NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2013) - "Timeless," "Classic" and " A Return To Real R&B" are just a few of the phrases used to describe singer/songwriter Jaheim's latest release "Appreciation Day."

Selling almost 60, 000 copies worldwide in its first week, landing the album on the Billboard charts at #3 Urban/#6 overall. Currently available via iTunes, (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/appreciation-day/id684566446) this album taps into the timeless tales of love, loss and the overcoming of life's obstacles. Fans flock to Jaheim's facebook (https://www.facebook.com/officialjaheim) page, raving about each song.
After enjoying the #1 charting success of the album's first single, "Age Ain't A Factor," which boasted the well-received message of celebrating the beauty of women at every age. The video, shot by famed photographer turned video director Derek Blanks enlisted the help of ageless beauties: Lisa Raye, Vivica Fox and Cynthia Bailey (see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvNVAd4WrYU). The visual for the fan favorite, "Baby 3Xs" features both Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas of the hit show, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta." This exciting 3 part trilogy drips of sexiness, intrigue and an age old tale of temptation. Premiering today with The YBF.Com.
With titles like, "Blame Me," "I Found You," "Shower Scene" and the official second single "He Don't Exist," this album promises yet another staple in Jaheim's repertoire. No stranger to personal loss and struggle, Jaheim promised to make "Appreciation Day" more than just the name of an album, but an invitation for him and his fans to show those that mean the most to them, how much they care. With that, he has completed a series of fan appreciations over the past few months.
