“Lie To Me” is from KEM’s forthcoming album – the follow-up to 2014’s Promise To Love, which debuted at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-hop Albums chart and entered the Billboard 200 at No. 3. The album contained the hit singles “Nobody” and “It’s You,”which each spent multiple weeks atop the Urban AC radio chart. “Nobody” earned KEM his third GRAMMY nomination.

Snoop Dogg and Ronald Isley were featured artists on Promise To Love. Since the release of Promise To Love, KEM has married and welcomed two children, inspiring a deeper devotion to family, faith and music.
The Houston Chronicle said, “‘Promise To Love’ is packed with the type of candlelit R&B serenades that the Nashville-born, Detroit-bred singer has built his career on….The music feels timeless…but it still pulses with urgency.” SoulTracks.com noted, “Sensuality, spirituality and homespun wisdom…delivered atop elegant ballads and meticulous, mid-tempo grooves: KEM’s signature style has…endeared him to fans of ‘grown and sexy’ R&B.”
The internationally renowned R&B singer/songwriter has to his credit: one Platinum album (KEM: ALBUM II), two Gold albums (KEMISTRY and INTIMACY), three GRAMMY nominations and five No. 1 singles.In addition, KEM has been nominated for six NAACP Image Awards, two Soul Train Awards and a BET Centric Award.
