JoLivi releases her new single “Love Who You Wanna Love,” a record that opens a new chapter for the pop singer and songwriter: openly identifying as bisexual.
This track begins a new conversation for JoLivi, personally and as an artist. “‘Love who you want to love’ is an expression of how I believe everyone should go through life—and that is without judgment,” she told Bust Magazine. “I’ve had friends struggle through times of confusion on their orientation and before my own experience I had always encouraged them to break free and not care about what anyone else will think of them. But I now know that it is extremely difficult.”
The record offers encouragement for people to be their true and full selves and maintains Jo’s message: “Be who you want to be, love who you wanna love, change if you want to change. Just think with your heart instead.”
While JoLivi has always been comfortable in her own skin and a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community, this song marks her first public dialogue about her sexuality and offers an invitation for listeners to embrace their own truths. The Hawaii-born singer-songwriter pulls inspiration from each new adventure in her life, explaining, “It is important for me to evolve and explore new things as an artist and always find the silver lining in things I go through in my life and how I make music.”
“Love Who You Wanna Love” is JoLivi’s latest release since her collaboration with White Sea on the “Chains (White Sea Remix).” Both tracks follow her EP, Just For You, released earlier this year.
