New Song: JoJo – ‘Hollywood’

Published: Monday 27th Dec 2010 by Sam

Vocalist JoJo has laid low for much of 2010, however has been very busy behind the scenes. After severing ties with long-time label (amidst legal drama), the 19 year old signed with Ron Fair’s Interscope and has been working on her third studio album diligently since.

The fruits of those sessions have begun to surface, most recently in the form of ‘Hollywood’. Take a listen to the cut below…


Lyrically rich and powerfully sung, ‘Hollywood’ is a rare gem in a sea of electrocuted Pop hits. The main strength of the song lay with its ability to evoke ‘radio-friendly’ without compromising  lyrical dexterity or dumbing down production – a critique chargeable against even the most seasoned of artists.

Stirring, compelling, and to put it simply, a damn good song, ‘Hollywood’ is a home-run; one which will undoubtedly serve to remind the masses about the talent that it JoJo. Bring on the album…

    Amazing, with so many entertainers dying and falling victim to the fait of Hollywood, this subject is one that needed to be addressed for a long time, its so refreshing to hear someone talk about something different and real, well done to her the track is brilliant

    It’s really good. Idk if it’s hit material. Because you know hits have to be like paper in the air, no kinda depth.

  15. OLO December 27, 2010

    I really like it

    And I also like her and I hope that her album is good because I think she is really talented and she is one of the few who are making good rnb music but I hope she does not get slept on in 2011 because a lot of big names are retuning hmm but we will see who will support “real music” but if her album sounds like this with club banger’s I will buy =]

    *side not* I hope she has changed her image a little because I’m not into that sweet girl next door look sooo 2005 =]

    Please, stop leaked songs of JoJo! it has years to launch the third album, and to continue to leak musics in net, never more the spear.

  20. filipe December 27, 2010

    From Portugal:

    Esses vagabundos que andam a vazar as músicas da JoJo na net, são uns autênticos bois, não têm escrúpulos, não estão bem com a vida? Paciência, deixem quem quer estar bem na vida e andar com ela para a frente.
    A Jo já está há quase 4 anos para lançar o 3º álbum, se isto continuar a acontecer nunca mais o lança. Ela disse por twitter que esta é provável ser uma das melhores músicas!
    STOP STOP STOP STOP LEAKED SONGS OF JOJO PLEASE. Vocês não imaginam pelo o que o fãs estão a passar, estamos ANSIOSOS pelo lançamento do novo álbum!
    Deixem a JoJo fazer a sua vida!

  21. SCOtt December 27, 2010

    this is brilliant

  22. ~BeySoBreezy~(Soulful Roses) December 27, 2010

    YAS! My girl does it again 🙂

    With so much crap on the radio, its so refreshing when you here a song that actually means something. I dont care how far Jojo goes in the industry, I just pray that she stays true to herself and continues to give us that good quality music I love so much.

    LuBS yA JojO! <3 🙂

  23. E December 27, 2010

    Love this song. Sounds a bit Danity Kane-ish to me…

  24. BEE December 27, 2010

    JoJo = underrated.

  25. Jason Mraz Stan December 27, 2010

    JoJo = unrated vocalists, songwriter and superstar.

    Crazy that she wrote the majority of her songs from her mixtape (which was damn good!)

    And yes her other leaked song paper airplanes is sooo freakin good!

    shes only 20 and is killing it!

    shes not that popular as other non-talented chicks that are out right now but all of her albums have gone platinum…

  26. Marteen Gramatica December 27, 2010

    I think Ryan & Smitty produced it…

  27. I Am So Hollywood December 27, 2010

    Wow! That was AMAZING! her voice gives me goosebumps. The last album I brought was in 1999. I guess I will be buying my first album for the year 2000. I am definitely supporting this chica. I spend my hard earn money on real talent. Luv U JoJo!

  28. bfab_archie December 27, 2010

    2011 IS HER YEAR!!! This girl is soooo freakin talented. I had goosebumps while listenin to the song. She really poured her heart out on this song, I could feel it. Go JoJo!!!!

  29. VA STAND UP!!! December 27, 2010

    Wow! Alright JoJo! Great song! The lyrics, vocals, production subject matter everything! I always knew she had pipes and potential but I wasn’t expected this from her! Really impressive!

    I thought her appearance in Keri’s raunchy video was so random, but I had a feeling after that lil cameo she was gonna be releasing something real soon!

    I love the song, but I don’t know it will do if it is released as a single. We’ll see how it does cause with the state the industry is in now you just never know! Good luck JoJo! I’m rooting for you!

  30. Sade December 27, 2010

    I love Jojo she is so underrated, hopefully now she is with a better label she will have the major success she deserves.

  31. Bri December 27, 2010

    I love this new Jojo song!! I love her so much!!!

  32. LG3 December 27, 2010

    Love JoJo she is very much underated I think she just needs to take notes from Keri Hilson and step up her promotion and appearance game , revamp her image and she could be up there with the top females in the game, she’s only 19 I think her time will come….

  33. RealMusic December 28, 2010

    This what I’mtalkin bout. She slayed

  34. Kyle December 28, 2010

    This is pretty neat!!>.. :)..

  35. carlitos December 29, 2010

    @ KENEEF: Actually JoJo is no longer with Blackground Records.

  36. FUTURESTARdelux December 31, 2010

    OH MY GOD SHE KILLED IT AGAIN!!!!! As if dropping a mixtape that shits on most current b****** albums was’t enough JoJo just had to come back and snatch the survivors wigs too lol
    Her label had seriously better promote the f*** outta her because she is an AMAZING singer, has fantastic music and is looking hot these too that’s all the ingredients for a successful singer PLUSS a great voice! *side eye at those basic b*******

    This song is wonderful, like somebody else said i felt that she was poring her heart out on this track and with all the fuckery she’s been put through i believe it. I have her second album which is amazing and “All i want is everything” is shaping upto be even better. As much as i love hearing ner music from her they need to get there s*** on lock because leaks will damage the project. 2011 JoJo strikes back.
