"The Making Of A Man"... With his smooth, sonorous tone, Jaheim is the forerunner and torch-carrier of today's soul-originated R&B.


Jaheim has released three albums over the past five years. His 2001 platinum debut, “Ghetto Love”, 2002’s platinum, sophomore album, “Still Ghetto” and in 2006, he released “Ghetto Classics” which went Gold.

After taking time off following the release of Ghetto Classics, Jaheim returns with a renewed focus on the direction in which he wants to take his career. As he says, "I've been working in the studio over the past year on my milestone project, one that reflects the change and transition I've gone through." The past 12 months have been full of revelations for Jaheim and for the first time in his life, he finds himself truly in love.

He now returns with his latest project, “The Makings of a Man” on Atlantic Records. The new album, “The Makings of a Man” reflects a significant change in Jaheim. A personal near-tragedy helped put things in very clear perspective for the performer, who miraculously emerged virtually unscathed from a recent car accident. "You have to evaluate yourself, and that's what I did. Being a man means to walk like Christ. You have to want that change. If you sacrifice, he'll give you everything you are looking for. When you're taken through the storm, the only thing you can do is write about it... get your pain off. So I'm going to take this story and change somebody's life. There's a song on here for everybody."

Included in "The Makings of a Man" is the album's first single, "Never." The track is a nod to the age-old adage, 'You should never say never'.. Jaheim explains "It's about that relationship you thought you would never find." This impressive album also includes tracks with some of music's heaviest hitters. Keyshia Cole turns up on "I've Changed," a ballad that also speaks to the theme of the things we do for new-found love. The project also sees collaborations with R. Kelly on "Hush," and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds contributes "You Don't Have a Clue." Jaheim honors classic R&B by paying homage to two of the genre's favorites. He puts an updated spin on the Bobby Womack classic "If You Think You're Lonely".
