About Trey Songz
Tremaine Aldon Neverson, better known by his stage name Trey Songz, was born on November 28, 1984, in Petersburg, VA. Raised a military brat, he recognized his vocal abilities at the age of 14. Reluctant to sing, he began performing with encouragement by friends and family. Record producer Troy Taylor discovered Songz during a talent show, which led him to a record contract with Atlantic Records. I Gotta Make It, his debut album, was released by Atlantic Records in 2005. The top 20 single “Can’t Help but Wait” came on his follow-up album, Trey Day. The track “Say Aah” (with Fabolous) from Songz’s third album, Ready, reached at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his first top 10 hit. Songz released Ready in 2009. At the 2008 Grammy Awards, Ready was up for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. From his fourth studio album, Passion, Pain & Pleasure (2010), Songz’s highest-charting song to date, “Bottoms Up” (with Nicki Minaj), was released the following year. He has sold more than 25 million singles and albums globally and put out a total of eight studio albums.
Jaheim Hoagland, known simply as Jaheim, is an R&B singer whose soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics have etched an indelible mark in the music industry. Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Jaheim emerged as a captivating artist in the early 2000s, capturing audiences with his smooth vocals that effortlessly blend classic R&B with a contemporary flair. He was signed by Naughty by Nature's Kaygee to Divine Mill Records in 2000, and released his debut album Ghetto Love in 2001. His second effort, Still Ghetto (2002), contains the hit singles "Put That Woman First" (2003) and "Fabulous" (2003), both of which achieved platinum success. Jaheim's third album, Ghetto Classics, was released on February 14, 2006, debuting at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, and selling over 153,000 copies in its first week. To date Jaheim has sold 5 million records worldwide and received three Grammy nominations. His rich, velvety voice resonates with authenticity, drawing listeners into stories of love, life's struggles, and heartfelt emotions.
About K Michelle
Since her aptly titled debut album, Rebellious Soul, K. Michelle has consistently offered her fans her pain, her desires, her challenges, and her love without a filter…and she’s okay with that. For almost a decade K. Michelle has been a vocalist whose imprint and contribution to R&B is in alignment with not only her influences but singers whose artistry has the ability to connect to the listener’s soul. K. Michelle’s body of work is a testament to her experiences over time and a sonic journal that has chronicled her growth. Past aside, she is presently poised to speak her latest truth on her self proclaimed last R&B project, I’m the Problem. It boldly frames what she has now come to understand as her vantage point as she enters the next chapter of her career and her life. I’m the Problem is an affirmation. And much like she started her career, she continues to stand in her confidence while laying her heart bare to have a conversation with her fans about why being the problem isn’t always a negative. It’s self-care. Regardless of what the next album is defined as, I'm the Problem is unapologetically R&B. It is among the lexicon of what happens when an artist can write about life over instrumentation. Through this offering K. Michelle, simply being Kimberly Michelle, is an alpha female and a country girl who idolizes Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston, loves Morgan Wallen, cries to Mary J. Blige’s music and wants her fans to feel good about the music she makes.
