Da Family/Blackground Records teen phenomenon JoJo hit uncharted territory this week, making music history with her new song “Too Little Too Late,” the debut single from her sophomore album The High Road, which hits stores on October 17th. The sizzling song soared from #66 to #3 on Billboard Magazine’s Hot 100 Singles chart, making it the first song to make the biggest leap in the entire history of the chart. The song has become a multi-format smash, and the perfect return for the 15-year-old Boston native, whose previous platinum-plus self-titled debut album reached #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart and launched the #12 smash “Leave (Get Out).” The video for that single also garnered an MTV Video Music Award nomination, making the combustible JoJo the youngest nominee in the history of the MTV Awards. Her new album The High Road, picks up right where the multi-talented starlet left off, boasting a lineup of much sought after producers including Scott Storch, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, and acclaimed songwriter Sean Garrett among others. JoJo finds herself in unprecedented demand the next few weeks in anticipation of the October 17th release of The High Road, with upcoming promotional appearances including: The Today Show, MTV’s TRL, Regis & Kelly, Ellen DeGeneres, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Megan Mullally and CDUSA. The prodigy has also been keeping herself busy with an acclaimed foray into movies this past year, starring in Aquamarine with Emma Roberts and RV alongside Robin Williams which debuted #1 in America. She has graced the covers of CosmoGirl, Teen, Sweet 16 and Girl’s Life and will soon grace the cover of Seventeen’s much coveted Prom Issue on stands in December. Trained by her Gospel soloist mother, JoJo soon was bringing down the house in every venue where she appeared, continuing her musical training and eventually garnering universal recognition on the TV show America’s Most Talented Kids. Noted producer Vincent Herbert (Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, Destiny’s Child) signed her to his production house, and soon JoJo inked a deal with Blackground Records, releasing her self-titled multi-platinum debut album to critical and commercial acclaim in 2004.
