Six years have slipped by since Kem released his last album, Promise to Love. So what has Motown’s “grown and sexy” R&B statesman been up to during his long break? Marriage and diaper duty.
“I’ve been settling into this new season of my life,” Kem tells Billboard. “I’m a newlywed and we’ve had two children, son Kristoffer and daughter Trinity, since my last release. Between making meals and changing diapers, I’ve been cultivating a deeper devotion to my family, my faith and my music.”
The latter stands front and center with today’s (April 24) release of the singer's latest, “Lie to Me.” The body-swaying mid-tempo number perfectly captures the relatable themes of unconditional love and devotion. Kem’s silky, ever-soothing tenor glides along as he explains in the song’s second verse, “So baby just roll wit me, let the wind hit your back/ Step into the sun, what’s so is done and it’s over baby/ Why don’t we kick back and relax/ There’s nothing over our shoulder/ I give him praise every day that I hold you.”
