R&B artist Joe is scheduled to release his latest set of sultry ballads and R&B jams The Good, the Bad, the Sexy, almost two years after his last studio album, Signature, which debuted at an admirable No. 7 on the Billboard 200. Joe's seductive delivery and uninhibited, provocative atmospherics define much of the crooner's forthcoming album.

The inaugural single from The Good, the Bad, the Sexy has already peaked at No. 50 on the Billboard R&B Hot 100 as anticipation for the album rises among R&B enthusiasts and Joe fanatics alike.

Joe's The Good, the Bad, the Sexy comes out Oct. 18.
