K-Ci & JoJo Hailey have been described as having the ability to sing to the power of ten. Their awesome vocal prowess, a uniquely inimitable combination of raw power (K-Ci) tempered by sweet charm (JoJo), has sustained this dynamic duo over an award-winning ten-year career. There’s an even bigger reason for their unparalleled international success. No doubt, you’re familiar with the expression “game face,” best characterized as a determination to play by the rules as hard as one can. No backing down, ‘cause the game is definitely ON! Musically, K-Ci & JoJo are the very embodiment of the phrase, two blood brothers who refuse to approach their craft without their game faces firmly in place. We mention “ten” and “game face” because they mesh seamlessly with K-Ci & JoJo’s current status in life. Their new, and third, MCA Records album is aptly titled X, the Roman numeral for the number 10.
Pardon us if we seem just a bit overly enthusiastic as we tout the many virtues of X, an album so full of surprises and exciting twists and turns that you’ll find yourself caught up in the moment time after time after time. X is a celebration of a just-completed golden decade that began with the legendary multi-platinum Jodeci, hip-hop’s first internationally successful group. Jodeci generated such ten Top Ten hits as “Forever My Lady,” “Stay,” “Come And Talk To Me,” “Lately” and “Cry For You” off 1991's triple Platinum Forever My Lady, 1994's double Platinum Diary Of A Mad Band and 1995's double Platinum The Show, The After-Party, The Hotel.
In 1996, K-Ci & JoJo took the world by surprise by going solo with the triple Platinum “Love Always” and scoring the super-sized # 1 Pop hit, “All My Life,” a song that has since gone on to become an anthem for all lovers who have found that perfect partner. In 1999, K-Ci & JoJo released their second album, the double Platinum It’s Real, which spawned the hits “Tell Me It’s Real” and “Fee Fi Fo Fum.” They closed the millennium by being the only act in music history to have a # 1 Pop song (“All My Life”), # 1 Rap song (2Pac’s “How Do You Want It”) and # 1 Gospel song (The Hailey Family’s “” which was co-written by their mom Anita Hailey “Mama Song”.
The year 2000 marks the beginning of a new millennium and K-Ci & JoJo look to conquer even more horizons with X, the first album on which they decided to let others handle the production efforts. If names such as Babyface, Teddy Riley, Timbaland and--are you ready?—Jodeci co-member Devante Swing don’t get you excited, then check your pulse! And to quicken your pulse just a bit more, K-Ci & JoJo invited special guest the late, great 2Pac on “Thug In Me/Thug In You.”
For the present, though, K-Ci & JoJo bring serious attitude to X. A full decade under K-Ci & JoJo’s belt impacted their lives? K-Ci concludes, “Everywhere we’ve been in the past ten years, we‘ve had fun, we’ve had a lot of love shown to us. This album is special to us. That’s why we call it X, because we want everybody to know what we went through the past ten years.” “The opportunity to travel around the world made us realize that love is not limited,” JoJo reveals. “We put a lot into X. We try to touch every situation dealing with life and love. Like Mama says, ‘We all need love.’”
