After selling more than 10 million albums worldwide, and releasing a critically acclaimed album, Doubleback: Evolution of R&B, last year, R&B singer Joe ended his relationship with his label Massenburg Media. Luckily, he was able to quickly regroup and prepare a new album for fans on his own label, Plaid Take-Over.
“Love and Sex Part II,” featuring Kelly Rowland, was the lead single for the album, titled Bridges, which is in stores. “It’s just a remix to the original ‘Love and Sex’ with the Fantasia verses, but I wanted to keep the momentum going,” Joe explained.
The title Bridges is a reference to relationships that we build and burn. It’s a subject that was heavy on his mind when he made the album after parting ways with his long-term manager Kedar Massenburg because Joe said he doesn’t believe in burning bridges.
Joe describes when he did burn a bridge in the August 2014 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
