Kem Net Worth $1 Million

To begin with, Kem actually grew up in Detroit, Michigan. After finishing his studies, Kem found himself homeless and became addicted to drugs, which completely isolated him from his family. He could barely solve these problems himself, yet as he says, thanks to this spirituality and music he managed to come through his problems.

Concerning his professional career, Kem claims not to create music for the mass market. Kem thinks that his music and his words are addressed to an amateur adult audience which is fond of the soul/jazz genres. However, it looks like he is loved by audiences, as he has managed to sell millions of albums. At the end of 2001, he signed with the prestigious label Motown. He wrote and produced his first studio album “Kemistry” which was released in 2003, which sold over 500,000 copies and was certified gold in the USA. The first single from the album, “Love Calls” became a radio hit, peaking in 25th position on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. His second album, simply titled “Album II” (2005) was even more successful, having been certified platinum and topping the Billboard R&B Chart. Additionally, Kem won the Billboard Music Award for the Top Adult R&B Single of the Year in 2005, with the single “I Can’t Stop Loving You”. The same year he was nominated for another Billboard Music Award in the category of Top Adult R&B Artist of the Year. His net worth was by now well established.

In 2010, his third studio album “Intimacy Album III” was released, which rose to second position on both Billboard R&B and USA main chart, and was certified gold in the USA. It should be noted that the lead single of the album “Why Would You Stay” appeared in the top 20 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs and Heatseekers charts. In 2011, he was nominated for Grammy Awards in the categories of the Best R&B Male Performance and the Best R&B Song for “Why Would You Stay”. In 2014, Kem released his fourth studio album “Promise To Love” which also topped the Billboard R&B. Overall, all the above mentioned albums and singles have added significant sums to the total size of Kem’s net worth.

Finally, in the personal life the singer, he is apparently still single, and reveals little information about his private life, although he is known to have two daughters.
