JoJo fans can finally breathe easy. After a nearly five-year hiatus, label setbacks, and a mixtape (Can’t Take That Away From Me), the 20-year-old songbird makes her official return to music with “The Other Chick,” the first single from her third album Jumping Trains (Interscope).
The Boston-bred vocalist sheds her youthful image of the past, growing up right before our eyes on the mid-tempo jam, where she discovers that she is the side chick. Starting out subtle, the track increases with intensity as she powers through the chorus. “Come to find out, that I’m the other chick/ And you never loved me/ She was so over me,” she sings. But instead of acting out in anger, she carries on with a laugh.
Listen as JoJo ushers in the next chapter of her career.
