In the Spotlight This Week: JoJo

Joanna Noëlle Blagden Levesque, or better known as JoJo, is a Pop/R&B singer-songwriter and occasional actress. She was first discovered first on America's Most Talented Kids. She was then asked to audition for Blackground Records. She rose to fame after releasing her self-titled debut album, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, with sales of 95,000 copies, selling over 3 million copies worldwide. The first single off of the album, "Leave (Get Out)", was released in February 2004. It climbed to #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was certified gold by the RIAA. The single also rose 5 weeks to #1 on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream, making her the youngest solo artist to have a number-one single in the United States. JoJo's second album, The High Road, was released on October 17, 2006, and debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 108,000 copies, selling over 2 million copies worldwide. The first single of the album, "Too Little Too Late", was released in August 2006 and reached number three on Billboard Hot 100. The single was certified with platinum by the RIAA. All I Want Is Everything is the third studio album and has already been completed. But with the label facing some problems, JoJo can't help but wait. She already sued her recording label and demands release from her contract and $500, 000. Release that album, already!
