JoJo, “Marvin’s Room (Can’t Do Better)” MP3


The last time I thought about JoJo was in 2004, when she released the processed pop (but not entirely bad) “Leave (Get Out),” at 14. In the video, she’s wearing a ribbed tank-top that says “boys stink.” In the seven years since, she’s naturally refined her vocal output, though her general purview remains unchanged. She is now, however, semi-excellent with a barb, in place of vague pop platitudes. Over Drake’s melancholy, self-indulgent “Marvin’s Room” beat, JoJo laments Fuck that new girl that you like so bad/ She’s not crazy like me/ I bet you like that. Then she gets raw: When you’re in her I know I’m in your head. She should duet with Adele.
