In addition, “F*** Apologies (Feat.

Both videos and much more can be found now on JoJo’s official YouTube channel.

JoJo – who spent her summer on a major North American tour alongside Fifth Harmony – celebrated the release of “MAD LOVE.” with a live performance of “No Apologies” (the clean version of “F*** Apologies”) on NBC’s TODAY. The pop superstar also rocked MTV’s Wonderland with a stellar set highlighted by a version of 2004’s “Leave (Get Out)” as well as a performance of “No Apologies” alongside the one and only Wiz Khalifa. To celebrate the holiday season, JoJo joined Boyz II Men for a stunning performance of “Let It Snow” as well as a solo performance of holiday favorite “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” on the “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” which aired on ABC Thanksgiving day. What’s more, JoJo was prominently featured on New York City’s acclaimed 7-story NASDAQ Tower in Time Square over the holiday weekend in celebration of the release of “MAD LOVE.” and today’s tour announcement (see attached). Upcoming appearances include a performance on November 30th at the 2016 Keep The Promise Concert in commemoration of World Aids Day alongside Patti Labelle and Common.  JoJo is also part of the AT&T AUDIENCE Network ® concert series which airs on DIRECTV early next year.

 

JoJo’s first new album since 2006, “MAD LOVE.” has earned luminous media attention, spanning E! News and Entertainment Tonight to VogueMTV.com, and Elle, which praised the album’s “wide stylistic influences, ranging from slow-strutting electro-pop in Alessia Cara collaboration ‘I Can Only’ to minor-key R&B in ‘Honest’ and a sugary Motown-toasting title track.” Pitchforkdescribes the album as “sincere progressions, bolstered by her vocal talent and honest approach to storytelling.”  “A bona fide comeback,” raved Idolator, “JoJo is finally at a place where her talent and life experiences are working hand-in-hand.” “(JoJo’s) first proper album in 10 years is here in all its triumphant, soulful glory,” noted NYLON, “’MAD LOVE.” is a long time in the making, but man, was it worth the wait. Determination truly pays off.” JoJo turns “tales of love, friendship, and family into one bold coming-of-age statement,” declared Entertainment Weekly, “She’s one of her generation’s finest vocalists. Period.” JoJo has always been extremely passionate and outspoken about body image & the importance of self-confidence. She recently penned an inspiring essay about these topics for TIME Magazine’s MOTTO. Read it here: http://motto.time.com/4499425/jojo-body-image/.
