年轻的“天才”女歌手JoJo在一群大牌制作人的点拨之下发行了个人的首张专辑，这从电视节目中走出的“少女天才”的音乐生涯有了一个不错的开头，她的这张同名首张专辑在北美发行首周的销量就达到了9万5千张，名列Billboard 200排行榜的第四名，在单曲榜上也是成绩有嘉。 自上世纪九十年代中期之后，世界流行乐坛进入了低龄化偶像时代。在最近几年，越来越年轻的偶像女明星更是层出不穷，JoJo不过是他们中的最新成员。不同于以小甜甜布兰妮(Britney Spears)为代表的舞曲风格偶像，也不同于Destiny's Child以及Beyonce的以R&B音乐为主的风格，当然更不同于艾薇儿(Avril Lavigne)和Michelle Branch等人的摇滚风格，JoJo的作品更像是结合了流行舞曲和主流R&B音乐。
Growing up on the outskirts of Boston, MA, JoJo listened and learned as her mother practiced hymns. She started singing by imitating her mother, but quickly put her own spin on everything from nursery rhymes to pop tunes. An ad in the paper announcing open auditions for the television show Kids Say the Darndest Things: On the Road in Boston lead to the young singer wowing the audience along with the show's host, Bill Cosby, and eventually led to a phone call from Oprah Winfrey offering Jojo a spot on her show. Appearances on talk shows and gospel festivals followed, but it was her appearance on the television show America's Most Talented Kids that brought the call from producer Vincent Herbert. The former Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, and Destiny's Child producer had the young singer signed to Blackground Records and arranged sessions with famed producers like the Underdogs and Soulshock & Karlin. Her eponymous debut album followed in June 2004. Since that time, Jojo has added actress to her résumé, starring in the comedies Aquamarine and RV with Robin Williams. She released her sophomore effort, The High Road, in 2006.
