JoJo Posts Video For 'Good To Know' Track Small Things

Wednesday, 24 June 2020 Written by Huw Baines

JoJo has released a video for Small Things.

The track features on her recent album ‘Good To Know’, while the clip was directed by Santiago Salviche and choreographed by Bec Morris. In a statement, JoJo said:

I've been trying to wait for the right moment to share this video with you. With everything going on in the world and in our own backyard, I didn’t want anyone to misconstrue its release as some kind of indication that I’ve moved on from the revolution at hand, here in America. 

I want to say it clear as day: Black people made me who I am. Not only my longest standing friendships, but also the record executives, mentors, teachers, romantic partners, and loyal fans who believed in me and took a chance on me - they have all shaped me. Without their support in every way, and without the artists who inspire me to make music, I would not exist. My support for Black lives/art/love/safety/freedom is not a phase nor does it have an expiration date. I’m honored to be a part of R&B culture and I never take my warm reception for granted. 

Here’s a piece of art that we made to express how painful it can be to hold in your feelings. To act like you’re okay, when- in all honesty- you’re not. I wanted this video to feel like catharsis. A special thank you to these beautiful artists/dancers for blessing this video with their incredible talents - Morgan Choice, Halima Dodo, Dominique Battiste and Alexandra Carson.

"The function of freedom is to try to free someone else." - Toni Morrison

Always grateful. Always yours, 

Jo.
