Land   Verenigde Staten

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

Seems like your heart stops working
The minute they close the curtain
You take off your mask and take off your costume
And if anyone asks you're
Taking a smoke break, drinking some coffee
But everyone knows what you're doing
Seems like the bus moves slower
Just cause you got somewhere to go, so
You take a few pills in Beverly Hills
But if anyone asks you've got a prescription
You got an addiction
Who do you think that you're fooling

John Doe
I just want the John I know
Once you put the drinks on hold
Maybe you can come back home, John Doe

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh

Uh, everybody's addicted to something
Everybody gotta grip onto something
Even if it's just the feel to response of appeal
Maybe once, maybe twice, maybe hundreds of times
Hundreds of times
Without it, it's just harder to function at times
You race to the bottom of every single bottle
As if there was someone or something to find
You're struggling in your mind and you tell yourself lie after lie
Til you get to the point where it's no longer private
That people that you work with notice the signs
When you walk in the room it gets noticeably quiet
So you break up the silence
You say you've been at the gym
But the way that you look, can't blame on the diet
So what you hiding

John Doe
I just want the John I know
Once you put the drinks on hold
Maybe you can come back home, John Doe

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh

Yeah, I've probably had too many things, smashed too many freaks
Had too much to drop me, had too much to drink
Left the club, ended up in custody
Random drug test, passed it luckily
My girl broke up with me, cause she walked in suddenly
With a woman up under me
I told her: wait, it ain't what it looks like
I must have slipped and fell, clumsy me
Well, at least I admit it
Cause the worst you could do is to do it
And not be man enough to say that you did it
That's just how you prevent it
Well, I ain't no different, I love all the money, the fame
And the parties with beautiful women
I spend so much time as an underground artist
Cause I was afraid to succumb to the business and what I'd become
But that what you'd judge, I become
The path with the greatest resistance
That's how the tables can turn when they pivot
And change you perspective and flip your entire position
My whole life I've been dying to wish
And to live and experience everything possible
When I told them my dreams, they just said it ain't logical
Now, I can see it, it's optical

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh. oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh

John Doe
I just want the John I know
Once you put the drinks on hold
Maybe you can come back home, John Doe
