JoJo is officially back. The mid-2000s R&B darling made her grand return on Thursday afternoon, dropping three new singles for the first time in years.
The 24-year-old singer, who rose to fame with hits like “Leave (Get Out)” and “Baby It’s You,” surprised fans with the early debut of her so-called “Tringle,” or the three-single release that was originally expected to hit airwaves Friday. JoJo has been teasing the project via Twitter in recent weeks and finally made “Say Love,” “Save My Soul,” and “When Love Hurts” available to fans.
The “Too Little Too Late” singer proves that she still has her impressive pipes with the release. She brings power and soul to her singles, hitting a broad range as she sings about a soured relationship and love lost.
JoJo finally got back into the studio to record her new music after a dramatic battle with her label, Blackground Records. She released her first two albums, 2004’s JoJo and 2006’s The High Road with the company, but her contract kept from leaving after her second record. JoJo, who first signed her record deal when she was just 12 years old, broke free of the relationship and signed with Atlantic last year.
Jojo’s third album is expected to hit stores about nine years after releasing The High Road. In the years since, she’s released two mixtapes and an EP, and has been vocal about her desire for a new chapter in her music career.
