Exactly what is a “stanky face”, JoJo?
Earlier this year, as I was rambling about being a sober nutcase, I began my search for new material from JoJo. It led to a bit of campaigning on my part, hoping someone, anyone would fill us fans in on what was going on in JoJo-ville. But basically, I think I speak for all of JoJo’s supporters when I say, we really just wanted the music and stat!
The day has finally arrived, my friends.
Whatever drama/barricade used to postpone new material from the 19-year-old seems to be disolving, with new music finally revealing itself in the just-released Canâ€™t Take That Away From Me mixtape. Production includes giants: Chad Hugo of The Neptunes, Kenna, Neff-U, Oak, Beau Dozier, and Jordan Gatsby, who produced the lead track In the Dark.
She told Rap-Up.Com that although the mixtape explores new territory that it doesn’t necessarily determine the sound on her upcoming album, All I Want Is Everything.
In a blog post discussing the mixtape JoJo wrote: â€œIn releasing this mixtape, Iâ€™m affirming that even though some have tried they CANâ€™T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME. What is THAT? My voice, my spirit, my drive, my dreams. As you listen to these songs, I hope that they make your head nod, your mind tick, your emotions move, your belly laugh, and maybe elicit a â€™stanky faceâ€™ or something Lol.â€
