It's a remarkable feat for an urban adult contemporary artist whose previous albums - 2002's Kemistry and 2005's Kem Album II, both certified gold - have collectively sold more than 1.5 million units largely due to physical sales in stores.

Indeed, Kem's newfound success in the digital music marketplace is a testament to his stature as a leading man in the world of R&B music.

Of course, Intimacy is also flying off the shelves in stores such as Target, Walmart, and Best Buy, and the reorders are already pouring in!

All of this - the critical acclaim, the digital sales, the positive feedback from retail - is a sign that Kem is poised to enjoy one of the year’s best opening weeks for an urban AC artist.

Check Out What The Critics Are Saying About KEM and Intimacy:

"...insidiously affecting...first and foremost designed to soothe." - The New York Times

"...the singer-songwriter's most finessed effort yet." - Detroit Free Press

"...the 10 songs on Intimacy reveal an artist who is stretching his versatility and opening up about deeply personal lessons." - Heart & Soul

"Romantic, yet reverential; subtle, yet strong, Kem's brand of Intimacy envelopes the senses and leaves them clamoring all at once, the hallmark of an entertainer in full command of his artistic range and finesse." -

"In a smart bit of counter-programming, Kem's style delivers a sensually grown-up rebuke to the vim of hip-hop and the punch of retro-soul." - New York Daily News
