Universal/Motown artist Kem released his “Intimacy: Album III” album in August 2010 and is quietly on the verge of celebrating Gold status on an album for a third straight time. Whereas artists tend to find the sales of their albums tailing off over the course of their career, Kem has consistently sold over 500,000 copies of each album since his major label debut in 2003. In fact, Kem seems to be getting stronger in time, having his highest debut on the Billboard Top 200 charts at number two.
The INTIMACY album, which debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart in August 2010, has produced three hit singles. The first, “Why Would You Stay,” spent several weeks at #1 on the Urban AC Radio charts, and the album’s second and third singles, “Share My Life” and “If It’s Love” both climbed into the chart’s top five. The third single, “If It’s Love,” currently sits at #3 on the chart.
Gold has become the new platinum.
