Jonas Brothers World 2009 [American leg] openers the Wonder Girls will soon release English versions of their Korean hit songs Nobody & Tell Me, according to AllKPop. JYP Entertainment representative:
'Wonder Girls had signed with one of Hollywood's top talent agencies, CAA in October 2008. They also inked a contract with Jonas Brothers company, Jonas Group to join them on their concert tour. Their full-length English album will be available in September or October.'
On their Nobody lead single: 'Through discussions with CAA and Jonas Group, they felt that Nobody had an irresistible charm surrounding it. The music and overall feel of the song were perfect plus it helped to accentuate the image..
..of the Wonder Girls very well. Industry critics in America also felt that the retro 80s disco style of Nobody would be particularly refreshing, especially in the American music scene.'
WG's producer: 'Although the Wonder Girls and I are kinda nervous, we are also contended and excited about this at the same time. This is something that we have planned together for a long time, so I am sure we will not let everyone down. We hope that everyone will continue to show their support for us.'
From MyDaily: The Wonder Girls' English album will have songs written and composed by Jonas Brothers. The girls will also work with the Jonas Brothers to come up with an electronic house number.
JoJo is going to college! Myspace: I'm NOT putting my career on hold, nor my education. I am still working on the album, waiting for Blackground's new deal to get finalized, getting ready to put a new single/video/album out, etc.. and also.. getting ready for college!
IM VERY EXCITED FOR THIS NEW CHALLENGE AND ENDEAVOR..
After much consideration and research, I have decided that Northeastern University is the place for me! In the past week I've taken tours and met with students and professors of other Boston based schools, and now that the time to commit has come, I'm happy with the idea of being a student at Northeastern.
They have a wonderful cultural anthropology program (which is what I am interested in going for) as well as a dual major option in International Affairs/ Anthropology. Im so excited! But as I mentioned in an earlier post, I am not going to put my career on hold, however.
Progress is being made right now in Blackground's legal/contractual negotiations that have been holding up the release of any new music for months now. But I am happy to say that it looks like things are about to (finally) get rolling. Whhhhewwww.!! Since I feel the need to cover all my bases..
I think it is essential and beneficial for me to eventually have a college degree. My long term goal is to gain a doctorate.. but I gotta take it ONE step at a time!! Lol.
Thanks for your support and encouraging words.
JoJo updated Myspace blog: Hey pals,
I'm writing this to vent a bit, Perhaps
I'm a bit overzealous to release the new material that I've recorded out as the process of waiting becomes increasingly agitating by the week. Friends, family, folks I meet on the street have been asking me 'When are you coming out with something new?' Unfortunately, I don't have a concrete answer.
And then there's my favorite question- 'Are you DOING anything?' Lol.. yes. I promise I don't sit around on my sofa in sweatpants all day. Although I'm not on tv, magazines, radio right now- I'm still working below the radar putting the new songs together and get things ready.
I do my part and will energetically and enthusiastically continue to do so, its also very much so up to the other people involved in the behind-the-scenes aspect of my project. Its frustrating and inauspicious to feel out of control in certain areas of life, but I ultimately I believe that everything happens for a reason and will serve as a learning experience.
JoJo collaborating with Mario? Here is she performing 'Weak'. JoJo also updated her Myspace blog about her album [+2 new pictures under!]: I am still hard at work on my new album. It feels like a never ending process and to be honest, it frustrates me to not be on the road, not promoting..
..and not interacting with people in the way that i love to so much, but I am so confident that the finished product will be worth the wait. I am so pleased to be intrinsically involved in each song on this record thus far..
..I am still finishing my senior year in high school and am looking forward to graduating within the next few months. (Btw, I just turned 18 a couple of weeks ago! Yay! lol)
Like I mentioned earlier, waiting and anticipating this album is frustrating, but I am more ready than ever to make this year my best yet..
..in every capacity. There have been alot of changes being made at my record label and things that are out of my control that have set back this process a bit, but I am hopeful that they will come together soon
