MP3: Gemaine – “Let Me In”

Premiered by VIBE, the 20 Year-Old Compton Singer Releases Sultry Track From Forthcoming EP


Critical Praise:

“R&B singer Gemaine arrives straight out of Compton with a fresh sound that’s bound to make you stop in your tracks.” – VIBE

The Song:

Following his song Freaky that amassed almost 3 million Soundcloud listens and thousands of re-Vines, 20 year-old R&B newcomer Gemaine is now releasing his sultry single “Let Me In.” The track, which premiered on VIBE, has the Compton artist telling the story of his first real relationship experience, struggling to earn trust from his girl. “Let Me In” is from Gemaine’s forthcoming EP, coming out next week.

“This song is targeted toward the ladies of course but it’s really for everyone,” Gemaine explained. “I want to bring back the good vibes, fun, and love that R&B used to have and that everyone adored. This is about my first experience having a real relationship with a girl and genuinely having feelings for her. The struggle was getting her to open up and trust me. It was an adventure and exciting knowing she wanted to trust me but simply couldn’t because I didn’t earn it. I liked that I didn’t have it easy.”

Gemaine has emerged as a newcomer to the music industry, but music has been a big part of his life since he could remember. At the behest of his parents who wanted him and his seven siblings to avoid the trappings of the street life outside their door, Gemaine spent most of his free time singing and making music at his church, known for its high caliber of musical performances. A self-taught pianist, the 20-year-old Compton artist is looking to do more with his talents than just sing. His goal is to create music that, “makes people feel good and becomes an escape from their problems.” He is currently working towards the release of his debut EP.
