Joe Thomas - Why Just Be Friends

Tags: Joe
The Stereotypes
New Man

Happy to be free from his former label home at Jive Records, singer Joe has wasted no time in getting his name back on the music scene.  Going by his full name of Joe Thomas, the 15-year veteran has major marketing underway for the release of his forthcoming album, New Man, on September 23.  Along with the previously-featured E.R., Joe has released a second single, which sounds a lot like what we’re used to hearing from the Georgia native.  Why Just Be Friends is a classic-sounding mid-tempo jam that should remind listeners of past hits such as Still Not A Player, Ride Wit U and Wanna Get To Know You.  With The Stereotypes’ beat setting the mood, Why Just Be Friends should have no problem finding an audience at radio.  Check back with DJBooth later this month as Joe drops in for an interview with DJ Z.
