Jojo wants out of a very bad, raw, deal.
After being seemingly stuck for seven years, Jojo is suing Blackground Records for her release. According to the New York Daily News, JoJo has filed a lawsuit against Da Family Records and Blackground Records claiming that under New York State law, minors cannot sign contracts that last more than seven years.
JoJo and her parents signed a contract in 2004 when she was only 12 years old. Jojo argues that her contract was up in March 2011. The 22-year-old talent has had a highly-publicized battle with her label and has not released a commercial album since 2006′s ‘The High Road’.
Jojo recorded her third studio album and even shot the packaging, but the label refused to give her a release date. Here’s what Jojo told BUzzFeed back in May.
‘Blackground Records lost their distribution deal through Interscope, and if you can get the answer from them on why that happened, that would be a miracle.’
In the past few years, Jojo has released two free mixtapes including 2010′s ‘Can’t Take That Away From Me’ and 2012′s ‘Agápē’.
