SoMo (known to friends and family as Joseph Somers-Morales) signed with Republic Records in October 2013 after amassing 50 million+ views on YouTube with crafty cover versions. The 26-year-old released his debut single “Ride” shortly thereafter and the soulful sex jam has continued to work its way up iTunes ever since.
The suitably steamy video dropped today (January 15) and it cements SoMo’s status as the second coming of Robin Thicke. Like the “Blurred Lines” singer, the newcomer can make panties drop with a single glance and sure knows how to capitalize on raunchy lyrical content by getting physical with a smoking hot co-star. Watch up top.
Does SoMo have a hit on his hands? Have your say in the comments below.
