De Amerikaanse rapper en producer Bobby Ray Simons brengt in 2010 zijn eerste album, The Adventures Of Bobby Ray uit. Hij spendeerde ruim twee jaar aan zijn debuut en werkte samen met ondermeer T.I., Eminem en Bruno Mars. Met die laatste debuteert hij in 2010 in de Top 40 als Nothin’ On You hem direct een nummer 1-notering oplevert.

Ook samenwerkingen met Hayley Williams (op Airplanes, #4), Rivers Cuomo (Magic, #6) en met Jessie J (Price Tag, #2) leveren hem dikke hits op. Zijn tweede album, Strange Cloud, is in veel opzichten minder succesvol in ons land. Er komt slechts één single, So Good (waarop ook Lil’ Wayne te horen is), in de Top 40 met een bescheiden 35e plaats als beste resultaat.

Eind 2013 verschijnt het derde studioalbum, Underground Luxury. Van dat album wordt John Doe, samen met Priscilla Renea, Alarmschijf en zijn zesde Top 40-hit.

Songtekst

(Hayley Williams)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)

(B.o.B)
Yeah
I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
Cause after all the partyin and smashin and crashin
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
And when youre staring at that phone in your lap
And you hoping but them people never call you back
But thats just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravell
And they sayin what would you wish for
If you had one chance
So airplane airplane sorry I’m late
I’m on my way so dont close that gate
If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight
And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night

(Hayley Williams)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)

(B.o.B)
Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job, before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was tryin to get into the subway
And back when I was rappin for the hell of it
But now a days we rappin to stay relevant
I'm guessin that if we can make some wishes outta airplanes
Then maybe yo maybe I’ll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when aint nobody listened to my mix tape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for the Cada, whats up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this s***
So here I stand and then again I say
I’m hopin we can make some wishes outta airplanes?

(Hayley Williams)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
(wish right now) (wish right now)

(B.o.B.)
I could really use a wish right now
I could really use a wish right now
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now
A wish right now
A wish right now
