JoJo’s long-awaited third studio album was supposed to drop in 2012, but now has been pushed to 2013. Originally, the album was titled All I Want Is Everything when it was scheduled to be released in 2010, then renamed to Jumping Trains when it had a 2012 release date in mind. So far, the followup to 2006’s The High Road has no title. Thankfully, JoJo is releasing a mixtape to tide over her fans until her much delayed album finally hits the light of day.
Agape is scheduled to come out on December 20 and is described as a “labor of love from the heart without limits or boundaries.” Produced by The Backpack Kids (Austin Brown, Scott Bruzenak and Tommy Parker), the mixtape’s first single, “We Get By“, is a soulful tune that allows the 21-year-old’s raw vocals to shine.
At first listen, I already fell in love with it and reminds my why I became a fan in the first place. No doubt, it’s my favorite new track she’s released in awhile. It’s funky, refreshing and has a great backbeat. I can’t wait to hear what else JoJo has in store for us with Agape.
What do you think of the track? Do you think JoJo is headed in the right direction with her new grown-up sound? What’s your favorite track from her? Sound off below.
