J. HOLIDAY

 

 

Laid-back Washington, D.C.-based R&B vocalist J. Holiday (born Nahum Grymes) signed to Capitol and released the Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins-produced single "Be with Me" in 2006. The full-length Back of My Lac' followed in October 2007 and was a major success due to singles like "Bed" and "Suffocate," both of which were co-written by the-Dream and topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Capitol re-released Back of My Lac' at the height of its popularity, in February 2007 -- the album topped the R&B/Hip-Hop chart -- adding three tracks to the original sequence as well as a DVD containing a handful of videos. Holiday's second album, the more romantic Round 2, was released in March 2009. Rather than retrace steps, he collaborated with this time with a mostly different set of songwriters and producers, including Maurice "Big Reese" Sinclair, Ne-Yo, and the Platinum Brothers.

It's one thing to breakthrough the hard wall of music industry by creating sensation, but it's another to creep up and slowly gain the attention. One person fit to the latter is J. Holiday, new R'n'B sensation who has the philosophy in life to just 'chill'. "You know, I'm a people person, and I'm from down South so you know I've got down-home living in me," the singer said. "You know man, I'm down to earth and I just like to chill, and kick it. I like having good people around me. That's really it. I'm a simple dude." Not as simple as his nature, his music career is going to spin at a faster rate, thanks to his infectious hit 'Bed'. The mid-tempo song has won fans an interest in him that, upon its release in June, it debuted at #89 in Billboard Hot 100 chart and climbed all the way up to #24 before eventually peaking at #5. Apparently for Holiday, there's nothing taste better than appreciation of long hard work.

Music Line Group sent him to Atlanta whereupon Capitol agreed to take him under their wing. A contract was signed and the recording began in 2006. With The Underdogs and Darkchild on board the producer ship, a song called 'Be With Me' was released in October 2006 to moderate success. It peaked at #83 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart, but was quickly beaten by second single 'Bed' that really put the spotlight on him.

He was quickly booked in several gigs and was honored to tour with Keyshia Cole during summer 2007. His debut album 'Back of My Lac' took the fifth position on Billboard Hot 200 when it was released on October 2 via Capitol, selling 105,000 copies in the first week.
