"I missed you even while you were here,” the 24-year-old wrote. “I will miss you infinitely more now that you're gone. Thank you for holding on as long as you did. I know you tried your best.”

JoJo, whose real name is Joanna Levesque, made a comeback this summer, releasing three new singles nearly a decade after the release of her sophomore album, The High Road. She had previously been locked in a longstanding legal battle with her former label Blackground Records.
