JoJo sits down with Kyle Meredith to discuss her new EP, Trying Not To Think About It, it’s firth single “Worst (I Assume),” and the building the new songs around mental health, negative patterns, and how depression affects your relationships. The singer/songwriter/actress goes on to discuss how Joni Mitchell’s Blue album lent a heavy dose of inspiration when looking toward the lyrics, musically looking towards classic Usher, Justin Timberlake, and Aaliyah, and more recent artists like H.E.R, Victoria Monet, and Silk Sonic.
