JoJo Announces Partnership with Interscope Records

 

Former teen sensation JoJo is ready to take her career to the next level. After signing with Atlantic Records in 2014, JoJo has found a new home. The singer has teamed with Interscope Records for the launch of her new imprint Clover Music. She announced the exciting news on Instagram.

“I’m reunited with [Aaron Bay-Schuck], my original A&R at Atlantic, who was instrumental in signing me there,” JoJo explained. “One of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my career was leave the Atlantic family. It was a decision I seriously struggled with, but felt I owed it to myself to fulfill one of my ultimate goals, which was ownership.”

JoJo started her career with Blackground Records. After being stuck on the label for many years (without releasing official music), the singer finally was able to break away from her contract in 2013. Following her new deal with Atlantic, JoJo released her third studio album, Mad Love, in 2016.

Today, I am SO SO SO excited to announce my new imprint and joint venture, CLOVER MUSIC with Interscope Records!!! 🍀 I'm reunited with @bayschuck, my original A&R at Atlantic, who was instrumental in signing me there… One of the hardest things I've had to do in my career was leave the Atlantic family. It was a decision I seriously struggled with, but felt I owed it to myself to fulfill one of my ultimate goals, which was ownership. At 13 years old, I was a brand new naive fetus of an artist trying to make a name for myself. At 18, after being blessed with two successful albums, I found myself having to fight for freedom and the opportunity to release music. It took six long tumultuous years but we did it. Thank YOU for sticking by me through thick and thin and showing me MAD LOVE!! 😘🤗❤️ Thank you @Interscope and Aaron for trusting this little Mass girl with big dreams. Now let's make something great 😊 🍀🍀🍀🎶💚🎶💚🎶 📸by @angelokritikos

Keyshia Cole Announces ‘Ride’ as Next Single

Without an official radio impact date, Keyshia Cole teases Kamiayah-assisted track as her new single from 11:11 Reset.

In a series of Instagram posts, the “I Ain’t Thru” songstress shared snippets of the Drumma Boy produced track, captioning “Coming next 🔥🔥.”

The wavy track, sampling Tupac Shakur’s “Hail Mary,” finds the Oakland pair sittin’ on ready and ready to pull up on anyone who gets out of line. “One hundred, nothing fake about me / She better watch what she say about me, ” claps Keysh.

Lyricist Kamiyah is mean with her delivery, too. “I got some bitches outside that’ll ride for me / No lie, two times, they’ll die for me,” spits the rising rapper.

11:11 Reset is available digitally and in stores now.

Crank up “Ride,” and remind haters they don’t want no problems.
