Gemaine released the video for his latest single ‘Let Me In’ today via Yahoo Music.
Gemaine is aÂ 20-year-old singer/songwriter/actor from Compton, LA whoseÂ music is infused with the iridescent sounds of soul, jazz and pop that blends together in a smooth sensual way. Influenced by the musical sounds of R. Kelly and Michael Jackson, this young star wears his desires and passions on his sleeve.
After releasing a snippet of what would later be his viral single, “Freaky” on Vine,Â Gemaine managed to turn six seconds into over 2 million plays and 200,000 followers on his social networks. He recently released his first body of work, hisÂ CuriousÂ EP.
YahooÂ says, “Compton is known for a number of top hip-hop artists â€“ N.W.A., Game, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Quik, among others â€“ but itâ€™s time to add an R&B singer to the list. Gemaine, a 20-year-old vocalist could be the one.” Today,Â GemaineÂ is proud to release the first video from his recently releasedÂ CuriousÂ EP, “Let Me In.”
Compton singer Gemaine may only be 20 years old, but his debut EPÂ CuriousÂ explores relationships, heartbreak, and healing with soulfulness beyond his years. With a soaring voice that combines technical chops with passion and versatility, Gemaine takes listeners through his journey with his first body of work, as he falls in love, experiences the downfall of a relationship, and picks himself back up.
Although Gemaine is new to the scene,Â Â for the past year and a half, he has been building a steady buzz, starting with the song that ignited his career, “Freaky.” Originally recorded as a 6-second Vine video, the snippet spawned thousands of re-Vines, spurring him to create a full-length version, which has amassed almost 3 million Soundcloud and over 4,000 new plays daily on Spotify. The newcomer has been immersed in music for as long as he could remember, spending most of his free time singing and making music at his church. A self-taught pianist, Gemaine is looking to do more with his talents than just sing. His goal is to create music that “makes people feel good and becomes an escape from their problems.” Gemaine’s debut EP,Â Curious, is now available.
