Watch: JOE Releases New Video “Our Anthem”


In honor of Black History Month, R&B veteran JOE has released a new video for a song he has titled “Our Anthem.”

A soulful and reflective track, with socially conscious visuals, the multi-Grammy nominated artist starts out singing The Star Spangled Banner and later borrows from Otis Redding’s classic, “Try A Little Tenderness.”  Taking a stand to help improve our relations with one another, Joe simply asks, “Is this red white and blue, or black brown and white? / Ask yourself, is it wrong, or is it right?”

Along with the release he shared a short message, “Sometimes a walk and a little reflection helps put things into perspective! THIS IS “OUR ANTHEM”! #OURANTHEM #TENDERNESS w/love from me to you Black History Month!”

JOE is currently working on his next album, the follow-up to 2014’s Bridges, which is expected to be released later this year.

Throwback Thursday: Chico DeBarge feat. Joe – ‘No Guarantee (Remix)’

Chico DeBarge is a R&B singer and the younger brother of the members of the popular Motown family act DeBarge. Unlike the rest of his DeBarge siblings, Chico is the only male DeBarge that does not sing in the falsetto range; he sings tenor.

“No Guarantee (Remix)” was a bonus track off his 1997 album Long Time No See. The single featured an assist from frequent collaborator and R&B crooner Joe. Before releasing this album, DeBarge had served a 10 year jail sentence. Upon his release, he decided to start over and use his new music to be introspective. As an underrated classic, the “No Guarantee” remix proved to be a sultry and soulful feel good track.

Enjoy the throwback above!

Charlie Wilson Forever Charlie Tour

Charlie Wilson truly does seem to embody that feeling of forever. At least on stage, at 60+ years old, he looks like he could be tearing down arenas for another 30 years.

Today, the iconic R&B legend announced that he will be hitting the road on a new national tour titled, “The Forever Charlie Tour,” kicking off February 12, 2015.

The 27-date trek will hit cities all across the U.S., including Detroit, Chicago, Nashville, Houston and many more before wrapping up on March 27 in Oakland, CA. The tour is named after Wilson’s upcoming album Forever Charlie, which is slated to hit stores on January 27 via RCA Records. The album has been preceded by the smooth new single “Goodnight Kisses,” which was recently the #1 most added song at Urban AC Radio.

In addition to Uncle Charlie, R&B vocalists KEM and Joe will be joining him for what is set to be a very successful tour.

“I am so glad to be on the road once again and to bring my show to so many cities across the country. It’s going to be a special night for all the ladies that will join me and my special guests!” says Charlie Wilson. “I am looking forward to sharing the stage with my two talented friends Kem and Joe. They are both artists that I admire and am honored to have them on my tour. We are planning a show the audience won’t ever forget.”
