Joe Jonas' first solo single has finally been revealed in a new song called "See No More". Soon after the middle of the Jonas Brothers' song debuted on radio, it got mixed reactions from fans; some called it "addictive," but there are others who were simply not impressed with it.

Among those supportive comments, one comment posted on Twitter read, "See No More is on REPEAT.. can't get enough of this song.. my new favorite song." Another fan, meanwhile, dropped the criticism, "Joe could get it, but not feeling this song. Sounds like any other Chris Brown song."

Following young brother Nick Jonas who did side project with The Administration in 2009, Joe ditches some of the band's pop tunes which make them Disney friendly these past years. Instead, he infuses R&B riffs which were inspired by Chris Brown, which is not quite surprising given that they co-wrote the song together.

Joe sings about falling victim to a love-gone-wrong case in this fresh material. "I don't want to wait for you/ I don't want to wake up thinking, hoping you'll get it right this time/ 'Cause you know that you so cold/ I don't want to see no more," he wails his shattered heart. "I used to be afraid of letting go/ Right now I need you to set me free/ I can see it in your eyes."

Talking to E! News about his first offering, Joe explains, "The song is about a relationship ending and you're trying to get over it, but at the same time you've got these mixed feelings [and] you're fighting everything of seeing that person. It sounds like a sad song, but it carries a cool beat to it."

"It kinda just fell together. Me and Chris were just hanging out one day listening to each other's music that he was working on, I was working on, and all of a sudden it was just electric," he said further when recalling the creative process with Breezy. "I've always been a fan of his music."

In a separate interview with Chicago radio station 96.3 FM, he told the DJs he's grateful with his brothers' supports toward him. "Having my brothers' support in this whole project is the biggest thing for me and the fact that they're loving the music and everything," he gushed.

Big brother Kevin Jonas wrote on his page on June 3, "So pumped for joe!!! congrats brother." Nick, meanwhile, chose to re-tweet joe's message, "This is seriously one of the greatest days of my life. Your responses to the #SeeNoMore are making my morning!" Prior to that, he posted, "Just watched the #seenomore teaser 10000000 times... So excited and happy for my bro! Love you dude!"

Joining a list of Joe's supporters was Breezy herself. The "Yeah 3x" singer wrote on his own page to congratulate the ex-boyfriend of Ashley Greene on his first single. "Make sure y'all go support @joejonas new single "see no more", Congrats bro!" the R&B star wrote earlier on Friday.

The single is confirmed to appear in Joe's upcoming solo project which is expected to come out in the United States on September 6. After the song debut, fans can expect a music video premiere sometime soon. "I've been working with director now to come up with the concept and the entire idea of what it is for me," Joe once said.

"I think it's more so about how the emotions and the feelings that are going through and how you're dealing with them and just displaying them in physical actions, so it'll be the first really thought-out video that I've done."

kendra, I dont recall Joe saying he could do so much better without his brothers. sounds like to me, he just wanted to venture into some new territory, the r&b territory, & Im personally satisfied with it. but don't be bitter. jonas brothers are still making music together. & I can't wait for that either. :)

y'all are just being rude now, particularly you amanda. if you don't like the song that's fine & well, were all entitled to our own opinion. but you can't imply he sucks on his own after hearing only one song. also some people like nick's voice, & although I like nick's voice, I and my friends much prefer Joe's voice & all of us think he sounds great. but it's only natural some will prefer one's voice over another. I just think some of you are bitter because you miss "Jonas Brothers" but get over it. let them live their lives. none of you like being told what to do. so dont think you can control Kevin, Nick, & Joe. let them do what makes them happy & stop behaving like a bitchy girlfriend.

Kendra when over the last 2 yrs he has been writing his music did he claim to be better then Kevin and Nick. He didn't he claim to be. In fact he said that the boys were taking a break to do there own thing and are still planing on a CD together. I'm not saying this to be mean because I'm a Jonas fan myself. But, every Jonas fan needs to realize that when they go out on their own they want their own sound and not sound the way they do together as a band. See No More is an amazing song and he sounds wonderful vocal wise. He wants to show his age in his music and that is what he is doing. If your a true Jonas fan you'll support them in anyway with what they want to do sound wise in this industry just let them be themselves and we will get great music in the end.

Reviews were mixed but I'm going to weigh in on the negative side. Didn't care for it at all. Not sure why he thought he could be so much better without his brothers.
