JoJo announces 'I Am JoJo' tour

(Paul Archuleta/FilmMagic))

Back in August, mid-Aughts R&B songstress JoJo dropped a “tringle” — her creatively-titled trio of new songs. Now the 24-year-old singer has announced a North American tour to drum up excitement for her upcoming third studio album, her first since 2006’s The High Road.

Consisting of 23 dates, the “I Am JoJo” tour kicks off Nov. 2 in Minneapolis and wraps Dec. 20 in New Orleans. Despite performing a smattering of tour dates and releasing two mixtapes and an EP since The High Road, a label dispute hindered JoJo’s music career for years. “Say Love,” “Save My Soul,” and “When Love Hurts” — the tringle trifecta — are expected to appear on her Atlantic Records debut, which is due sometime in 2016.

“This is the next chapter of my career that I’ve been waiting for, you know, just to be able to put out music,” JoJo recently told EW. “I’m also 24, so I feel like I’m just starting.”
