JoJo Joins Atlantic Records After Ending Troubled Relationship With Blackground
After years of battling against Blackground Music, JoJo has finally been released from the label. According to L.A. Times, the "Too Little Too Late" singer has now joined Atlantic Record, which also signed the likes of Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae, Wiz Khalifa and K. Michelle.
Due to multi-year legal troubles with Blackground, JoJo was unable to release the follow-up to her successful 2006 album, "The High Road". Her fans launched a #FreeJoJo Twitter campaign for her release, and last July, the star filed a lawsuit demanding to be released from the label and its imprint, Da Family Records.
In the suit that was filed in New York State Supreme Court, she claimed that the label had been holding her hostage for the better part of seven years. She also complained about how the they neglected to pay producers and "other vendors" she collaborated with.
While she couldn't release an album under the label, JoJo put out 2010's "Can't Take That Away From Me [mixtape]" and 2012's "Agape [mixtape]".
In addition to "The High Road", JoJo has released a self-titled set "JoJo" in 2004. The 23-year-old starlet, who signed the deal with Atlantic in December, is now on track to releasing her third album.
