JoJo’s New Single And Album Announcement Signal A Major Comeback
JoJo’s making a comeback, and it’s better than we could have ever imagined. The pop singer hasn’t released a new album in 10 years, and aside from two mixtapes and a few EPs, the world has been deprived of new music from her. JoJo’s new single and album announcement signal that amazing things are coming for those who have missed her since the early 2000s.
She dropped “Fuck Apologies,” which features Wiz Khalifa, on iTunes and Spotify, and it’s already been deemed the #SorryNotSorry anthem everyone needed. “What you want from me, I would say I’m sorry if I really meant it/ Fuck apologies, I would say I’m sorry if I really meant it/ I’m not perfect, I got pride/ That’s not what it is this time, so fuck apologies, I would say I’m sorry if I really meant it,” she sings in the new song.
Women in general say “sorry” too much, even when they’ve done absolutely nothing wrong and the other person should in fact be the one apologizing, so it’s about damn time we had a song we can belt out to remind ourselves that we don’t always have to apologize. JoJo explains it perfectly in the song, singing: “And honestly I was just about to pick up the phone/ And then I realized that I didn’t do nothing wrong/ You would even tell two lies to prove that you were right/ Usually I’d go on and take the blame but not this time, not this time.”
On top of encouraging women to fuck saying “sorry,” the single is also a breakup song (is there really any other kind?) that’s perfect for crying over a pint of ice cream while trying to get over an ex. JoJo will help you through it.
We can expect more songs like “Fuck Apologies” on the album she’s releasing Oct. 14. She announced the release of Mad Love on Instagram Wednesday, posting a picture of a pregnancy test with “10.14.16” where there should be a line dictating whether or not she’s going to be a parent. The pregnancy test also has a big “ML” in the corner to signify the name of the album. There was no caption, which understandably led to some preemptive freak outs about JoJo’s nonexistent baby, but people eventually caught on.
Watch the “Fuck Apologies” trailer to listen to the whole song and bask in the full glory of JoJo’s amazingness.
Needless to say, JoJo’s back.
