R&B Single of the Year

On May 17, 2005, KEM released his sophomore effort, Kem: Album II. With a hungry and dedicated fanbase, the singer sold more than 500,000 copies in two weeks. That same year, he won his first Billboard Music Award for Top Adult R&B Single of the Year for the No. 1 urban adult contemporary radio song "I Can't Stop Loving You."
