Call it a comeback? // JoJo’s still got it

If you constantly rubberneck and nostalgacise* on your formative tween years like I do then you’ll not only remember JoJo, you’ll have drunkenly sung Get Out (Leave) – you tell him sistah – every time the nearest thing resembling a mic’s waved in your face. Now, she’s back. Again.

Thing is, ever since young JoJo brought us that aforementioned classic and made 13-year-old boys and pervs alike rub one off to her Barely Not Even Legal gyrating, the girl’s had a string of false starts.

Where her next hit Too Little Too Late showed all the promise of an R&B Taylor Swift without the Jonas bros/purity ring weirdness, the album was a disappointment so lacklustre, it made white noise sound like The Rolling Stones.

Since then she’s put out some massively decent stuff online like the emosh-titled Keep Forgetting (To Forget Bout You) in ’09 and last year’s viral hit – a cover of Drake’s Marvin’s Room.

And now she’s teamed up with Drizzy’s producer Noah 40 Shebib with this slo-mo jam, Demonstrate. I’m just waiting for someone to crack out the drank and upload a Chopped & Screwed version of this mutha.

No mention of an upcoming album but with any luck, THIS WILL BE JOJO’S YEAR**. You go JoJo, you go!

* this isn’t a word. Totally made it up.

**don’t hedge your bets.

    Nostalgacise *should* be a word. Let’s start a petition! Also, I’d forgotten how good JoJo actually was! Well, those two songs that she did, anyway… Get out (leave)! Right now (go)! Etc. Huh.

    Is it me or does she look like Stacey Slater from Eastenders? In fact, I’m going to post this conundrum on Facebook right now (leave!) 😉
