Album Review

On his debut album Ghetto Love, soulful crooner Jaheim runs the gamut of a wide variety of R&B styles, showcasing himself as a multi-faceted artist. Despite the ghetto posturing, one listen to the album reveals the baritone-voiced singer to have more in common with the likes of Will Downing or even a more street version of Luther Vandross, with song styles reminiscent of Keith Sweat, especially with his ample use of female vocalists. The album is something of a musical journey. It begins with mid- to up-tempo material, from the '70s sounding "Let It Go" (complete with a horn section) to the album's smoldering first single, "Could It Be," arguably one of the best R&B songs in years. Other breezy tunes follow, such as "Happiness," the jeep-flavored "Lil N***a Ain't Mine" (almost comically tacking an obviously sensitive issue), "Finders Keepers," and "Just In Case," which resonates as a perfect summer jam. The album is unfortunately weighted down by some unremarkable material, but thankfully is salvaged at its close, when Jaheim sings more traditional fare, allowing his gorgeous voice to truly shine. Most memorable among these tunes are "Love Is Still Here," which, unfortunately, is more of an interlude than anything else; "Ready, Willing & Able"; and the church-organ lullaby "For Moms." As a final and remarkable note, Jaheim never stoops to use foul language. The music is just as effective the way it is, without the need to degenerate itself with obscenities. Despite some dull moments, this is a first-rate debut from a very promising artist. ~ Jose F. Promis, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Only one Jaheim

I can't believe no one has written a review yet. But this CD is worth buying hands down. He has a sound different than everybody else which is what I like in an artist. So add this to your collection. My personal favorites: -Just In Case -Heaven In My Eyes -Remarkable -Anything

Come on now folks...

This was one incredible break out album. We used to call this our "pre-funk" disk...nothing like these grooves to get you in the mood for dancing! 'Could it be', a song wondering if you could like a fine man for real. Remarkable...a love song that will make you melt. 'Just in case', a daddy makin' plans. I loved it when it came out, and I love it now. Thank you Itunes for finaly putting it on your list of albums...You can't go wrong with this one, ever.

His best!

Anyone know why this album is $18.99??

His grandfather, Victor Hoagland, sang with many top groups, including the Drifters, and their family reunions were big songfests. Singing at family reunions and local talent shows...
