Product Overview

Jaheim's first two albums, Ghetto Love and Still Ghetto, have been smash hits-each platinum, each Top 5 R&B/Hip-Hop, each Top 10 Pop-and spun off four Top 10 R&B/Top 30 Pop hits. Sexy, soulful R&B with a hardcore hip-hop edge, Jaheim is classic and ghetto. And he proves it again on his first album in three years, Ghetto Classics.

GHETTO CLASSICS is Jaheim's third effort, an album heavily rooted in traditional R&B, and also one of his strongest. Don't be misled by the "traditional" tag, however. Like most contemporary R&B, Jaheim's music is deeply influenced by hip-hop, and the layered, top-tier production from KayGee (of Naughty by Nature) gives this album a smart, sophisticated sheen that is undeniably 2006. The appearance of rapper Jadakiss on the single "Everytime I Think About Her" further updates the sound.
But the ghost of Marvin Gaye is certainly milling about GHETTO CLASSICS in the form of the smooth, sensual vibe, the album's themes (love songs about commitment, devotion, and family), and in Jaheim's expressive, well-controlled romantic croon. In short, Jaheim mixes the traditional with the contemporary in perfect measure, making his solid third release a sure bet for fans of old- and new-school soul.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.90) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "New Jersey native Jaheim Hoagland is pushing hip-hop soul toward perfection."
Uncut (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] warm, subtle set of midtempo cruisers, dotted with stabs at mass appeal but at heart testifying that 'Never Too Much' is the wellspring."
