Jojo shows ‘Mad Love’ with her third album

It’s a new month and a new year. Since it’s January and this artist just re-released all of her old music, it’s only fitting to dedicate a whole month to her. Welcome to Jojo January. No, it’s for JoJo Siwa and her obsession with big bows. That’s all the jokes I’m going to make about her since she’s only like 8 years old. I’m talking about the original teen queen Jojo. There are four Fridays in January and she happens to have three albums and two extra songs on iTunes.

The final Friday in Jojo January is here! It’s been a fun time and it’s rather sad that it’s coming to close but at least we’ve gotten to the happier time. It’s time to review the latest album that Miss Levesque has given into the world. Let’s talk about “Mad Love.”

Fake Ass Bitches

“Mad Love” was released in 2016 by Jojo. It came out 10 years after her second album “The High Road.” It was a long time coming and honestly one of the most anticipated releases of Jojo’s entire career. It was her first release on her new label Atlantic Records. They did her right. It was finally here. We final got the third album we should have gotten five to six years ago.

The album itself is literally everything. It was Jojo’s first adulthood album. The themes in the album have more of a mature feel to it. It has explicit lyrics to some of the song and as you probably are aware, I live for child/teen stars swearing up a storm. So hearing Jojo say the f word made this album for me.

The album tells and takes you through a story. It’s a slightly emotional start with the song “Music” before getting lighter and more upbeat. The album still has its moments but it has a decent amount of bops with this album. Some of my faves or “I Can Only,” “Fuck Apologies,” “FAB,” “High Heels,” “Edibles,” and “Vibe.” I’m a sucker for killer vocals and good beat.

I do wish that the song from her EP “III” would have made it on to the album. I get why they aren’t but they would have been a better fit than some of the song on the album. Even just as extra songs. “III” was a good taste for what we got in “Mad Love,” it’s just a shame that those three songs were over looked.

Verdict

“Mad Love” is the album that I highly recommend to everyone. It takes you on a journey from start to finish. It’s not an overly emotional journey but still a journey. Some songs are better than others but overall, it’s everything. It’s not like “The High Road” but it’s still a great album. “Mad Love” is a instant classic album.

I highly recommend also checking out Jojo’s mixtapes because they too are fire.

The positive review of Britney Spears’ ill-fated ‘Britney Jean’

In the sake of being more positive, I thought about trying to pick the Top 5ive songs off of crappy and not very good albums. Boy, that was a pain in the butt. It was like trying to the best redeeming qualities of an orange loudmouth who may or may not being homophobic, racist, and appear to be very sticky. So I decided to it might be better just to talk about the positive things about it instead. What a better way to do it then with the album that all Britney Spears fans hate, “Britney Jean.”

Sorry Leslie Knope, but this isn’t a trap. How this is going to work is that I’m going to talk positively about the album without mentioning the singles. So “Work Bitch” and “Perfume” won’t be mentioned at all. It’s like the never existed, what we all wish would happen with this album. If I do a good job, then I’ll allow myself one paragraph to bitch and moan about this album.

There are two types of People in the world…

“Britney Jean” is a good experimental album for Britney Spears. It’s an album that is unlike any of her previous works before. None of her previous stuff sounds like this. There’s a decent amount of songs that rather good club bangers. “Till It’s Gone,” “Body Ache,” and “Tik Tik Boom” have catchy beats and you can really jam out to it.

Britney also brings up her game as she features a lot of big names on the album. Her sister Jamie Lynn Spears, T.I., and will.i.am are featuring on songs that will make you shake. It’s rather refreshing to see Britney interact with other artists on her album. Before “Glory,” She really hasn’t other artist featured in her song since her 2004 album “In The Zone.”

If you don’t want to hear my actual thoughts then I would just skip the following paragraph. I earned my paragraph to bitch and moan about “Britney Jean.” This is the hardest thing I had to do. Even if some of it is sarcasm. So without further ado, here’s a paragraph of my thoughts on “Britney Jean:”

While I think “Work Bitch” is the highlight of the album, “Britney Jean” is just positively her worst album ever. I truly believe that “Lohan Holiday” is a better album just because it had a single and consistent theme to it. “Britney Jean” was all over the place and didn’t sound like Britney at all. If this bitch could hit the high note in “Passenger” all this time, then just give her all the Grammys. Don’t get me started on the songs she did with will.i.am and her sister. I could go on and on about how horrible they are. They ruined my soul listening to them.

