Editors’ Notes

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.

Customer Reviews

Reliable Joe

Leave it to Joe to keep it real. 563 - Mr. Reliable brings that sound his true fans come to love from him. He may throw in a few collabs here and there, thats fine, but out of no where he writes a whole album and features no one but himself. That's a true artist catering to his core fans! In this album, he collabs with Too Short and Fantasia. And if you're interested, BestBuy (2 bonus tracks) & Target (1 bonus track) also have exclusives you can probably download separately after purchasing the album from iTunes. I may be bias here though but what do you expect from a lifetime Joe fan? ;-)

PS: If you're new to Joe and like his sound, go on and get his previous albums, you won't be disappointed.


most underrated of all time… favorite forever…no one will ever be greater…keep putting out the pure and smooth slow jams. I appreciate what you do for true R&B!!!! Fan since the first time I saw you in the summer of 09….didn't think it was possible to sound better live than on a CD until JOE!!

Rather have love

Joe never disappoints his fans!!!! Once again, a smash hit.
