Having put out more than 10 albums in 20 years, JOE has become one of R&B’s most accomplished and popular singers with seven Grammy nods along the span of his career. Singles such as “All The Things (Your Man Won’t Do),” “All That I Am,” “No One Comes Close” and “I Wanna Know” established Joe as a bona fide hit-maker who has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Moreover, his work with Mariah Carey (“Thank God I Found You”), Big Pun (“Still Not A Player”) and G-Unit (“Wanna Get To Know You”), shows that Joe is a much sought-after collaborator with some of music’s biggest and best artists. Joe’s most recent offering, Double Back:  Evolution of R&B, debuted as the #1 R&B album in the country on Billboard’s “R&B Albums” & #4 “Top 200” charts this past summer. With that success, Double Back has produced a top five single with its first release “I’d Rather Have A Love”.  With a new label deal in place PLAID TAKEOVER/BMG CHRYSALIS and new management, with veteran music executive Gerald “Plaid” Isaac, JOE is already gearing up for a successful 2014.  The top-selling R&B singer is currently in the studio putting together magnificent songs in preparation for his new commercial album 2014, summer release entitled “BRIDGES”. The lead single & video, “Love & Sex Pt. 2,” features the incredible and equally beautiful Kelly Rowland of X-FACTOR/Destiny’s Child fame and is currently impacting radio and TV heavily.  In support of his new release(s) JOE will be touring the US, Europe, Asia and abroad.


DJ June NY Club Chartニューヨーク・クラブチャート – December 3, 2013

dj-june_chartHow you enjoying holiday season? For this week, I give you all time party classic joints. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane!

1         I Just Wanna Love You – Jay Z

ファレルのThe Neptunesがひっぱりダコだった時期のプロデュース作品。Jay Zを筆頭としたロカフェラも絶頂期。NYのヒップホップが1番きらびやかだった頃の代表作です。懐かしいです。こういうのもっと作って欲しいです……。今では当時の Jay Z といったヒップホップは日本で滅多にかからないとか…さみしいです。こちらではティーンの子供でもみんな知ってますよ。やはり良い曲は良い、年齢関係ないです! 今ではTwerkリミックスがパーティでよくかかります。

One of the Neptunes’s signature songs featuring a chorus sung by Pharrell Williams released as the first single from Jay-Z’s 2000 album “The Dynasty: Roc La Familia.” The popularity of NY hip hop was the highest back then. I still love songs in that era. I heard that hip hop songs by rappers like Jay Z are not being played these days in Japan. Over here in the States even young teenage kids know his hits. His music is timeless! “I Just Wanna Love You – Twerk Remix” is on the rise now.

2          Still Not A Player  – Big Pan feat. Joe

1998年に出た、今は亡きBig Punの名曲。ノリの良いリズム、 Joeが歌うコーラス、特にニューヨーカーはBig Pun好きなので、これはパーティの定番です。そんなことを書いてたらHot97でいきなり”Still Not A Player”がかかった!ビックリ…….!

Big Pun’s classic song in 1998 featuring Joe’s smooth vocals still dominates New York party scene. While I’m writing this chart listening to Hot 97 starts playing this song on the radio! See, what I mean, classic!!

3          Killing Me Softly – Lauryn Hill


The song Fugees covered on their 1996 album The Score, with Lauryn Hill singing the lead vocals is really popular still today among ladies. I usually shut off the turntable and let the audience sings the chorus. Every time I play this song people react so much that makes me a happy DJ. I was looking forward to Lauryn’s Concert scheduled on a day before Thanksgiving but unfortunately cancelled. I miss her!
