This week I wanted to spotlight one of the three simultaneously released singles by JoJo. After having issues with her previous label, JoJo—now signed to a new label—has finally returned to the music scene and she’s leaving no weaves unsnatched.
“You got what you wanted, didn’t you?”
“Save My Soul” is my favorite of the three amazing tracks from her recently released EP, “III.” It’s fire, poignant, and incredibly catchy, leaving me wondering why radio stations aren’t blasting this as much as they do other songs I hear played almost five times an hour. For real, get into it!
Underrated Gems is a weekly meme which showcases recently released content ranging from books, movies, TV shows, music and more that I feel have been overlooked and under appreciated. These are my own selections and opinions and I am in no way being compensated or sponsored (unless otherwise stated) to promote any items featured.
REVIVAL marks the second solo album for pop sensation/actress Selena Gomez. Veering from her sugar-pop days as heard in early group efforts under Selena Gomez & The Scene, and into new club-friendly thumpers and heart wrenching ballads, Selena finds a new voice that suits her evolving nature. With sexy tracks such as the hit single “Good For You” to fun party anthem “Me & My Girls” Revival is an incredibly relate-able album for young adults and those alike who just like to have a good time, “chill”, or need a song that just hits all the feels. The club tracks are fire and the ballads are beautiful, I feel Revival is a very strong album and the heart and soul of Gomez and her team really flourish in each track.
SOBER – Sober is a smash. Selena confronts a jerk who only shows her love and affection when drunk or in a “heightened sense” (*wink) then once they sober up they aren’t as interested in her anymore. “Up in the clouds, yeah you know how to make me want you/When we come down, oh I know, yeah I know it’s over.” A tragic pop ballad that is wildly relate-able to many who may be experiencing the same type of relationships.
NOBODY – “Nobody’s gonna love me like you…” coos Selena in the chorus of this amorous track. A gentle song about professing love for someone and being grateful for having them in your life to make you happy.
ME & THE RHYTHM – Me & The Rhythm was a song I loved right off the bat. It’s fun, it’s sexy and is totally club friendly. I can totally see this blasting at all the gay clubs soon if not already, especially since it evokes disco and Kylie Minogue realness with Selena Gomez flair. Come through, Mama!
KILL EM WITH KINDNESS – This is the perfect cruising song with a chill af whistle break. One of those songs where you think about nothing in particular, just chill and drive around the city at night exploring things and whatnot. It’s dangerously catchy and will have you singing along by the second play.

My blog was recently hacked and because I suffered a slight lapse in logic, I erased all of my content in the process of reinstalling it. Years of reviews, author posts and interviews are gone because of this breach. But all is not lost. I guess I’ll have to start new and hopefully take this site to new places it has never been before! Hopefully this mess will be sorted out soon.
Until then, always wishing you the absolute best!
