Joanna Levesque, known professionally as JoJo, is a singer, songwriter, and actress. Raised in the outskirts of Boston, Massachusetts, she began performing in various singing competitions and local talent shows at a young age.
In 2003, record producer Vincent Herbert noticed her after she competed on the television show America's Most Talented Kids and asked her to audition for his record label Blackground Records. Having signed with them that same year, JoJo released her eponymous debut studio album the following year in June 2004.
It peaked at #4 on the US Billboard 200 and was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), selling over four million copies worldwide to date. With her debut single "Leave (Get Out)" peaking atop the US Billboard Pop songs chart, JoJo became the youngest solo artist in history to top the chart at age 13.
The song peaked at 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold by the RIAA along with its follow-up single “Baby It’s You." Her second studio album The High Road (2006) spawned her first top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Too Little Too Late," peaking at #3, becoming her first single to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
When record label disputes prevented JoJo from commercially releasing her third studio album, she released two mixtapes independently, Can't Take That Away from Me (2010) and Agápē (2012). Following her contractual release, JoJo signed with Atlantic Records in 2014 and released her first commercial extended play “III.
” (2015) while her third studio album Mad Love (2016), finally materialized, becoming her third top ten album on the Billboard 200. JoJo left Atlantic the following year and founded her own record label Clover Music through a joint venture with Warner Records, where she re-recorded and re-released her debut and sophomore albums as the label's first project in December 2018.
In addition to her music career, JoJo has also pursued a career in acting. In 2006, she made her on-screen feature film debut in Aquamarine. That same year, she appeared in R.V. alongside the late Robin Williams.
She has also had guest appearances on several television shows beginning with "The Bernie Mac Show" (2002), "American Dreams" (2004), "Romeo!" (2006), "Hawaii Five-0" (2011), and "Lethal Weapon" (2017).
Other films JoJo has appeared in include the Lifetime Television film True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet (2008) and G.B.F. (2013).
