Jaheim - The Makings of a Man

The R&B crooner has penned silky tracks more satisfying than his three previous Ghetto albums. He also collaborates with a few of R&B's heavy hitters. The sensual "Hush" is produced by the pied piper R. Kelly, Keyshia Cole lends her voice to the things we do for love on "I've Changed", "Lonely" samples Bobby Womack's "If You Think You're Lonely Now" and Babyface works his magic on the love ballad "Just Don't Have a Clue".

The Makings of a Man speaks to everything every woman wants from a man. Why aren't more brothers like Jaheim?
