Jhiame’s self-titled album called Jhiame [Jhiame – Jhiame] has that neo-soul New Jack Swing sound with an R&B/Soul edge to it. This album came out on vinyl and CD in 1992 on Jhiame Productions out of Houston, Texas. The Jhiame albums production is very similar to the early 90’s production style of Teddy Riley. Jhiame was heavily influenced by Guy at the time of producing his first album. Jhiame was heavily influenced by Guy at the time of his production when he first started out producing for various artists including Goldie and himself.

If you are looking for or longing for longevity, then you will be disappointed as this Jhiame album has only has 8 songs. Most of this album is short. However, if you are a fan of long obscure R&B/Soul, then this Jhiame album is perfect for you. Most Jhiame albums are overlooked and overshadowed by R&B/Soul fans in general altogether. The Jhiame album is an iconic masterpiece in Houston soul and Houston rap.

Rhythm of Luv is a smooth R&B love song that is obviously a slow jam hence the title itself. A mellow R&B slow jam. Jhiame was heavily influenced by R&B slow jams when he produced and wrote this song of his. Rhythm of Luv is a touch of R&B/Soul.

Why U Wanna Change Me Now is about now that they’re a couple, the woman wants Jhiame to change his ways. Jhiame ain’t up on it. Why U Wanna Change Me Now was possibly influenced from the song Why U Treat Me So Bad by Club Nouveau. Why U Wanna Change Me Now is soul song influenced with old school R&B.

C’mon Babe is about Jhaime getting a woman to love him.

Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is a bedroom oriented R&B/Soul love ballad perfectly suited for your lover. The music itself proves to be smooth with Jhiame’s talented production skills. The song Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is for the sistas.

Much of Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) has an early 90s R&B sound. Added with some organic soul music is some R&B flava along with that Memphis soul sound. To sum it all up, Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) is an R&B slow jam and is yet another sex song. Jhiame was very much influenced with the New Jack Swing sound that was fairly prevalent in R&B at the time. Added with some hip hop flava along with R&B flava is a touch of Memphis soul. As a matter of fact, Jhiame wrote and produced Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) with Wordman along with the help from others lending a hand in production.

The song Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) came from the Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv’n Wrong vinyl single in 1990 on Jhiame Productions. The single Doesn’t This Love (Feel Good 2 U) / Ya! Liv’n Wrong had something for the brothas and something for the sistas, hence the title.

Inner City Blues is a cover version of the same song by Marvin Gaye. Jhiame raps on Inner City Blues at the very beginning. Inner City Blues samples Marvin Gaye – Inner City Blues and The DOC – The Formula which you can hear clearly if you focus your attention on the samples used along with Jhiame’s production. Jhiame was influenced by Marvin Gaye’s song Inner City Blues when he first produced his own cover of Inner City Blues for his first album.

Jhiame represents Jhiame Productions as he raps about his production company in the very beginning of the song. Rap meets R&B/Soul on Inner City Blues. Jhiame sure knows how to captivate his audience with flows in his own raps. Other than that, Jhiame sure knows how to captivate his audiences attention with his soulful sound.

I rate this album 4/5****!!
