JoJo, Frank Ocean and Not Saying Sorry For The Wait

“What do you want from me? I would say I’m sorry if I really meant it.” So goes the chorus of JoJo’s new single “Fuck Apologies,” which features Wiz Khalifa and previews her first album in 10 years.

The slinky R&B single is an empowerment anthem, ostensibly about dismissing an ex and staying true to one’s self, but it’s also a cry for independence from an artist who was famously under the thumb of the record industry during what should have been the peak of her powers.
