Raheem DeVaughn is a multi-Grammy nominated artist and label owner. The son of jazz cellist Abdul Wadud, Maryland-based R&B vocalist Raheem DeVaughn kicked his career into gear with a series of independent releases, aided in part by the cash reward earned from winning a talent contest. Jive Records signed him and released “The Love Experience” in June 2005. The album peaked within the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 album chart, with the singles "You" and "Guess Who Loves You More". “Love Behind the Melody” followed in January 2008. The album’s first single, "Woman," was nominated for a 2008 Grammy in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. A year later, "Customer" was nominated for Best R&B Song. Led by the late 2009 single "Bulletproof," featuring Ludacris, DeVaughn's “The Love & War MasterPeace” debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200, and received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album in 2010. He also was nominated for Centric and Image Awards. DeVaughn then went independent with 2013’s “A Place Called Love Land” and 2015’s “Love Sex Passion”. Recently, DeVaughn has also established a nonprofit named LoveLife Foundation, and starred in the hit play “Love Jones The Musical” in Las Vegas. The 2018 single “Don’t Come Easy” has spent 18 weeks on the Billboard “Adult R&B Charts”
