If you’re going to write a love song, there’s no better person to feature on the track than JoJo. Throughout the past eight years, she has sort of become the token singer for heartbreak and betrayal. Today, her latest single with Skizzy Mars has officially been released for our listening pleasure. The track is called “Recognize” and it’s a cute tribute to all the real one’s out there. (You know who you are.)
The collaboration hustles and flows as JoJo and Skizzy Mars playfully recite their lines back and forth to one another. The main message to decode here: Keep your eyes sharp because when the real ones hit you, there’s no looking back. (Hands down, the realest line is “Baby, if I tell you what I want, don’t call me crazy / If I tell you I’m in love, no I ain’t playing.”) Preach, JoJo.
“Recognize” is featured on Skizzy Mars’ forthcoming album Alone Together, due out on April 8 via Atlantic Records. Stream the steamy single, above.
