Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The debut album from Jaheim, Ghetto Love is sexy, soulful R&B mixed with hardcore hip-hop. Executive produced by Kaygee, who's propelled Zhane, Next and his own group Naughty By Nature to platinum success, Jaheim's Ghetto Love tells it like it is. Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (3/02)

Amazon.com

Fans of tried-and-true gutbucket R&B have much cause for joy this spring: there's a new crop of down-home, take-no-prisoners love-men and -women in town, and leading the pack is Jaheim, a roughneck Romeo from New Jersey. Signed to ex-Naughty By Nature DJ Kay-Gee's Divine Mill imprint (and with production mainly by Mr. "Hip Hop Hooray"), Jaheim's tender-but-tough sound harks back to Teddy Pendergrass: just listen to the sexy moan that kicks off the single "Could It Be." Not even remotely shabby. As this debut's title indicates, Ghetto Love overflows with rough-hewn odes to romance on the raw side of town. In this case, that means songs about giving as much love to one's niggas as to one's bitches, denying paternity, and rhymes about Hennessey. It might look clichéd on paper, but Jaheim is skilled enough to transcend trite truisms. On the smoky "Looking For Love" and the finger-snapping "Let It Go," he earns his stripes, making his mark with a taut CD that has an old playa's soul and a new jack's swagger. --Amy Linden

I'm not one for buying the "what's hot" CDs. BUT -- based on the strength of his single, COULD IT BE, and having the opportunity to hear him sing live, I bought the new CD by Jaheim. When I heard him sing live, they let him let loose for a couple of minutes. Talk about shivers going up and down my spine .... those vocal cords were going! It ought to be against the law for a guy THAT young to have that type of lungs on him!! Talk about a throwback to the days when people knew how to SANG!!! Okay, okay I admit, I wasn't feeling the video too much, nothing really special about it - but that voice? Whew, lawd have mercy! Boyfriend got potential for be around for a long while - that is if they market him right. Gone and let that man sang! This CD is tight! Most of the cuts are good and groovable - I know, not a word. Someone gonna get slapped silly, you hear me? Boyfriend had some major backing behind him with making this album. I gotta give #'s 6, 7, 8, 12, 18-20 special props. I especially love the remix (#21) to COULD IT BE. My only complaints are that the songs are not long enough. Put it this way, the CD gets the LONG DISTANCE TRAVEL award - can't hit the road without it in my player.... Now you can't get any better than that in my book. Could this be a new trend we're seeing? Singers who can actually SANG? I certainly hope so. Cause heaven only knows, we've been bamboozled enough.....

First heard Jahiem on a tune from the Bait Soundtrack call Remarkable the song blew me away.. There hasnt been a singer in a long time that have sing from the soul like this young gentleman upon hearing that tune.. I was highly anticipating his debut CD I must say that CD was worth waiting for this CD went way beyond my expectations.. I knew the CD was going to be nice but i really didnt figured it was going to be truly one of the best r&b Cds so far this year.. Jahiem is a throwback to the old school r&b/soul singers one in particular one of the greatest r&b singers of all times Teddy Pendergrass.. You can certainly hear that Mr. Pendergrass have a tremendous influence on his music.. Teddy Pendergrass influence is evident on such tracks as one of the best ballads on the Cd Waiting On You, Forever, Happiness , Remarkable all these tunes are excellent tunes and it will showcase Jahiem's unbelievable voice.. Other highlights on a fanastic CD: Heaven In My Eyes, Anything( Featuring Next) which is my favorite song on the entire CD, Ghetto Love..
If you love real soul music this is the CD for you .. Hats off to Producer Kay GEE of the Naughty By Nature fame.. You really found something special in this young man Jahiem.. Ghetto Love is a raw, soulful musical experience that you soon will not forget.. Pick it up folks think you will love this

I have to admit, when I first saw this song on BET, I did not like it too much. After a few more listens to "Could It Be" and a little convincing from a reviewer "Tony", I decided to purchase "Ghetto Love". This CD definitely has a rough edge to it. It reminds me of Profyle's "Nothin' But Drama". You would think Jaheim was a hardcore rapper when you see him, but he has a little somethin' going on with this CD. Kaygee, of Naughty By Nature fame, handles most of the production and does a good job. Too my surprise, Jaheim really impresses with the slow songs: "Remarkable" w/Terry Dexter actually was on the "Bait" soundtrack, "Anything" w/Next, "Waitin' On You" w/Miss Jones, "Ghetto Love", "Looking For Love" and "Ready, Willing & Able" are definitely examples of this. He also has a few good uptempo songs as well: On the remix to "Could It Be" Jaheim borrows the beat to Craig Mack's "Flava In Your Ear" and makes it a song worth listening to. "Finders Keepers" w/Lil Mo is also a nice uptempo song as well. Overall, this is a nice debut from Jaheim. He seems to be a good frontrunner for one of the leads to the new "Ghetto Soul" movement. I would definitely recommend this CD to anyone that liked Avant's "My Thoughts" CD or Profyle's "Nothin' But Drama".

"Could it Be" grabbed me by the ear like you would a child in need of discipline and made me pay attention. This man can sing!!
The ladies (Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, N'Dambi, and India.Arie)have been putting it down as of late. How very refreshing and welcoming to hear strength, power and intensity in man's voice.
Oh how desperately we've needed a man with strong vocals seperate from the styles of D'Angelo and my man Maxwell (neo soul-which I'm a massive fan of). This brother is singing soulfully, oozes power, demands you to listen. A song that gives you a good taste of such is his duet with Terry Dexter as well as Ready Willing and Able.....Whoa Jaheim, I'm ready too!!
My only suggestion is that he ease up off the ghetto fab lyrics and rise up on the more profound lyrics that his voice was apparently put here to deliver. That'll provide Jaheim longevity, I promise.
I agree with reviewer landa324 are we beginning to see a trend of people who can sing? Man I sure hope so.
Jah, you've got it brother. Let's hear some passion and some love in those lyrics, ADULT style.
