Over the last ten years, Kem has cemented his place atop the Urban/Adult Contemporary charts and in the hearts of many; from “Love Calls” to “You’re on My Mind”, he’s stirred from his soul emotional ballads and mid-tempo grooves that have become his signature.
This time around, he’s applying his formula of smoothness and intimacy to a Christmas album that’s he’s dubbed “What Christmas Means.” While his most diehard fans are anticipating the follow-up to 2010’s Intimacy: Album III, they will find their appetites satisfied by this holiday offering of covers and original compositions.
This is a Christmas album for lovers, the spark to warmth on cold nights and ignites the feelings of the season. Sure, the standards are here, “The Christmas Song”, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “We Three Kings”, plus the R&B standard “Merry Christmas Baby”, but they each have his fingerprints all over them. No, this is not Bring Crosby or even Nat King Cole, it’s all classic Kem. He’s included his brand of soul into what has become background music during your shopping trips to solidify its place on your iPod on those trips to the mall.
