Doubleback: Evolution of R&B
Joe is an unabashed romantic. For his 10th studio outing, the Georgia-born singer builds on his history of writing tender love songs. The lead single, "I'd Rather Have a Love," marries his stirring, emotional voice to an old-school soul groove. Elsewhere, he teams up with powerhouse vocalist Fantasia for the lavish, string-laden ballad "Love & Sex." The tempo perks up with the peppy, acoustic guitar–infused "Magic City" and the raw groove of "Baby," but at its heart DoubleBack: Evolution of R&B finds Joe luxuriating in a romantic mood.
