    So I'm listening to a playlist of some old school 2000 Pop Hits (What can I say, that's my childhood) :manny:

    Anyway, Jojo's "Get Out" pops up on my Spotify, I instantly hit the :why: Thinking this doesn't sound like the original song at all. So I go to the album itself to find out it says Get Out (2018) along with every other song on the album.



    I figured it was some label bullshyt she had to deal with, so I googled it and this came up.

    Full Article:- JoJo on the Re-Release of Her First Two Albums, and What to Expect Next

    There have been plenty of reports over the years about the dispute between you and your former label. Could you tell me in your words what exactly went down and why your first two albums were unavailable?

    I wish I had a better reason for the first two albums not being available, but I think the simplest answer is that my former label just didn't make a deal with the streaming platforms. As far as I know, nobody's music from that label is available on streaming, which includes Aaliyah's last two albums. I wanted my music to be out there because if people were just discovering me for the first time, it looked like I started my career in 2016 with Mad Love. That was really weird for me, especially because I put out my first album when I was 13 in 2004.

    This also explains why I could never find Aaliyah tracks unless they were on a random compilation album :ohhh:

    I remember reading on here that DMX wanted to do something like that as well

    Anyone else got anymore cases like this where the artist has had to re-record their shyt cause label problems?

    Holy crap! I heard Taylor Swift wants to do this.

    Never knew it happened with others.

    Usually the fist time I hear a track Im on it.

    Even if I hear slight differences. Different vocal inflections, or samples taken out.

    Even remastered versions. My brain always likes the first version.

    Jojo was signed to Blackground records. The same label that Aaliyah was signed to. She signed a terrible contract at 12 years old with them and was in court for I want to say five or six years trying to get out of her contract.

    She’s the only other person I’ve heard of wanting to do this but Jojo was the first I knew of that actually did it. Some labels will have their artists in hell with their contracts.

    Yeah part of not owning your masters. You can re-record the songs and in theory they’re yours, but like you said they never sound the same.

    Jojo signed her deal at 12 years old, and I am sure there was no indication in the contract of her ever getting those masters.

    There was a Complex article about Blackground. The gist of it was the dude who owns the label (Aaliyah's uncle Barry Hankerson) owes a ton of money from lawsuit a woman filed against him for stalking her, and the label royalties are how he is supposed to pay her, and he's such a weirdo that he would rather just not generate any money through the label than have to pay the woman anything
