Until Lou Reed and Metallica’s Lulu album comes out, you probably won’t hear a more musically improbable pairing this year than Joe Jonas of The Jonas Brothers and Lil Wayne, who just dropped the remix to Joe’s “Just in Love.”
Weezy continues his love streak, following up his bittersweet ballad, “How to Love,” with a verse and coda on Joe Jonas’ “Just In Love,” sticking to the strictly-love theme Joe laid out on the single.
Joe Jonas told Ryan Seacrest about his desire to work with Lil Wayne: “I’ve always been a huge fan… He’s always been one of those artists who’s been killing it for the longest time… I remember walking up to him [and introducing myself] … and he just goes, he’s like ’JOOONAS! What you doing man?’ and he gave me the biggest bro hug.”
Weezy takes the song from sultry-sexy to street, with shouts of “Young Moolah” and “Tunechi.” Wayne makes references to his prison sentence with “got my heart on lock” as well as his sexual prowess and longevity, “Makin’ love like animals/ Planet of the Apes/ All night all morning.” You heard Weezy. He’s both in love and willing to go all night, apparently.
Fast Life, Joe Jonas’ debut solo album, is out October 11.
