    Her voice is much more powerful than Ariana’s.

    great talent, but i don’t understand her use. like how is she booking all of these performances and deals, but album is not certified, has no hit single or massive fan base. where on God green Earth do they do that at? a talented artist gets so much push and yet she has no success and they keep pushing her like she was doing britney spears “BOMT” numbers or something. her team is on point, but I’m not understanding the lack of success that is coming from the huge push

      Totally agree she has ahd little success. She has no singles that have charted in the top 40 her album probably sold 100,000 at most. Scooter Braun her manager really likes her and pushes the hell out of her like she’s actually a star. It’s obvious people don’t care about her though. Even her new song she just relesed is 63 on itunes. sometimes talent isn’t enough.

      Her music is very boring and she doesn’t really have a gimmick to capture the publics attention. She can sing her curly haired ĀŠŠ off but you need more….unfortunately.

    The problem is.
    You can have a voice. But you CAN’T be unique. there is no signature sound, no originality.
    All these basic b****** these days are copies of mimi, xtina, bey’s music. ITS NOT GONNA WORK!
    As much as I hate gaga, but she is the best performer of her generation. WAY better that rihanna katy nicki taylor. Ariana has a better voice, but she is BASIC AF.
    I cannot connect with these bitchs tbh. NEXT

      You’re speaking as if Jojo is slaying right now. Her singles have made no impact and people dont care about her comeback.

    She should keep releasing singles from this album. She should be over a hundred k also. She’s beautiful & very talented. All she needs is that one breakout song. She’s done alright for not having a huge single.
