The Other Chick
by JoJo

Album: not on an album (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This buzz single was made available on May 14, 2011 via JoJo's official website, after the unfinished demo version of the song was leaked a week prior. She told AOL Music: "It was a cool thing to warm up the marketplace and show people that I have something a little edgier than when I was 15, when I was last out."
  • JoJo explained the song's meaning to AOL Music: "That is about dealing with the feelings of being humiliated. Believing one truth and realizing that it was a total lie, and just being like, 'Damn, I'm the side chick?! Word?!' You know, because we never think that that can happen to us. And then it does."
