"Anything" is a song by American singer JoJo from her second studio album, The High Road. Written by Beau Dozier, Mischke Butler, and Justin Trugman and released as the album's third and final single in May 2007, the track contains a sample from Toto's 1982 song "Africa"—a former number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100—written by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro. The song premiered on March 19, 2006 on The Second JammX Kids All Star Dance Special. The single was the second official single from The High Road in European countries and was released in the United Kingdom on May 7, 2007; it began gaining airplay there on March 24, 2007, eventually debuting on BBC Radio 1's playlist under the B-list section. JoJo was in the UK during the first two weeks of May to promote the single; she performed at London's G-A-Y on May 12, and appeared on GMTV on May 8 as part of a series of radio and television interviews. "Anything" remained in the top forty of the UK Singles Chart for three weeks.
