Fly Interview: Singer Joe Talks New Album, Bryson Tiller, Tory Lanez & more with SFPL TV

[anvplayer video=”4243418″]

If you really want a good opinion on today’s state of R&B, singer Joe Thomas is the one to speak to about the flow of music now in 2016.

This veteran singer has a new album on the way titled #MyNameIsJoeThomas, which drops this Friday, November 11. On the project, Joe says that he stays true to him and his writing, which he has always been labeled quite often as a “hater” (he laughs during the interview) due to the lyrics and meaning of the song, that could possibly affect relationships but yet, still telling the truth about what goes on in certain cases.

Speaking more on the platform of today’s R&B/Soul, Thomas says the only problem that he has with music today is the lack of creativity, forcing artists to be on the repetitive side, therefore, stunting one’s creative side. At the same time, Joe did boast artist like; Bryson Tiller, Jeremih and Tory Lanez as they new wave of what is considered Rhythm and Blues, realizing that times have changed.

To add, Joe says:

I think R&B has sort of taken a backseat to the influence that they could have on the generation.

Joe also touched on taking care of himself, his voice, style, Top 3 albums of his choice and more.

Take a look at the FULL interview above.

You can get ‘#MyNameIsJoeThomas’ on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and Spotify, just to name a few.