I hope you enjoyed my positive only review of “Britney Jean.” I hurt every fiber of my soul to write this. I’m very glad that Britney took the time to make something. Next positive review will hopefully be a little bit easier.

Jojo takes ‘The High Road’ to her queendom

It’s a new month and a new year. Since it’s January and this artist just re-released all of her old music, it’s only fitting to dedicate a whole month to her. Welcome to Jojo January. No, it’s for JoJo Siwa and her obsession with big bows. That’s all the jokes I’m going to make about her since she’s only like 8 years old. I’m talking about the original teen queen Jojo. There are four Fridays in January and she happens to have three albums and two extra songs on iTunes.

While we all agree that Jojo is the queen we can get behind, her second album is where it’s at. The name of it ended up foreshadowing what would be her life after the release of her second album. I’ve dive deeper into it when we talk about next single before her third studio album “Mad Love.” It was pretty much the worst thing that could happen to an artist. But she rose above and that’s why we stan her. We only stan queens and Jojo is a queen.

Your chance has come and gone

Originally released in 2006, Jojo’s “The High Road” was her follow up to the self-titled album “Jojo.” The album itself was a little bit more matured than her first. It was more of a reflection of her life at the time. This album signaled growth. Her growth as an artist and as a person.

I’ll be honest, this album was a much better and stronger album than “Jojo.” So far, it’s my favorite album of her. It’s a mix of hip hop, rock, and pop. This came across more like what you would get with Jojo. The first album had her come across as this cool chick like J-Lo. She was Jo-Lo. This album seemed more like Joanna Levesque. This was real, this was her. This was exactly who she wanted to be. She was going to let the light, shine on her.

“Too Little Too Late” is, of course, the stand out on the album. It’s probably her most well-known single. It’s probably the song that best represents the album. There aren’t really any bad songs on the album. There are some that just fell flat but it’s not like “Jojo.” Like I said in that review, that album all blended into each other. Nothing stood out. This is not the case with “The High Road.” It’s a more well-rounded album. Other favorites on the album are “Let it Rain,” and “Anything.” “Anything” samples the iconic song from Toto called “Africa.” Those are bops. “The Way You Do Me” is a dirty little diddy that makes you question the adults of her former record label. Why would you let a 16 year old sing about sex like that.

Verdict

Overall, “The High Road” is a much better and more personal album from Jojo. I enjoyed it more than I did in the first album. It’s a nice mix of genres and as I said, it sounds more like Jojo than the first. I also recommend this album.

I also recommend listening to the Spanish version of “Too Little Too Late.” I’m a big listener of Spanish versions of songs. It’s a gem that most people just sleep on it. I found it on YouTube but it’s a full-on bop to the top.

Poppy gets edgy and deep with newest album ‘Am I A Girl?’

She’s your internet girl

Everyone’s favorite YouTube star has released her second album on Halloween of all days. No, it’s not JoJo Siwa. She did team up with Jake Paul for something. I’m talking about Poppy. Everybody loves Poppy. Everyone wants to be her.

Click here to our article about Poppy

“Am I A Girl?” is Poppy’s second album. Honestly, this is her second strongest release to date. Her strongest was her EP that she released as That Poppy called “Bubblebath.” It’s very much so underrated.  So is some of the promo singles released too. “Am I A Girl?” is a mix of electronic pop music and rock music. I really enjoyed the rock part of the album. I want an entire rock album from her. Her vocals sound extreme good with a metal backing. It was something that was unexpected when I started to listen to “Am I A Girl?” I wasn’t the biggest fan of her first album “Poppy. Computer.” It wasn’t a bad album but it just fell short of what it could have been. It might have been the fact that “Bubblebath” was so good. The lyrics on this album is honestly everything. They have a deep meaning with them. The album is split into different segments. As you get go through the album, the more edgy and rock/metal it gets. There’s even some iconic lines in there that is will make you laugh and just die because they are iconic. I highly recommend giving “Am I A Girl?” a listen. It’s all bops with extremely good and catchy lyrics are meaningful. I love me a catchy tune with a great message. Poppy is still the queen of the Internet.  I hope she is able to capitalize on this album and ride it the metal road into the future.
