Joe-Ain't Nothin' Like Me (Jive)

After a self imposed hiatus, R&B crooner Joe has returned with a nothing short of a masterpiece.  After a litany of hits, including “Don’t Wanna Be a Player,” “I Wanna Know,” the Georgia native has returned with the collection, Ain’t Nothin’ Like Me

Led off by the breezy lead single, “If I Was Your Man,” Joe has revisited the tried, tested and true formula of passionate pleas for love.  In recent past, Joe has been the R&B champion at love songs.  This album is no different. 

Not far behind is the Sean Garrett (Mariah Carey, Beyonce) written and produced hip hop heavy track, “Where You At.”  With Garrett being the go-to guy in R&B, this track has the same style, with its pulsating bass coupled with Joe’s apologetic tone. 

The hits don’t stop there.  Other tracks checking in on Joe’s sixth studio album include the Bryan Michael Cox (Usher, Mariah Carey) “My Love,” and “Feel For You” are sure to be fan favorites. 

Longtime collaborator, producer Joshua Thompson stops by to complete the album with “Life of a Party,” Joe’s ode to fallen music industry relationships.  The beauty of album is Joe’s ability to stick to a method that has worked for him, after selling millions of records. He easily could have changed courses to adjust to mainstream music, but his loyalty to his fans will pay off. 

Once again Joe has proved that there is no other like him.
