Maybe it’s the buttery Teddy Pendergrass-ish voice, or those lips, but I’m a huge Jaheim fan. My sister put me on to Still Ghetto some years back and I found his music to be uber-refreshing. But nowadays, when you talk about R&B crooners, you only hear about Trey, Chris, Frank, Ne-Yo and…?
Maybe Jaheim never really became a household name because of the fact that he was driving in that hood meets R&B lane that a lot of people try to steer clear from (you see Trey Songz changed lanes while he could), and maybe people nowadays just prefer songs with a little too much upfront sex in them, because his career didn’t and hasn’t taken off the way it should have. That’s still my guy though!
