Rap-Up TV: JoJo Reveals Her Top 5 Albums of 2011

Which artists were getting lots of play on JoJo’s iPod this year? The pop star shares her five favorite albums of 2011 including a dynamic duo, an “odd” newcomer, pop queen, Drake (“I love it when he sings. He really creates an atmosphere”), and Beyoncé.

“I think it was the best vocal performance of this year, especially by a female,” JoJo told Rap-Up TV of B’s 4 while on set of her Clearasil PerfectaWash commercial. “I don’t think anyone’s topping Beyoncé.”

Find out who landed a spot on JoJo’s list.

    I’ve Told You Before. Beyonce’s 4 isn’t about Chart Topping It’s About REAL Music! I love you Adele, but Boo Bey killed, murdered the art of music with 4!!!

    @Lauryn, I agree with u as far as ’4′ being an AMAZING album BUT it is no where near as EXTRAORDINARY as Adele’s ’21′……every track is simply amazinh whereas (for me) ‘Run the world’ completely messes up the album, especially when its on shuffle. Ad21 > 4

    @baya, 1 song ruins the greatness of an album ? Smh .

    @baya, You guys say Adele’s “21″ is great because of sales. “19″ is just as good as 21 but you don’t hear anyone saying that album is extraordinary, Adele is boring her vocals, and melody are the same on every song which is blah blah blah. Lovesong definitely ruins her album 21<4.

    she has a nice speaking voice but what exactly does she do? i mean professionally. all i heard from her was a remix of other artists songs.

    @Frank, She’s a singer. Search her song “Too Little Too Late.” She has two albums and a mixtape already out. First album when she was 13, second when she was 15-16, mixtape when she was 18-19, her third album drops next year.

    @chloe, I couldn’t agree more!
    she’s such a talented girl and deserves all the success *-*
    can’t wait too see her new material
    I’ve been a fan since she came out back in 2004
    JoJo has a lot of fans over here in Brazil and her famous ‘Too Little Too Late’ is still like a anthem among the teens and young adults :)

    she was doing good until she said gaga. that album is garbage all the songs sounds the same.

    [Reply]

    Ok... Reply:

    @xedos, I was JUST about to say that. Don’t know WHY she even would mention lady gaga.

    [Reply]

    baya Reply:

    @Ok…, GaGa’s album is FAR from garbage. There are some songs that i dont like but to call the album garbage is ludicrous. Its sold 8mil+ worldwide, 2nd behind Adele with 12mil+. Its all about what your taste is. “Edge of Glory” is the standout track and one of the best pop songs released this year imo.

    I know ppl are going to say “everything isnt about sales” which is true but you CANNOT call an album that has sold 8mil ww garbage

    @baya, No darling, Gaga’s sold 5.3 million and Adele’s 14.3 million.

    GaGa’s Album Was Great.. Musically and Vocally

    @ROMANRELOADED, I agree. What Jojo said about it was true as well. It’s not your typical pop album and thank God for that.

    1. David Guetta – Nothing But The Beat
    2. Lady GaGa – Born This Way
    3. Britney Spears – Femme Fatale
    4. Beyoncé – 4
    5. Taio Cruz – TY.O

    “4″ was amazing, hands down! It was her least commercial sounding album and I personally think that’s what made it better. “Start Over” and “I Care” are my favorites.

    Sorry no Rihanna and with all her #1 songs & sales. lol. You did great JoJo

    [Reply]

    Fanny Reply:

    @4, lyrics is more important than sounds :) Rihanna has more #1 songs but they are not written by herself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [Reply]

    Mi Reply:

    @4, contrary to what the hype and the media machine makes you think, Rihanna’s albums don’t sell very well in the U.S. Her biggest 1st week sales ever in the history of her career was 207,000 and her total album sells don’t compare to the rest of the heavy hitters. She sells singles so she is always going to live and die by her latest sound/song. She’s been doing well so far & when she doesn’t, her label spends enough money to shove her music down our throats. It will be interesting to see how long it will last.

    “4″ is good but it is merely a rehash of other work. Adele’s album out classes everything. It is a masterpiece. Simply amazing. Gaga had some amazing stuff on her album as well. JoJo is a Beyonce stan, Beyonce is a good singer but she is hyping her way up…

    [Reply]

    Redchainsaw Reply:

    @TheMan, She isn’t hyping her up,she’s simply stating that Beyonce’s vocal ability isn’t being touched by any of her pairs

    KillBill Reply:

    @TheMan, Just like your hyping Adele way up. Be for real “21″ is only considered the best because of the album sales, other than musicality it lacks fun, rhythm, her vocals are weak and the same on every song. Beyonce “4″ vocals are at it’s best and it is the best vocal album of the year.

    [Reply]

    Cranberry Reply:

    @KillBill, are you serious? o_o Adele is miles better than Beyonce vocally. You must be a child. In fact, in know you are. An album doesn’t have to be “fun” or have “rhythm” (wtf is that?) to be good.

    [Reply]

    gee Reply:

    @Cranberry, nah! adele can sing for sure dont get me wrong, but beyonce can sing vocally, wayyyyy much better, adele’s is fresh, ofcourse everybody is gonna think shes awesome and stuff like that. Beyonce is a legend, she has range, emotion, and power on her voice, adele, has a one tone voice.. thank you!

    Adele is mounds and leaps ahead of Beyonce vocally. Beyonce gets shouty in her upper range. Just because you scream in the upper register doesn’t mean that you have range. Beyonce’s voice is very basic. Adele’s voice is far more polished than Beyonce, it’s more soulful, more emotive and much more distinct. Adele >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Beyonce period….

    @TheMan, Can she lasts at the top for 15 years ? I’m done @ shouty.

    gee Reply:

    @TheMan, well, lets see how adele shouts and makes ehr voice sings, every artist has there way of singing, adele, is blah, waht makes her interesting is her heartbreaking love songs, it gets boring, her voice is one toned. her music are slow, she has barely no emotion when she sings. adele <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<beyonce

    @TheMan, Too bad Adele prefers cigarettes and alcohol over her voice. Bey trumps her in discipline and range.

  22. TheMan

    There are many artists that have eclipsed her vocally. She’s speaking from a stan point of view…

    @TheMan, LMAO!! Like who? She goes hard with the best of them. You seem like a major hater. You can say whatever you want about this girl but you can’t say she isn’t one of the best vocalist out there.
