Reunite With Alicia Keys

'We've been working on a song for a while now,' he tells MTV News of Keys, while also gushing about mentor Blake Shelton.

It's been a week since Jermaine Paul won the second season of "The Voice," beating out Juliet Simms to take the title for Team Blake, but the former Alicia Keys backup singer still can't believe all that has happened to him in such a short amount of time.

Paul stopped by MTV News on Monday and reflected on the moment they announced his name as the winner and how his coach, and friend, Blake Shelton was able to bring him back to reality.

"I was going through a whole emotional, mental shock, and I even physically thought my legs weren't under me, I had my hands on my head," Paul said. "I had this crazy tingling sensations like going through my head — it's a feeling I can't even explain — and he brought me back to reality and grabbed me and was like, 'You did it, man! It's you!' It was an amazing feeling."




'Voice' Winner Jermaine Paul Talks Bromance With Blake Shelton


Many were surprised when Paul chose Shelton to be his mentor in the beginning of the season, given that he's an R&B artist, while Blake is a country star. But much like Shelton and fellow coach Adam Levine, Paul developed his own "bromance" with his mentor.

"He's a good guy, he's a man's man, he's a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of guy, and that's the kind of guy I try to be," Paul said. "That was ultimately one of the main reasons I chose him as my coach. I just felt his sincerity, the realness. He jokes around a lot, you know? When he walks in the room, he definitely has a way of lighting up the air."

Another huge supporter of Paul's is his former boss, Alicia Keys. Paul revealed that the superstar singer was always advocating for him to begin his own solo career.

"She's always been supportive. Even while I was singing, I would tell her, 'I want to go solo,' and she was like, 'What are you waiting on?' and I would tell her, 'I'm waiting on God to fix things out,' and she was like, 'Maybe God is waiting on you.' "

Clearly, Keys' advice has paid off for Paul, who is hoping to release a track with her on his future album. "We've been working on a song for a while now," Paul said. "And, you know, what better time than now?"

Bio

After performing on worldwide tours and Grammy Award winning songs, singing sensation Jermaine Paul is ready to share his voice with the world. Born in New York as the fifth of ten children, music has been a part of Jermaine’s life since day one. “I don’t think I’d be doing music if it weren’t for my mom, my dad, and my brothers and sisters,” he says. At the tender age of 8, Jermaine began singing in local churches and talent shows. By the age of 12, he learned to play the drums and taught himself how to play guitar. By 17, Jermaine was signed to Shaquille O’Neal’s Twism Records as a part of R&B group 1 Accord.

Affording him the opportunity to tour around the world with Shaq and rappers Lord Tariq and Peter Gunz, Jermaine fully capitalized on his opportunity. As the lead singer of 1Accord, he performed on the Booty Call soundtrack, a movie starring Jamie Foxx and Jada Pinkett Smith. He also wrote and produced for R&B group BlackStreet and sang background vocals for numerous R&B artists the likes of Mary J. Blige, Brandy, and Kelly Price. However, it would be his association with music superstar Alicia Keys that would change his career forever.

Using his musical talents to capture the ears of audiences around the world as an opening act and background singer for the worldwide superstar, Jermaine has established himself as a bonafide star, appearing on the hit single “Diary” from The Diary of Alicia Keys and “If This World Were Mine” on the Luther Vandross dedicated compilation So Amazing: An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross. Now as he sets out on a solo career, Jermaine is ready to prove to the world that he is the real deal. With a deep musical bloodline running through his veins and a Grammy Award already under his belt, Jermaine remains humble about his impending success. “I don’t know what the future holds for me,” he says. “I just want the music to be heard and for people to enjoy it.”
