New Song: JoJo – ‘Sexy To Me’

Published: Tuesday 28th Feb 2012 by Sam

Since bursting onto the scene 8 years ago, JoJo has been hailed as having a voice well beyond her years.

However, now 21, the Boston native is keen to embrace her young womanhood on forthcoming album ‘Jumping Trains’. Case, point the set’s new promo single ‘Sexy To Me’.

Produced by Danja, the titillating cut (which had been floating around in demo form for some time), ushers in a much more risqué JoJo.

Get familiar with her below…

With lead single ‘Disaster’ experiencing a slow, yet steady, yet still slow ascend, we wholly commend the commissioning of ‘Sexy’ as a buzz amplifier.

The solid midtempo re-connects Jo with the ‘gritty Urban’ she so skillfully excelled with on 2006 effort ‘The High Road’ (see: ‘Anything’, ‘The Way You Do Me’). However, it’s for this exact reason that ‘Sexy’ should serve as nothing more than an album track.

By no means ‘bad’, the song presents quite the conundrum in that it’s solid (and moreover introduces her sexuality the “right” way), however it’s simply at odds with the flavour of Pop and Pop Urban dominating the charts at present. And with chartings being of paramount importance to any artists’ longevity, Jo – to put it simply – needs a hit. Something, given the current climate, we’re not sure this will be allowed to be.

Still, we believe in Ms. Levesque’s talent and are confident that it will be hailed both critically and commercially in due course.

To aid that cause, we’d love to see her dabble in a sound similar to the Urban/Pop she and Timbaland served up with ‘Lose Control’:

Anyway, enough of my babbling. ‘Sexy To Me’…

  2. MK February 28, 2012

  3. NoNo February 28, 2012

    This is f****** hot.

  4. iateezy February 28, 2012

    sounds hot but the single cover….no

  5. Carl Neufville February 28, 2012

    🙁 It sounds like she’s trynna jump in someone else’s lane.

  6. NoNo February 28, 2012

    This review most certainly isn’t hot, however. This song has absolutely nothing in common with her old music – it’s a completely new urban-ish electropop direction reminiscent of Britney’s Blackout.

    I agree that she needs to make music more similar to Losing Control though.

  7. KNUCK February 28, 2012

    Yeah it sounds like Britney, and also Ciara Fantasy Ride era ( see “I’m On”).. but I liked it!

    Its dated.

  9. February 28, 2012

    JoJo needs her own sound. She is starting to sound like everyone else. :/

  10. Galuda February 28, 2012

    Sounds really dated to me. Britney and Keri and them done did this already years ago.

  11. Sean February 28, 2012

    reminds me of Xtina.

  12. nate February 28, 2012

    I wonder why her label is having such a hard time finding her great material. She’s a young white girl who can actually sing. Hook her up with Rhianna and Katy’s people and give her some hits already. This dated ish is not a good look. Some big pop hits mixed with a few soulful ballads similar to the ones on her mixtapes(“Boy Without a Heart”) would be a good album.

  13. Galuda February 28, 2012

    Apparently this song is just being released to support her Clearasil PerfectaWash campaign….

  14. Ja’mila Dior February 28, 2012

  15. Mikey February 28, 2012

  16. aishaaguilerakeys February 28, 2012

    DANJA

    Sunlight I’ma be crazy
    Only the music can save me

    You mad today, tomorrow you gon’ hate me
    I’m not myself tonight
    Got a water bottle full of somethin’ else tonight
    It’s gon be, alright
    (?) sooner i will cut out these lights. (?)

    ‘Cause the beat came on, the ground just shook
    And it feels so good, it feels so good.
    No matter what you think, it’s understood
    Get it, got it, good.
    When I do my thing, they all go look
    And it feels so good, it feels so good.
    If you call my phone, it’s off the hook
    Do ya get it, got it, good.

    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)
    You keep doin’ you tonight, cause i’m doing me (oh yeah)
    We gon rock the party like we up in Ibiza (yeah)
    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)

    Wanna be mad, well OK-K
    I’ll be in the booth with DJ
    Free shots all around, it’s my b-day
    Get a little “He-hee!” like MJ

    ‘Cause the beat came on, the ground just shook
    And it feels so good, it feels so good.
    No matter what you think, it’s understood
    Get it, got it, good.
    When I do my thing, they all go look
    And it feels so good, it feels so good.
    If you call my phone, it’s off the hook
    Do ya get it, got it, good

    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)
    You keep doin’ you tonight, cause i’m doing me (oh yeah)
    We gon rock the party like we up in Ibiza (yeah)
    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)

    Everybody say “(Hey hey hey) oh ay oh (hey hey hey) oh oh”
    Keep it s*** for me
    (Hey hey hey) oh ay oh (hey hey hey) oh oh
    Keep it s*** for me
    (Hey hey hey) oh ay oh (hey hey hey) oh oh
    Keep it s*** for me, yeah
    Oh ay oh, huuuuul

    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)
    You keep doin’ you tonight, cause i’m doing me
    We gon rock the party like we up in Ibiza (yeah)
    I don’t need nobody cause I’m s*** to me (oh yeah)

    Oh ay oh, oh oh, keep it s*** for me,
    Oh ay oh, oh oh, keep it s*** for me,
    Oh ay oh, oh oh, keep it s*** for me,
    Oh ay oh, oh oh

    Yeah, Oh Yeah
    Yeah, Oh Yeah…

    @ blairdevereaux I agree. Its better than anything she released this Era…

  22. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) February 28, 2012

    Hot! ‘S*** To Me’ was one of my favorite leaks/demos, so I’m definitely glad the final version has been released and it sounds great. It has a banging urban pop sound, kind of reminiscent of ‘Blackout’ and ‘Bionic’ at the same time and I LOVE those albums, so I love this track too 🙂

    Can’t wait for the next single 🙂

    (Stop worrying about radio airplay and sales. ‘Disaster’ peaked in the top 30 on radio, so she’s getting some good buzz. Let her do her thing 🙂 )
