Disaster
by JoJo

Album: non-album single (2011)
Charted: 87
  • This single was released to US radio on August 29, 2011 and made available for purchase as a digital download on September 6, 2011.
  • JoJo explained to AOL Music that the song tackles the perils of a disastrous relationship. "'Disaster' is basically about how sometimes you get so deep into a relationship, and it gets progressively horrifying and real disastrous," she explained. "Whether it be emotional abuse or another type of abuse, it's like, 'How did I end up in this storm?' So it's an emotional record, but it's definitely resilient in the end."
  • The Benny Boom-directed video was shot on September 14, 2011 in downtown Los Angeles. It stars JoJo performing the song, whilst her motorcycle-riding boyfriend is portrayed by British actor Rafi Gavron (Breaking and Entering, Inkheart). Speaking about its concept JoJo said "Were going to be seeing the inner workings of a relationship that starts off good and turns out to be disastrous, my boyfriend in this video is a motorcyclist so he runs a stoplight and there's an accident and it's not good".
