In a two-column article, \newpage goes to the start of the next column, which might be on the same page. How can I force moving to an entirely new page?

I tried:

\newpage 
~
\newpage

This works in the left column, but in the right column it jumps to the right column of the next page. I am looking for a solution that always jumps to the left column of the new page.

Try with \clearpage:

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
%---------------- show page layout. don't use in a real document!
\usepackage{showframe}
\renewcommand\ShowFrameLinethickness{0.15pt}
\renewcommand*\ShowFrameColor{\color{red}}
%---------------------------------------------------------------%
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-3]
\clearpage  % <---
\lipsum[4-9]
\end{document}
