BMG/Sony REDWithout warning, Joe released a cover of Adele’s new smash hit single, “Hello.”
In a black-and-white clip, posted on YouTube, the crooner sits at his piano and performs the somber ballad. Joe, who is currently preparing his next album slated for a 2016 release, kept the original lyrics in tact for his soulful rendition.
Fans on Twitter seem to appreciate his unexpected cover — one user commented, “Joe you’re bad as EVER! That VOICE! I LOVE you MAN! TOTALLY UNDERRATED,” while another chimed in with: “Joe murdered that. Wow.”
In related news, Joe will be joining Boys II Men for an upcoming mini-concert tour in South Africa. The entertainers will kick things off at the Cape Town International Convention on December 11 then travel to Druban before closing in Johannesburg on December 15.
