Hot off the heels of his Grammy win for Best Traditional R&B Performance, PJ Morton has teamed up with JoJo on the soulful duet, “Say So.”
The duo glide over a simple piano melody, their buttery vocals taking center stage. Bass kicks in towards the end of the track, bringing with it a new energy. “So if you love me, just say so, just say so / ’Cause I can’t play these games with you no more / So if you love me, just say so, then just say so / I need to know from you right now, before I go,” they sing.
“I’ve always been a fan of JoJo, even back in the TRL days,” Morton said in a statement. “Her talent was always out of this world. I knew that I wanted to make ‘Say So’ a duet and wanted to make sure it was with a voice I truly believed in.”
“Say So” is the first release of 2019 for both singers. JoJo previously dropped re-recorded versions of her debut and sophomore albums, while PJ Morton’s live album Gumbo Unplugged arrived early last year.
