Our buddy Joe King stopped by VH1 headquarters yesterday morning to make an appearance on Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan. Before he performed his new single “Need A Woman By Friday,” he shared a story with BMBL correspondent and VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown host Jim Shearer about when he first realized it might be a hit for him.
“When I was writing this song, it was my birthday,” King explained. “I wrote the chorus first at my house, and my little 7-year-old comes running out of her room. I knew it was a good thing, cause she was like ‘Need A Woman By…’”
Well, now people of all ages are out singing that very same chorus as they eagerly await the drop of The Fray guitarist’s new EP, Breaking. That collection will drop on April 23, and King also confessed to Jim Shearer that a full length is on the way “probably early fall.” Until then, enjoy this exceptional performance of one of this year’s catchiest jams.
