JoJo Featuring Bow Wow - Baby It's You

March 22, 2012 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

As you may have guessed, I'm quite a big fan of JoJo, real name Joanna Levesque. She has had record problems in releasing her third album and so the UK still lies in wait for the day "Disaster" gets released here, and by the looks of things it may never happen, although there's quite a lot of popularity around the song here. She collaborates with Bow Wow on this track, real name Shad Moss and formerly known as Lil' Bow Wow. Recently his popularity has died, so now is the time for him to come back, as rapping and R&B music is definitely in right now.

"Baby It's You" was written by The Underdogs members: Harvey Mason Jr., Damon Thomas, Eric Dawkins and Antonio Dixon. They have worked with a lot of artists in the past, so it's no wonder they worked with JoJo also. JoJo connects with this song amazingly, and you can tell she means what she's singing, however the music is a bit loud compared to her voice, and you kind of hear the song more than the lyrics. It is worse on the album and singles that were released, whereas it's not too bad on the music video.

The music video takes place at a funfair, and it looks like they had great fun, and I bet you they went on all the rides, but maybe the camera couldn't follow the roller coaster or something. There are some great bits and I can't help laughing, such as soaking the guy with the water pistols, I'd so love to do that one day.

However I don't see how this music video relates to the song. The song is all about wanting to be with this guy and no matter where she goes or how much money is spent on her, she doesn't care, as long as she's with him, everything's going to be fine. However, where is this guy in the music video? Is it Bow Wow, or someone else? And is the funfair a place she goes with him in tow or what?

Overall the song is good and heart-felt, but the video could have related one way or another. However there's some great clips and they make me laugh quite a few times. I'm just begging her to release "Disaster" some time soon, the UK really wants to buy it!
