JoJo Gets Real About Relationships on "Sabotage" feat. CHIKA
Following the release of “Joanna,” praised as “beautiful, touching fan-service done right” (GQ) and “brutally honest” (Vulture), today JoJo drops the soulful, hip-hop-infused new track “Sabotage,” featuring a guest verse by fellow Warner Records artist CHIKA. Listen to “Sabotage” HERE, watch the lyric video HERE, and look out for the official video coming soon.
“A lot of people self-sabotage… I tend to do it in romantic relationships. And I think most of it roots to fear - fear of being inadequate, fear of getting hurt, fear of rejection, fear of not measuring up... This song is about asking a lot of questions, dealing with shame and embarrassment, and really just owning up to certain patterns.”
The new tracks are JoJo’s first new music since signing with Warner Records earlier this year through a joint venture with her own Clover Music, and preview the album to come in 2020. Together with producers Doc McKinney [The Weeknd, Santigold] and Lido [Halsey, Chance The Rapper], JoJo has honed together an upcoming body of work centered around her new-found confidence – both musically and emotionally. There’s a lightness, a joy, a sense of satisfaction: JoJo doesn’t want to avoid the past, but it’s time to open the next chapter.
