On the heels of KEM’s smash hit “Lie to Me” – which has maintained the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart for six weeks in a row – the R&B superstar releases his new single, “Live Out Your Love” featuring the iconic Toni Braxton. KEM’s signature silky vocals give way to Braxton’s rich, sultry sound on the track, which is from his upcoming album, LOVE ALWAYS WINS (Motown), set for release on August 28. The two artists co-wrote the song and KEM produced it with Derek “DOA” Allen. Download / stream HERE.
The collaboration was sparked last year when Braxton extended an invitation for KEM to perform at her Valentine’s Day concert in Detroit. “My wife and I went to Toni’s show at the Fox Theatre,” recalls KEM. “She called me up onstage to sing with her and it was an incredible moment.”
While working on his new album, KEM began to envision “Live Out Your Love” as a duet and asked Braxton to join him. Due to COVID-19, they couldn’t record in the same room. When Braxton sent her vocal to KEM, he was blown away. “I loved the way she recorded, the texture of her voice,” he says. “The pairing of our voices was just amazing.”
