anyone under the bus. As tempting as it is to go public with every single detail, I’m trying to stay professional. But, my fans have been waiting way too long and at the end of the day- I’m a singer! A songwriter! An artist! It pains me not to be sharing what I love with those who want to receive it. It’s a really crazy thing when your career, your livelihood, and the thing you love the most is out of your hands. In releasing this mixtape, I’m affirming that even though some have tried they CANT TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME. What is THAT? My voice, my spirit, my drive, my dreams. As you listen to these songs, I hope that they make your head nod, your mind tick, your emotions move, your belly laugh, and maybe elicit a “stanky face” or something ;) Lol. ….
JoJo spoke with Rap-Up TV to offer an update on her long delayed new album ‘All I Want Is Everything’, who she’s been in the studio with lately, and whether the album will get released by year’s end. “The album is pretty eclectic, there is certainly more energy to it that my other two albums,” the 19-year-old said. “It’s very transparent, very honest.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.
JoJo checked in with her Twitter followers (@JoJoistheway) Saturday evening, revealing that she was involved in an automobile accident and she had lost her voice and has been ordered by her doctor to rest her vocals. JoJo writes:
Got into a four car accident earlier. I thank God that no one was injured and everyone was cooperative and not mean to each other. First accident I was ever involved in. Also, doctor still has me on vocal rest until next week. I’ll be attending event tonight but not performing. I’m so sorry. I feel SO bad about it, but need to focus on the long term and recovery of my voice. Dont want 2 overdo it! :/
JoJo checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@jojoonline) on Monday (February 22) after posting a new song on her player. The Boston pop singer writes:
Just posted a song called “Wait a Minute (For Your Love)” I wrote with Jordan Gatsby a while ago that I wanted to share. It’s just a record that I love, which probably won’t make the album (since this doesn’t at all fit the direction…lol) but still represents a genre of music that inspires me. Making this was so much fun. We recorded it at this ill studio in Boston called Sanctum Sound and had some fantastic musicians come in and sprinkle their gifts upon it.
Still recording for the album. Slow and steady wins the race. I’m doing all that I can to get new material out asap.
Love you oodles
Thank you for you support and I can’t wait to see you all again soon…
x’s and o’s
