Joanna Noëlle Blagden Levesque, professioanlly known as JoJo , is an American pop/R&B singer-songwriter and actress.
JoJo's vocal talent was first recognized when she competed on America's Most Talented Kids. A thirteen-year-old Joanna Levesque was then signed onto blackground records, with whom she released her self-titled debut album, JoJo, which validated her as a teen pop sensation.
JoJo reached number 4 on the Billboard 200, and spawned two hit singles, including her signature "Leave (Get Out)", which reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number 1 on the pop charts, making her the youngest solo artist in history to have a number-one single.
JoJo's popularity continued to boom with the release of her second studio album, The High Road. Although this album did not produce as many hit singles as her debut, it reached number 3 on the Billboard 200, and spawned JoJo's best-selling single to-date, "Too Little, Too Late", which performed better on the charts than "Leave (Get Out)", reaching number 3 on the Hot 100.
In the fall of 2011, JoJo released the first single from her upcoming third studio album, Jumping Trains, entitled "Disaster".
