New Music: JoJo – ‘In the Dark’

The wait is over. Four years after the release of her sophomore album The High Road, JoJo makes her much-awaited return to music. Not even label drama can stop the 19-year-old songstress from shining bright on “In the Dark,” the first offering from her mixtape Can’t Take That Away From Me, premiering September 7 exclusively on Rap-Up.com.

“I think ‘In the Dark’ is different than anything people have heard from me before,” JoJo says of the song, which was produced by Jordan Gatsby and co-written by JoJo and Gatsby. “It’s a very sensual record and there’s an undertone of sadness to it.”

The track’s experimental sound does not necessarily reflect the material on her upcoming third studio album All I Want Is Everything. Instead, it’s a thank you to her loyal fans who’ve stuck by her throughout the years.

“In the Dark” Lyrics

Verse 1
This ain’t the first or last time
We’ll meet up this late at night
To let our fate intertwine
Casually I’d rather be
Detach from all tragedy
This don’t need to be defined

Pre-Chorus
And I know that it’s wrong
I do I do
Baby keep holding on
I do I do
Yeah, I know that it’s wrong
I do
When the sun comes up, I’ll be gone

Chorus
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

Verse 2
Try to stay desensitized
Keep my feelings out of mind
My body won’t be denied
Never took this road before
Love was always at the core
Of anyone I’ve been with before

Pre-Chorus
And I know that it’s wrong
I do I do
Baby keep holding on
I do
Yeah, I know that it’s wrong
I do
When the sun comes up, I’ll be gone
Chorus
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

Bridge
Shadows across your face
Your lips a familiar taste
Stay focused, I tried
Can’t get this out of my mind
I want more than what this is
Whatever we’re calling this
The truth just breaks my heart

Chorus (x2)
I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark

I only know him in the dark
I only know him in the dark
