JoJo Covers Bruno Mars’ ‘Grenade’

Published: Friday 28th Oct 2011 by David

Days ago, footage of JoJo covering Rihanna‘s ‘What’s My Name‘  cemented her status as one of Pop’s more gifted singers.

Now, the belter has delivered a passionate rendition of Bruno Mars‘ ‘Grenade‘ at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston in support of cancer research.

Watch her in action below…


Without a doubt, performances like this will surely raise the anticipation surrounding her upcoming album ‘Jumping Trains’.

Blessed with such a distinct tone and range , flaunted heavily on her number ‘Disaster’, let’s hope she was telling the truth when she averred that fans can expect an eclectic sound from the project.

For once again, Ms ‘Marvin’s Room‘ has proved that her voice is truly a universal affair.

Bring on the album!

    JoJo is so Underrated. I love Disaster, but I love her soulful sound a lot better.

  2. Steffon October 28, 2011

    I’m gonna need for this b**** to sing her own songs.

    Why does this blog love jojo so much??

    @Steffon She does sing her own songs. I don’t know why you getting so mad over her covering a damn song smh… She did one cover and the other two or three songs were hers.

    I give up man!I give up!If this girl can make me enjoy a song that I’ve gone off big time since February, then there’s pretty much nothing she can’t slay… *bows down* The belting, the little runs, everything was amazing!!

    @ALI 💡 Maybe it’s because she’s brilliant…Or do you think this isn’t enough of a reason? 😎

    She KILT that s***… I mean she left took it to its grave and buried it in a spot where no one can touch… She is such an amazing vocalist too bad her single disaster dont show this. She definitely needs to go back to the more soulful pop. I am a jojo fan HARDCORE but I am just not feeling anything she is doing this era except her covers but I still wish her well!

    I think every song she sings is soulful. She gotta soulful voice so it comes through on all her records including Disaster which I LOVE!

    @Steffon – every concert I’ve been to, the singer or band does a cover song. Coldplay just did Rihanna We Found Love at their live acoustic show. It’s not just Jojo, that’s what makes going to their shows special. The good ones give you something different all the time.

    rihannas loud sold more copies than 4 worldwide this past week! and we found love is #1 in the world! who run the world? only girl in the world !!! What’s sad is that with all these videos beyonces been putting out(in such a short amount of time) you would think she should be doing better! Whig begs the question, what is beyonce doing wrong???

    “I’m gonna need for this b**** to sing her own songs.”

    “Im so tired of seeing this girl face everytime I come to this site….about her “covering” someone.”

    i can’t. AMEN

  13. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) October 28, 2011

    Those comments about the covers…SMH

    Yeah, I’m tired of seeing JoJo slaying those songs.I’ve had enough of her giving flawless performances of other people’s hits…I am just soooo frustrated that she is not like other artists who only sing one song (their single) in every appearance… 🙄 Yeah, I’m sick and tired of that mess. 😆 😆

    I’ve heard people complain about a lot of things, but complaining about an artist doing covers??If anything, you should start complaining about the fact that there are some songs that JoJo can sing better than the artist that sung them first, which is why her covers get so much love and attention.

    i love jojo ! she always sings her little heart out.

  15. Casual October 28, 2011

    Didn’t think I would like it, but I did. And she sang this in Bruno Mars’ original key and octave, not so hard for a woman (but epic for a man), but still adding some of the poignancy to the performance.

    lmao 2 the pissy ones mad that jojo slays their faves own work! take it as a compliment,she is no different from you singing one of your faves song in the shower except she is doing it at a live show.

  17. Army Of Queen /.\ (Aaliyah) & Queen Bee (Lil Kim) >>>>>>>> Your Fave ! October 28, 2011

    JoJo Is VERY UNDERRATED (Like Aaliyah) ! But After Listening To her Music I Have Fell In LOVE ! 🙂 She just CONTINUES to SLAY Her COVERS ! Also Because She Sees MY FAVE Aaliyah As Inspiration & Feels That They Are Connected/Similar

    I’ve heard others try to cover Bruno’s song and failed miserably but JoJo did a fine job!
