Jemere Morgan

Grandson of reggae legend Denroy Morgan and son of Morgan Heritage member Gramps Morgan, singer Jemere Morgan brings a mix of R&B, hip-hop, and pop influences into his own style of reggae music. His 2013 breakthrough hit "Neighborhood Girl" helped build an international audience for subsequent efforts like 2017's Transition and 2019's Self Confidence. Jemere has also collaborated with a number of high-profile artists including Wyclef Jean on the 2021 single "My Kingdom." Born in Atlanta but raised on tour with his father's group, Jemere still found time for high school, where he introduced his talents to the world, performing a version of Mario's hit "Let Me Love You" at the high-school talent show. His first professional showcase came as the opening act on his father's 2011 solo tour, and he capitalized on his heightened visibility with the 2012 mixtape High School Drama hosted by G-Unit and Shadyville associate DJ Outkast. Jemere's real breakthrough came with the 2013 hit single "Neighborhood Girl," which landed on his debut EP, I Am Jemere. Over the next few years, he continued to tour with his father, returning with the breezy track "Anything You Want" in 2015. Finally, in 2017, Jemere delivered his full-length debut, Transition. Featuring guest spots from Jo Mersa Marley, Agent Sasco, J Boog, and his father Gramps Morgan, it was followed two years later by a second album called Self Confidence.
