Amazing Cover: "Caught Up in the Rapture" (JoJo)

Back on Valentine's Day last year, unannounced, JoJo released a Free EP '#LOVEJO' onto her official SoundCloud page for a free download to honor Valentine's Day in addition to celebrating being signed to her new label Atlantic Records after being signed to Blackground for several years unable to officially release new music.

Now back in the studio working on her first album in nine years, the highly anticipated followup to The High Road, '#LOVEJO' is a phenomenal EP that was produced by Da Internz and features the standout sublime cover of the Anita Baker's classic "Caught Up in the Rapture."

Anita Baker in my book is an artist one should not cover lightly and covering one of her most iconic joints, such as "Caught Up in the Rapture" is dangerous territory in my book.  With that said, JoJo and Da Internz brilliantly constructed a perfect cover of "Caught Up in the Rapture" that both pays homage to and reimagines this classic joint at the same time.

With that said, take a listen below to JoJo's sublime interpretation of Anita Baker's "Caught Up in the Rapture" and Enjoy!
