Prince Jamir is an R&B star in the making

Making it as an R&B artist is a very difficult. However, with the right opportunity, the next R&B sensation may very well be Brooklyn’s own Prince Jamir. Jamir mixes Hip Hop and Soulful R&B music like no other male R&B artist I’ve seen in a while. Jamir’s style and vocal range reminds me of a young Donell Jones, or Musiq Soulchild, because of the way he combines various genres that creates musical experiences for his listeners. As Jamir continues to develop his artistry, he could very well follow in the footsteps fo the aforementioned artists.
His single, “Real Good Thang,” is the latest offering from Prince Jamir, and I am firm believer in the track and in his talents as a singer, and songwriter. From the moment the track begins, you’re enveloped into a groove that forces you to move. For me, the song reminds me of Musiq Soulchild’s single “Buddy,” but with a lighter feel and tone.
That said, Jamir doesn’t attempt to overpower the listener with the high notes that Soulchild often does. Instead, he gives he focuses on connecting with the listener by drawing them in with a feel good song that I can hear at a summer party or BBQ. While I’d like to have heard more from Prince Jamir, he gave us a small sample of what he can do. Along with his new single, he displayed a few videos. In a performance tribute to the Late Luther Vandross, he showed us how soulful he can be, while his music video “You Already Know,” was a feel-good song for the ladies. Although only one song was really put on display by Jamir, the talent and potential are definitely there. As long as he continues to grow, and mature in his music, the sky is the limit for this
