“I love house music. It’s really been speaking to me in the past few years,” JoJo reveals in an exclusive Rap-Up interview. “I grew up listening to R&B and hip-hop and stuff. I wanted to find soul in another place.”
She credits artists like CeCe Peniston, Disclosure, and MNEK as influences for the upcoming album she knows fans have been anticipating for a long time. “I don’t know if a more loyal fan base exists. It’s unbelievable, it’s unusual,” she said.
“I’m so thankful. I can’t express that enough ’cause it really kept me going. I just want to impress them and make them happy, and I want them to love it because they have been everything for me.”
