Joanna Noelle Levesque, aka JoJo, is an American singer, songwriter and actress from Brattleboro, Vermont. JoJo is one of those singers who found success as a teen; she was already a pop sensation when she was just 13 when she released her debut single "Leave (Get Out)" in 2004.
JoJo waited almost four years to release her first album despite the huge success with her debut single. The 30-year-old singer came out with her sophomore album "The High Road" in 2008. Things were going great for the singer, but before she could release her third L.P., she started facing problems with the record label she was working with.
The legal battle with her former record label almost ended her career as it lasted for long seven years; however, Atlantic Records came to the rescue. JoJo released her album "Mad Love" with the records, and she hasn't looked back since. In 2016, talking with the "Rolling Stone," JoJo said,
"I got on a cycle of not loving myself and not believing that I really had a future. My only hope is that he’s looking down [JoJo's late father], thinking, 'Oh, my God, my daughter is doing it now.' Our connection was always about music."
"It's nerve-racking but very, very exciting. I'm really grateful to be able to move on with my life and career and get a chance that a lot of people who have been through similar things wouldn't get. I'm taking it day by day and allowing my fans to give me the life that they give me. I'm having fun with it."
