Without a doubt, KEM's 2010 Soul Train Award nomination ranks him among today's hottest hit-makers, including Alicia Keys and Usher who both lead the pack with four nominations, Drake with three nods, and Monica, Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu and Sade with two each.

KEM released his third album, Intimacy, in August 2010 and he currently has two singles heating up the airwaves at urban AC radio, including "Share My Life," which is destined to become a wedding anthem for generations to come, and the gorgeous ballad "Why Would You Stay," which is holding steady at No. 17 on Billboard's Heatseekers Songs chart and No. 20 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. "Why Would You Stay" also topped the Mediabase Urban AC chart for six weeks and was No. 1 on Billboard's Adult R&B chart for three weeks.

Intimacy debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and quickly soared to No. 1 on iTunes' Top R&B Albums chart, No. 2 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, No. 6 on iTunes Top Albums Chart, and No. 8 on Billboard's Digital Albums chart.

While he maintains a firm grip on the charts, KEM is preparing to launch a headlining tour of North America in 2011. He will also kick off the New Year by appearing on the cover of the January/February 2011 issue of DUB magazine.
