American singer-songwriter JoJo has released two studio albums, two mixtapes, two extended plays (EPs), seven singles, seven promotional singles and fourteen music videos. JoJo has sold more than 7 million albums worldwide,[1] and has sold over 2.1 million albums and 4 million digital downloads in the United States alone.[2][3] JoJo signed a seven album record deal with Blackground Records in 2003 and released her eponymous debut album the following year at the age of 13.

In the United States JoJo peaked at number 4 on the Billboard 200, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Her debut single "Leave (Get Out)" (2004) peaked at number 12 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and certified gold by the RIAA. But the lead single became number one on Billboard Top 40 Mainstream for five weeks which made, JoJo, at age thirteen, the youngest solo artist to ever have a number-one single on that chart. Her second single "Baby It's You" (2004) with rapper Bow Wow is her first collaboration single of her career and peaked on number 22 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Her third single "Not That Kinda Girl" (2005) was not commercially released in the United States and therefore failed to chart there. The album has sold 4 million copies worldwide to date.

JoJo released her second studio album, The High Road, in October 2006. The album peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200, at age 15. The album's lead single, "Too Little Too Late" (2006), became a top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Too Little Too Late later broke a record for the biggest jump into the top 3 entry in the Billboard chart, moving from number sixty-six to number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. It not only broke a record it became her fist ever platinum single at age 15. The second single, "How to Touch a Girl" (2006), failed to make impact, however the single peaked at number four on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart.[4] JoJo third and final single from the album, "Anything" (2007) contains a sample from Toto's 1982 song "Africa". But the single managed to stay in the top forty of the UK Singles Chart for three weeks and hit the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream at number 38.The album has sold 3 million copies worldwide

The singer's first mixtape, Can't Take That Away from Me, was released in 2010. It was preceded by the single "In The Dark" (2010).[5] On September 6, 2011 JoJo released the single, "Disaster" (2011), to US radios and all digital outlets. It officially impacted U.S. Top 40/Mainstream radio on October 25, 2011.[6] "Demonstrate" (2012) made its worldwide debut on July 17, 2012 and is currently awaiting official release.[7] It will now serve as the lead single from JoJo's yet-to-be-titled third studio album.[7] JoJo released her second free mixtape, Agápē, in 2012. The mixtape produced three singles: "We Get By" (2012) and "Andre" (2012).[8][9] "Thinking Out Loud" (2014) was set to be released as a full extended version as the mixtape's third single in early 2014, with the song's accompanying music video was directed by Aaron A; however, both remain unreleased.

On January 14, 2014, it was officially announced that JoJo was released from her multi-year battle with her label Blackground and has since signed a new recording contract with Atlantic Records in mid-December 2013. She is currently working on her seven years in the making third studio album and first for the new label. On Valentine's Day 2014, one month after she announced the new partnership, she released a free downloadable EP for her fans titled #LoveJo which included cover songs of Atlantic-affiliated artists Anita Baker and Phil Collins.[10]
