Weekly Music Video

This week it's Save My Soul by American singer JoJo. Her full name is Joanna Noelle Blagden Levesque and she started out as a child star, appearing on TV talent shows. At 12 she signed with Blackground Records and released her debut single Leave (Get Out) in 2004 aged 13, then her debut album JoJo. Leave (Get Out) and Baby It's You featuring American rapper Bow Wow were JoJo's two most successful singles from the album, Leave was No 1 in the US and No 2 in the UK. Not That Kinda Girl was the the 3rd single from JoJo but it wasn't released commercially in the US.

In 2006 JoJo brought out her second album The High Road, which also did well. 3 songs were released from the album, Too Little Too Late, How To Touch A Girl and Anything. The best seller was Too Little Too Late.

JoJo ran into record label problems while trying to release her third album and was set to release it through Interscope Records but that never happened. She eventually filed a lawsuit against Blackground and Da Family but the case was later dropped and she signed a new deal with Atlantic Records in 2014.

While JoJo has only released 2 studio albums to date, she has brought out 3 mixtapes- Can't Take That Away Fron Me (2010), Agape (2012) and #:LoveJo (2014). #LoveJo was available as a free download from her Soundcloud. She also released the single Disaster in 2011 and several other promotional singles including In The Dark (2010), Demonstrate and Andre (both 2012).

In addition to singing JoJo acts. Two of her most well known films are Aquamarine and RV. She also appeared in an episode of the new version of TV series Hawaii Five-O.

JoJo is now 24 and has just released her latest EP Tringle. Well, I think the EP is called III but the 3 singles released together are called a "tringle". Her 3rd studio album is due for release soon.

I'm glad to see the return of JoJo. :) She's a good singer and I've been hoping she'll bring out a new album for ages. I remember waiting for Jumping Trains (the name of her third album at one time) to come out but it never did.

Save My Soul is one of the singles from Tringle. The other two are Say Love and When Love Hurts.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
