JoJo, ‘Disaster’ – Song Review

Now is not a good time to be JoJo‘s significant other, because she sings on a new song that her failing relationship is so bad that it’s a ‘Disaster.’

A somber acoustic guitar sets the tone early on as JoJo sings about a love that was both amazing and frustrating. JoJo’s mood never brightens, but the music does, with an electric guitar that appears alongside her soaring chorus:

Cause the walls burned up and our love fell down / And it turned into whatever, now we’re saying never / Feel the fire cause it’s all around / And it’s burning for forever and always / We gotta let it go, be on our way / Lookin’ for another day, cuz it ain’t the same, my baby / Watch it all fall to the ground / No happy ever after, just disaster.

JoJo doesn’t appear to be jumping on the synthpop bandwagon like so many other pop stars, but the flipside of that independence is that her music doesn’t necessarily sound current. ‘Disaster’ has the same basic pop-rock feel of JoJo’s last big hit, 2006’s ‘Too Little Too Late.’ We’d like to see a little more artistic growth in five years, although JoJo is still just 20 years old, so she has plenty of time to figure out where she wants to take her sound as an adult.

‘Disaster’ will appear on JoJo’s upcoming album ‘Jumping Trains,’ which is also expected to include ‘Guardian Angel‘ and ‘The Other Chick.’
