Joe Talks New Album “Bridges” Domestic Violence Rumors & R Kelly Trying To Sabotage Him

June 27, 2014  |  

Joe’s voice is practically a national treasure. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing him in concert, you know he sounds just like the records he recorded in the early nineties. A career over twenty years is bound to attract some controversy. And so we asked Joe about the domestic violence Kiely Williams (formerly of 3LW) lodged against the singer, saying he beat her mother, Joe’s former manager, when they were in a relationship, and the rumors that fellow R&B singer R Kelly was trying to sabotage his career.

And most importantly, he spoke about the music. This is what he said fans can expect from the new album.

What they’re going to get from this record is just pure, pure R&B at its core. We kinda got to go back a little bit to move R&B forward. Take some pages from the old school, like the Marvin Gayes, the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jackson’s, which was R&B music. That’s the essence of it, going back a little bit.

    This guy is very positive about everything…and the editor/media always trying to cause STRIFF with Black Artists……What about writing a head line like this “Joe is excited about new CD, looks forward in working with R. Kelly” not that’s the way it should have been written….

    joe mentioned this r kelly story what 2 or 3 years ago. an now that he has a new album out hes bringing it back up again. really joe. you havent been a label mate of r kelly’s for how many years now and youre still talking about him while his career goes on. you and other has been artist from the 90’s need to quit obsessing over Robert. dude still touring all over the place while you and other 90’s male R&B has beens who dislike him gotta do 90’s reunion shows with other has beens from the 90″s. maybe if you has beens would worry more about yourselves instead of trying to make negative press for Robert, then maybe ya’ll would still be relevant like him.

    Love him. He has been SOOOOO under-rated. I believe I have all of his music. Such a talent. I guess he doesn’t have the look that mainstream is looking for.
