JoJo Channels ‘The Love Below’ on New Track ‘Andre’
Though JoJo says the track is influenced by ‘The Love Below,’ you wouldn’t necessarily be able to tell based on hearing it alone. There’s no rap here, just straight R&B. She compares her man to the Outkast MC because he’s a little out there, but in an awesome way. “People think he’s strange but he never try to hide it / Diamond in the rough and that’s just how I like it / Love how you go your own way,” she sings in the hook, adding, “I’m a sucker for a guy with a beautiful mind.”
‘Agápē’ (how exactly does she pronounce that?) is subbing in for ‘Jumping Trains,’ which essentially jumped off a cliff. “It didn’t feel right anymore,” JoJo said of the scrapped project. “I’ve been working on it for a long time. I’m 21 now and it didn’t feel like me.”
JoJo described her upcoming record as “something that is musical but still on the cutting edge yet still has an element of nostalgia. It makes me feel the way that hip-hop and R&B in the ’90s kind of makes me feel.” ‘Andre,’ as well as ‘We Get By,’ certainly fit in with that mold.
