Soul/R&B singer Kem has been magical in 2010. He released his third studio album âIntimacy: Album IIIâ in August, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, his highest-charting effort ever. The set is lead by the popular first single âWhy Would You Stay,â which peaked at number 19 and 14 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs and Heatseekers charts respectively. âThe release of my third album ‘Intimacy’ was my most memorable moment in 2010,â Kem tells Singersroom, who also says he had “no regrets.” Kem also co-headlined the 2010 Budweiser Superfest tour with Anthony Hamilton, which also included Jaheim, Raheem DeVaughn, and newcomer Hal Linton. Continuing the momentum into 2011, Kem says, âWeâre getting prepared to go back out on the road and do a 26-30 city tour in February.â Adding, âweâre working on a new fragrance, weâre working with the Tom Joyner Foundationâ¦Iâm sponsoring a room on the upper deck of the boat in March (2011). Weâre bringing all these young up and coming R&B artists; the hottest acts, itâs called âSoul Exposedâ and weâre just continuing to keep soul music alive. Kem, who is an advocate for uplifting others, also spoke on Chris Brown regaining his notoriety. âI donât think that our failures are final and we all should have an opportunity to recover from our mistakes, so I wish him well,â Kem tells Singersroom. âHeâs a young brother, heâs very talented, he has his whole life a head of him and my only hope is that heâs learned from the experience and that heâs better for it.â Outside of music Kem says heâs âchilling.â Adding, âIâm a dad so I chill with my kids, I like movies, I like to eat, you know I got a fat person living inside of me (laughter), so I just take it easy; life is good.â
