JoJo Performs “Dirty Laundry” on ‘The Ellen Show’
Former The Masked Singer contestant, JoJo, performed her new single “Dirty Laundry” on The Ellen Show alongside Parson James. The best friend duo delivered some powerhouse vocals on stage. Their close bond and real-life chemistry made the performance all the more special. The official music video for the single is out now on YouTube and the song is available across all streaming platforms.
“The Hottest Platonic Coupling of 2021. The bestie/ mom+ dad duo you never knew you needed. Just think of the love and acceptance and BOPS that would have filled your childhood if we raised you. WHAT A MOMENT. To sing with one of my best friends on the final season of @theellenshow ?! I am shook!!!!!” JoJo shared with fans on Instagram.
For the performance, the pair transformed the Ellen stage into a laundromat. The symbolism for the single was very apparent here, and I appreciate the artists for providing us with the visual. A true friendship like theirs allowed for an open discussion of trials and tribulations in relationships. This is what makes “Dirty Laundry” so genuine and heartfelt. The single gives fans perspective on dealing with romantic issues alongside a supportive best friend.
The main storyline of the music video centers around JoJo as she deals with the constant disappointment of her relationship. The video cuts back and fourth between her getting glammed up for a date night with her significant other, and text messages between the two. After putting in an extraordinary effort to prepare a beautiful dinner, she is stood up, for what seems to be the umpteenth time.
She then calls James, who comes by right away to stick by her side and ease her hurt feelings. The sentiment behind the song, reminds us with close friendships about the power of putting your trust in someone who will keep your secrets safe.
From The Masked Singer to New Singles
JoJo has for sure staged a comeback since her appearance on The Masked Singer. Her Black Swan character proved to be a fan favorite on the show’s fifth season. Throughout the season, fans speculated Black Swan’s identity after hearing her show-stopping vocals on renditions of songs.
The “Baby It’s You” singer took the runner-up spot, and commends the show for helping to conquer her stage fright. In the midst of her time on the show, JoJo released “Creature of Habit.” The song is about someone who feels addicted to the habit of a relationship, although they are not truly happy in it. Clearly a new theme for this stage of JoJo’s career.
