Charlie Wilson Announces Tour with KEM & Joe + New Album ‘Forever Charlie’

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.”

Throwback Thursday: Joe – ‘The Love Scene’

” ’69 was a very good year do you remember, if you know what I mean my dear.” Remember when R&B was sexy and sensual as this?!?

Joe is a R&B singer-songwriter and record producer.  He had breakthrough success with his second album, All That I Am in 1997. The album, reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart, and No. 4 on the Billboard R&B chart. “The Love Scene” was released as a single off of the same album.

The track is about having a sexy love making session alluding to those often shown in a movie. “Let’s make a love scene, steamy and blue, erotic memories for an audience of two, and we’ll make a love scene, let the foreplay begin, and replay each moment again and again and again,” croons Joe. The video, shown in black and white, features the singer as a film director trying to get the perfect scene for his actors until he, frustrated, takes a break to make a love scene of his own.

Enjoy the classic above.

Video: Joe – ‘If You Lose Her’

Joe iylh-still-1

R&B veteran Joe returns with the anticipated music video for his latest single “If You Lose Her,” off his No. 1 R&B album Bridges.

A fan favorite off the singers 11th studio LP, the single speaks to a man about the consequences of neglect through their own selfish pleasures.

The Bille Woodruff-directed visual was filmed at the historic Million Dollar Theatre in Los Angeles. The video features a unique element, with international sand artist Kseniya Simonova creating an elaborate sand story that beautifully depicts the thought provoking lyrics. The sand story is juxtaposed with scenes of Joe performing the emotional ballad to an audience of two lovers facing a crossroads.

“If You Lose Her” was the No. 1 Most Added song at Urban AC radio last week. On September 13 you can catch Joe performing on ‘Verses & Flow‘ at 10pm ET/9c on TV One.
